First and foremost in this unique Christmas hamper is an alcoholic treat for the adults. We’ve included a bottle of both red and white Pierre et Papa Maison Familiale 2014, both family-made wines which are high quality and well balanced, produced from grapes from Southern France. The white is a fresh and aromatic wine, crisp and lively with an abundance of tangy citrus fruit on the palate, and generally a refreshing and highly quaffable choice. The red has ripe flavours of plush, juicy fruit with notes of cherry and soft red fruits, with a medium bodied style and silky smooth tannins.
Onto some delicious foods, and beginning with the savoury selection, you’ll be bowled over by your delicious Stow Truckle Cheese – a strong, creamy cheddar with a firm texture and a good colour. It goes perfectly on Stockans Oatcakes (which have a lovely cheese flavour), as does Hamptons Duck Pate with Armagnac, made especially for us in France. Enjoy Cottage Delight Caramelised Onion Chutney, which beautifully complements all of the above. We’ve included some other bits and bobs for the pantry, including Highfield Honey Mustard for Ham, a hot chilli and sweet honey mustard, and Cottage Delight Cranberry Sauce as the perfect accompaniment for your Christmas turkey. You’ll also find Highfield Merry Christmas Preserve, a tasty blend of strawberries, raspberries, and blackcurrants with a subtle hint of mulling spice for a truly festive spread, as well as Cotswold Honey, produced just a short distance from our shop.
For those with a sweet tooth, you’ll be in your element with this hamper. For starters, there is a box of Hamlet Assorted Belgian Chocolates which are handsomely presented in a red croc style box. You’ll also enjoy a Gingerbread Santa and the main event, a Coles Brandy Christmas Pudding, luxuriously made with the finest brandy. Savour also the Walkers All Butter Shortbread, the finest pure butter shortbread from the Scottish Highlands, as well as a Cottage Delight Fruit Cake, a moreish hand baked, moist fruit cake which is perfect after some cheese and a glass of red. Finally, your luxury hamper wouldn’t be complete without some tasty Walkers Luxury Miniature Mince Pies and Taylors of Harrogate Christmas Coffee.
Hamptons offer a range of packaging options. We can pack your hamper in a special gift box or open wicker basket or a wicker picnic basket or 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 your hamper arrives safely. We use a flexible delivery service, operating a weekday 24-hour schedule to the UK, so you can rest assured that as long as you order in good time, your hamper will reach its recipient in time for Christmas.
