The Gentleman's Hamper
Our aptly named Gentleman’s Hamper really packs a punch thanks to its choice of varied, excellent ingredients that are perfect for any man who appreciates the finer things in life. The star of the show is a wonderful bottle of Pierre et Papa red, followed by a fantastic selection of cheeses, dried ham, and all the accompaniments you could possibly require including chutneys and biscuits. It really is the perfect gift for a discerning gentlemen.
We have carefully considered the hamper’s contents so that it contains hand-picked, complementary items that will help bring pleasure to the recipient.
This male oriented hamper features first and foremost a bottle of Pierre et Papa Maison Familiale Rouge, a medium bodied wine with silky smooth tannins that offers ripe flavours of plush, juicy fruit and notes of cherry and soft red fruits. It’s perfect for enjoying on its own or alongside the excellent cheeses that we have included. He’ll find a Snowdonia Mature Cheddar, which complements the wine very well with its creamy yet flavoursome taste and smooth texture. And Cotswold Organic Blue Cheese which harbours a deliciously creamy texture with a fresh, clean taste that develops as the cheese matures.
Couple these cheeses and the wine with the Hamptons Wild Boar Pâté, which is a top quality authentic French pâté made especially for us. It delivers a deliciously meaty, flavoursome taste and is excellent alongside Carr’s Water Biscuits, the thin, crispy biscuits baked until golden brown which serve as perfect carriers. We’ve included Oxsprings English Air Dried Ham made from locally reared pork and thinly sliced, having first been aged for a minimum of eight months and salt cured to give it a fabulous taste. He will also find some Caramelised Onion Chutney that has won the Great Taste Award and is perfect for accompanying cheese and meat. Also some award-winning Tomato Garlic and Ginger Chutney which delivers a spicy twist to traditional tomato chutneys. He can finish off with a Cheese Board Cake, a deliciously rich fruit cake made with sultanas and figs, which goes perfectly with mature cheese.
Hamptons offer a range of packaging options. We can pack your hamper in a special gift box or an open wicker basket or a wicker picnic basket or in a plain Hamptons box. Purchases can be made at the shop or delivered. If the latter, we ensure that it is carefully protected with extra outer packaging with consideration for the environment to make sure that your hamper arrives safely. We use a flexible delivery service, operating a weekday 24-hour service to the UK, so you can rest assured that as long as you order in time, your hamper will reach its recipient by the day you specify.
