Best of the Year Hamper 2018


The "Best of the Year Hamper" has become an eagerly awaited seasonal update to the hamper range for our many returning customers. This is most certainly the hamper for the foodie with a sense of discovery. The contents are combination of the cream of new introductions, updated versions of existing products and products that our customers consistently rate as the best in class.

Over the past few years we have seen various culinary trends: functional foods characterised 2014;  2015 saw many newer food regions challenge the established food producing areas; in 2016 foraged foods arrived into kitchen cupboards. The biggest feature of 2017 was the mushrooming of Irish craft beverages of all types.

2018 continued with the influence of wellness, functionality and fermenting appearing in new and existing foods while also producing top class taste experiences. We are also seeing the ethos of local craft food is infusing other craft creations.

This years hamper collection reflects all of this, giving you great tasting local foods that nourish and satisfy, as will as a multi sensory hamper presentation that includes:
