Why Should I Choose the Chocolates & Red Hamper This Christmas?
One of our recommended Australian Christmas hampers is the Chocolates & Red Hamper. Inside this hamper, your recipient can find classic products from Byron Bay, Morgan’s, Willie’s Cacao, and Cape Mentelle. In addition to that, these Australian Christmas hampers also hold a delicious Butlers Irish Chocolates.
Butlers Chocolates finds it origins in 1932, when Marion Butler founded the company. Her first confections carried the name “Chez Nous Chocolates” and built the excellent reputation Butlers Chocolates is known for now. Marion continued making her delicious chocolates until 1959. Then, the Sorensen family took over Butlers Irish Chocolates, but they kept the superior quality these chocolates were known for.
Now, the Sorensen family still owns Butlers Irish Chocolates. In 2012, they celebrated 80 years of chocolate making. They employ more than 400 people for production, packing, dispatch, sales, and marketing, which also guarantees the handmade quality of their chocolates.
In conclusion, Butlers Irish Chocolates are perfect for recipients who are true chocoholics. They are suitable gifts during the holidays, but also suitable gifts for Valentine’s Day, anniversaries, and birthdays.
Why Should I Choose the Champagne Celebration Hamper This Christmas?
Recipients can celebrate the holidays the right way with a good bottle of champagne; this is one of the reasons why we recommend the Champagne Celebration Hamper as a holiday gift. The hamper holds a tremendous number of savoury treats, biscuits, sweets, chocolates, pantry items, but also a bottle of exquisite champagne!
Moet & Chandon Imperial is one of the best-known champagnes in the world. The champagne is a blend of 100 different wines; this includes a good percentage of reserve wines too! The unique blend of the champagne delivers the body of pinot noir, the suppleness of pinot meunier and the finesse of chardonnay; this makes the Moet & Chandon Imperial perfect for celebrations!
The Moet & Chandon is an aperitif for most recipients, but your recipient can also enjoy it with a nice gourmet meal. If your recipient wants to enjoy this luxurious champagne with some delicious foods, be sure to recommend combining it with sushi, scallops, oysters, white fish, and white fruits.
Of course, the Moet & Chandon Imperial is not the only reason you should choose the Champagne Celebration Hamper as a holiday gift, since this gift hamper also holds some luxurious gourmet treats. Recipients can count on classic pantry items such as Calvi ‘Mosto Oro’ Extra Virgin Olive Oil, but also ‘The Dessert Menu’ from Butlers Irish Chocolates!
Why Should I Choose the Best of All Gourmet Hampers for Christmas?
If you need a present for a gourmet lover during the holidays, the Best of All Gourmet Hampers is the perfect gift for that recipient! Inside the Best of All Gourmet Hampers, recipients can find delicious foods from various gourmet brands; this includes Baylies Epicurean Delights, Rick Stein and Gourmet Regional.
One of the products that demands some extra attention is the Green Olive Spread with Fennel. Green Olive Spread with Fennel is a classic spread from the Provence, made with green olives, capers, fennel, olive oil, spices, concentrated lemon juice and salt. Your recipient can spread it on a nice piece of toast, but it could also go with vegetable and fish dishes.
The Best of Gourmet Hampers also holds a bottle of Islander Estate ‘Bark Hut Road’ Shiraz. The Islander Estate Shiraz is a smooth shiraz will complex tannins. It is an easy-drinking wine, with hints of violets and ripe red fruits. The Cape Mentelle winery also recommends having this shiraz with a delicious roast lamb.
Why Should I Choose the White Wine & Nibbles Hamper?
There are some remarkable wines inside Hamper Emporium’s Christmas hampers; this includes the bottle of 2016 Robert Oatley Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc inside the White Wine & Nibbles Hamper. The 2016 Robert Oatley Signature Series Sauvignon Blanc received 93 points from James Halliday, so this wine is a recommendation for many wine connoisseurs.
The Robert Oatley Signature Series Sauvignon Blanc is robust and vibrant, featuring a refreshing palate of passionfruit and chive. There are many lemon and grassy notes throughout the palate as well, which means there is more complexity to this wine than first meets the eye.
Recipients can cellar the Robert Oatley Signature Series Sauvignon Blanc for two years. They can savour this wine on its own, but also combine it with poultry, seafood, and fresh vegetables. Therefore, this wine is undoubtedly a recommendation for people who enjoy the finer things in life.
Why Should I Choose the Luxury Pamper Hamper with Chandon Rosé This Christmas?
If you want to pamper a female recipient, we can recommend the Luxury Pamper Hamper with Chandon Rosé for the holiday season. This hamper holds many biscuits and sweets from Maison Fossier and Butlers Irish Chocolates, but also a new rosé added to our range recently.
The new rosé added to the Hamper Emporium range is the Chandon Rosé. This wine features a beautiful pink colour, intertwined with intense ripe strawberry, juicy watermelon and red cherry fruit aromas and flavours that make this wine a true recommendation for every Australian woman.
Even though rosés feel less interesting for wine collectors and connoisseurs; this wine is certainly an exception. It has the defined structure of point noir, combined with the many flavours and aromas this wine has. The result is a must-have wine for Australian wine lovers!
