Author: Nicole Adler   Date Posted:29 June 2017 

There are some amazing gourmet products in our range of Australian Christmas Hampers, which explains why our Australian Christmas hampers are extremely popular gifts during the holiday season. If you are not familiar with our Australian Christmas hampers yet – or if you want to get familiar with our finest gourmet treats – be sure to discover some of our personal favourites below.

Which Gourmet Treats Do You Recommend for Customers Who Love French Cuisine?

Our Australian Christmas hampers are filled with French treats; this does not only include French champagne, but also some spreads that will make a great addition to cheese platters and crackers. One French spread can be found in our Ultimate Foodies Hamper, more specifically Le Cordon Blue Paris Olive Spread. The olive spread from Le Gordon Blue is a traditional olive spread, which has a hint of fennel to get a flavour that is even more diverse.

Le Cordon Blue Paris Olive Spread is suitable for cheese platters, since the flavours in the spread complement young and even mature cheese perfectly. Recipients can also use the Le Cordon Blue Paris Olive Spread with some crackers. So, this French delicacy will deliver for any recipient!

Which Champagne Do You Recommend for the Holiday Season?

Even though we usually recommend the Moet & Chandon Brut Imperial NV Champagne for the holiday season, there is one other champagne you cannot afford to miss out on – the Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label NV.

The Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label NV Champagne has been the symbol of the house of Veuve Clicquot since 1772. The champagne delivers the ultimate blend of power and finesse, which makes this a perfect champagne to serve during the holiday season.

To create the Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label NV Champagne, the house of Veuve Clicquot uses 50 to 60 grape varieties. The unique combination of grape varieties in the blend enables them to deliver a champagne with the structure of pinot noir, roundness of pinot meunier, and elegance of chardonnay.

The combination of grape varieties influences the appearance and the aroma of the champagne too. The appearance is characterised by a distinct golden-yellow colour with tiny bubbles, followed by an aroma of peach, Mirabelle plum, pear, vanilla and brioche.

A bottle of Veuve Clicquot Yellow Label NV Champagne can be cellared for several years. By cellaring the champagne, collectors can bring the brioche notes in the aroma and palate a little more to the forefront. So, if you give this champagne to a collector, be sure to mention this.

Which Gourmet Treats Do You Recommend for Chocoholics?

We do not have a specific product recommendation for chocoholics, we have an entire product range recommendation! At the Hamper Emporium, customers can find luxurious chocolates from the Butlers Irish Chocolates brand. This brand is known for exquisite chocolate flavours, but also for the handmade quality of their chocolates. Therefore, you cannot afford to pass on one of the gift hampers containing a Butlers chocolate selection.

Our range does not only include regular chocolates from Butlers, because our hampers contain award-winning chocolates from the Irish chocolate brand too. In “the Dessert Menu”, you can find the finest confections which have obtained numerous awards, while the “Butlers Irish Chocolate Truffles” contain the favourite chocolates of Butlers Irish Chocolates customers. So, there is much to choose from.

Customers looking for the perfect chocolate hamper for their recipient should certainly consider the Chocoholics Hamper by Butlers. The Chocoholics Hamper by Butlers is one of the most extensive chocolate hampers in our range, containing only the best chocolates from Butlers Irish Chocolates. So, this hamper is the perfect choice for your chocoholic recipient.

Which Gourmet Treat Do You Recommend for Biscuit Lovers?

Recipients who love their biscuits will also find several choices at the Hamper Emporium; this includes an exquisite biscuit selection from Maison Fossier. We offer the classic Biscuit Roses, which put the house of Maison Fossier on the international map. However, our range also contains other releases from Maison Fossier; this includes French palmier pastries, chocolate chip puff pastries and more.

Maison Fossier has an extensive history dating back to the 17th century, so this is undoubtedly one of the bakeries with the most experience worldwide. The House of Fossier creates more than biscuits alone though, because Maison Fossier creates other delicacies such as cakes, sweet grocery items, savoury grocery, etc.

If you would like to get some other biscuits for your recipient as well, be sure to consider the biscuits from Byron Bay too. Like Maison Fossier, Byron Bay is known for superior quality and the use of superior ingredients. Byron Bay is also a brand that provides gluten-free options, so they speak to a wider range of recipients.

Does the Hamper Emporium Have Any Gourmet Crackers?

The Hamper Emporium also provides gourmet crackers to customers; this includes brands such as Baylies Epicurean Delights and Partridges Artisan Bakehouse. Both brands are in Australia and known to use fresh ingredients for their gourmet creations.

If you love delicious gourmet treats, be sure to look for some of the other Baylies Epicurean Delights treats. This brand often delivers handmade cake for the holiday season, but also some lavash and other delicious treats that will look great on the Christmas table.

Where Can I Find More Gourmet Treats at the Hamper Emporium?

The best place to look for the finest gourmet treats at the Hamper Emporium is our collection of “gourmet food & wine hampers”. In these hampers, you can find the finest gourmet treats, but also excellent bottles of wine, champagne, whisky and so much more.

Is your recipient not too fond of alcohol? No worries, because you can also count on a gourmet hamper range without any alcohol. Simply head over to the “gourmet food (no alcohol)” category to discover all our alcohol-free options.
