We now have over 150 products that we are testing, tasting and analysing the look of for our 2014 Luxury Scottish Hamper range.  We are running several independent Scottish food tasting sessions, where REAL Scottish people taste and review each product.

We are already deep in the planning stages for our 2014 Christmas hampers. 

We have sourced food and drink from small independant Scottish food producers from Orkney in the north and Dumfries in the south right across from Skye in the west and St. Andrews in the east.

It is quite incredible the variety and quality of food that is being produced in Scotland at the moment, and we are delighted to be working with so many of them to help grow their business, and also let more customers hear about them.

Our team are currently reviewing and testing all samples we have received, and will only be selling the finest flavours that have...
