Who Is Maison Fossier?

Maison Fossier is the oldest biscuit manufacturer in France. The company was created in 1756 and invented one of the most recognisable biscuits in the world – Biscuit Roses. If you would like to try the very first creation of Maison Fossier, be sure to have a look at our Christmas hampers and try the Biscuit Roses for yourself!

The Maison Fossier Company is located in Reims, which is also the champagne region of France. The Biscuit Roses which were invented before the creation of Maison Fossier in 1690, were biscuits meant to accompany champagne from Reims. When you try Biscuit Roses today, it is definitely a good idea to have a glass of French champagne in hand.

Over the course of the years, Maison Fossier have tried their hand at a number of biscuit releases and sweet treats, which includes all-time favourites such as marzipan, gingerbread, macarons and more. In our range of Christmas hampers, you will find several delightful releases from the Maison Fossier bakery.



Who Is Jules Destrooper?

Belgian Jules Destrooper started in 1886 as colonial trader, importing spices from faraway lands such as Africa and the Middle-East. Thanks to these imported spices, Jules Destrooper discovered a unique flavour for their almond thins, leading to the worldwide success of this biscuit manufacturer.

Another great invention of Jules Destrooper was the Belgian butter waffle, which was first released on the Belgian market in 1890. Approximately twenty years later, the Belgian butter waffle from Jules Destrooper was rewarded with a golden award at a food show in France. Since its founding, Jules Destrooper also obtained other awards for their selective exports and the quality of their products.

Jules Destrooper is now under the management of the fourth generation of the Jules Destrooper family. Their biscuits are still made according to secret family recipes, but with a few minor alterations that match the needs of the consumer. When you purchase one of our Christmas hampers containing Jules Destrooper biscuits, you can be sure they will not contain any artificial colourings or flavourings.

Who Is Butlers?

Butlers is an Irish chocolatier with its headquarters in Dublin. It was founded in 1932 by Marion Butler, a talented woman born in India but who made her career in Ireland. Her first chocolate creations “Chez Nous Chocolates” were a big success and put Butlers chocolates on the map.
Marion Butler eventually sold Butlers Chocolates to Seamus Sorensen, which is the same family that still manages Butlers Chocolates until this day. They have expanded the Butlers empire with numerous shops all across Ireland, but also with distributors all over the world.

Nowadays, Butlers Chocolates can also be found in the United States, Canada, China, India, Japan, Africa, New Zealand and Australia.
