Artisan Food Hampers from Barbury Hill
During the past year, many of us have had to think outside the box when it comes to gifts for birthdays, anniversaries and special occasions. But as we’ve discovered, thinking inside the box can often lead to the best gifts, especially when that box is a Barbury Hill hamper of carefully selected specialist food and drink gifts from small British producers. From whisky to gin, cheese to chocolate; an artisan food hamper from Barbury Hill brings together some of the UK’s finest produce, delivered across the UK.
Whether it’s a cheering message of hope, birthday wishes, or a gift to let a loved one know they’re in your thoughts, the personalised notes we send out with Barbury Hill’s food and drink gifts never fail to lift our spirits. Showing our love through food is a human trait that crosses cultures, borders and time, and we’ve seen that now more than ever in the gifts being ordered through Barbury Hill and delivered to family and friends across the UK.
With this in mind, we’re delighted to now offer thoughtfully handpicked hampers of artisan food and drink. Bringing together a carefully selected range of gifts that showcase the best of British food and drink, there’s a hamper to suit every taste, from the gin-drinker to the lover of afternoon tea and the whisky buff.
We can’t be the only ones guilty of rushing a cup of tea at our desks or first thing in the morning before the school run. With this hamper from Barbury Hill, you’re giving the gift of time and reminding loved ones to take a moment for themselves. They can enjoy a cup of Rington’s English Breakfast with a slice of traditional fruit cake from the Original Cake Co or a piece of Classic Fudge Shortbread from Northumbrian Bakehouse. Two jars of Lady Waterford Preserves encourage them to create a round of delicate sandwiches, while the Dark Chocolate with Earl Grey Tea tops off a delicious afternoon tea ritual.
Ginger Rogers & Fred Astaire, Tom & Jerry, jelly & ice cream. Some pairings are just meant to be, and sparkling wine and chocolate are no exception. This gift box brings together an award-winning 2015 Cuvée from the small vineyard of Breaky Bottom in the Sussex Downs, with a handpicked selection of handmade ganache truffles, white chocolate truffles and a bar of North Chocolates’ Dark with Smoked Almonds.
Carefully presented in a wooden crate, this food gift has all the ingredients for a perfect gin and tonic. Alnwick Gin hails from Northumberland and its locally foraged botanicals include rosehip, lavender and rosemary. This floral nose is beautifully complemented by the award-winning chocolate that sits alongside it, and the selection of three premium mixers from Fentimans that allow the recipient to craft their own cocktail.
Featuring two bottles of rum and a slab of dark chocolate, this hamper has all the makings of a perfect gift for a rum-lover. The Legendary Dark Alnwick Rum is a rich, bold combination of caramelised sugar, liquorice and vanilla, with a smooth finish that pairs well with coke or simply on the rocks. The Golden Spiced Rum is an equal delight, its black pepper, orange, ginger and vanilla notes combining into a spicy, warming hit of flavour. Paired with a decadent slab of Studio 28, Coconut and Lime dark chocolate, this hamper offers the recipient a much-needed excuse to make time for a moment of relaxation.
The renowned Lagavulin is the star of the show in this luxurious hamper, a peaty, smokey and intense whisky that is a staple in the collection of many connoisseurs. Handpicked to bring out the complex flavours of the whisky, the box features an Oak-smoked and a Cheviot cheese, along with crackers for a savoury nibble. To round off the treat, luxury shortbread from Northumbrian Bakehouse and a Dark Orange Crunch Bar from North Chocolates add a sweet edge.
For a Father’s Day gift, a special birthday or a milestone anniversary, a hamper of food and drink with a personalised message from Barbury Hill shows your loved ones they’re in your thoughts. The delicious British produce is a treat in itself, but more than anything, they offer the gift of time and self-care; prompting a priceless moment of relaxation and reflection in these busy times.
