Luxury Gift Hamper
Luxury Gift Hamper
This fabulous gift hamper is filled with delicious foods for a truly special treat.
Pablo y Walter (75cl), a celebration of Mendoza - the colour, culture and flavour and a celebration of friendship. A really pure expression of Malbec, bright red and wonderfully aromatic with lifted red currant and cassis. Muy, muy fantasticó – richly bloody, vibrant, Latin and velveteen.
Lunetta Rosé Spumante Brut (20cl) a fresh and dry sparkling rosé with persistent mousse, beautifully salmon pink in colour. Red berry characters on the nose and palate leading to a fresh, delicate and incisive finish.
Toast for cheese (100g) – dates, hazelnuts and pumpkin seeds, thin light and crisp toast, baked twice like biscotti and uniquely studded with fruits, nuts and seeds. Toast' is oh so thin, light and crisp, but what makes it unique is that around 60 % of the cracker is composed of fruits, nuts and seeds. Making it oh so fruity, oh so nutty and oh so - well 'seedy'!
Chicken Rillette (110g) with lemon oil and cracked black pepper free range chicken, poached in duck fat and enhanced with lemon oil and black pepper, produced in Cornwall this delicious slow cooked rillette is perfect on crackers.
Cheshire Chutney (185g) filled with tomatoes, apples, carrots, swede, courgette, cauliflower and spices, a great accompaniment to cheese.
Slow Baked Dottato Fig Ball (200g) - these exceptional, sweet Dottato figs come from Calabria, southern Italy. The fresh figs are oven-baked slowly for up to 12 hours, formed into balls and hand-wrapped in fig leaves. The result is a taste as dark as molasses, with a liquorice-like intensity. Unwrap the ball and let the precious figs tumble out onto the cheese-board.
Drunken Burt Cheese (180g) – is in fact a Burt's cheese washed in cider. It has a semi-soft texture with a golden colour and a smokey pungent flavour. Hand-made using pasteurised cow's milk from local dairies in Cheshire, Drunken Burt, is a Burt's cheese with a difference; instead of piercing the cheese during ripening, which encourages blue veins to develop, the cheese is washed in cider. The 'paste' of cheese takes on some of the golden colour of the cider and also some of the flavour characteristics, sometimes you almost pick up the smoky note from the oak barrels. You can expect the younger cheese to have a slightly 'chalky' centre, which softens as it continues to mature. (Pasteurised, Vegetarian, Cow’s Milk.)
Appleby’s Cheshire Cheese (200g) – this is a unique, complex Cheshire, with a crumbly texture and a zesty, full-bodied and tangy flavour. Cheshire is in fact Britain’s oldest cheese, having been made since before Roman times. Today only the Appleby family make traditional, farmhouse, raw milk, cloth-bound Cheshire cheese, using milk from their own herd of cows. Appleby’s Cheshire is still made using the unpasteurised morning and evening milk from Paul Appleby’s farm. The Appleby’s land extends to the salt plains of the Cheshire marshes, which add a unique saline flavour and mineral quality to the milk. Annatto, a traditional neutral colouring, is introduced to give a pale orange colour to the cheese. It is then matured for anywhere between six weeks and six months. (Unpasteurised, Cow’s milk).
Comté (200g) – an unpasteurised French cheese from the Jura mountain region: smooth, mellow, nutty, and with a long finish, aged for up to 18 months. Each wheel tells a unique story Comté takes time to acquire its taste. Once the milk has been skimmed and pressed, it is stored in a maturing cellar for up to 18 months, or more to gain its full spectrum of delicious flavours. Nutty, creamy, fruity, peppery and toasty are just some of the notes you will come to love. (Unpasteurised, Cow’s milk).
