Start with our rather fabulous English 'bubbles' - an elegant, fresh and exciting sparkling drink, grown on land once owned by Shakespeare's family. Enjoy it on its own or fix yourself an English version of a Kir-Royal-with-a-twist by pairing it with the unique Blueberry 'Eiswein' from Blue Aurora. This is true food waste management: the undersized berries from the fruit farm are pressed when frozen and distilled into this smooth velvety, yet not oversweet Christmas drink.
Moving onto the grazing table, we have matched Simon Weaver's creamy fresh-tasting organic Cotswold brie with an un-pressed naturally-rinded blue from Fowler's, Britain's oldest cheesemakers. Munch away on some true 'taste of Christmas' toasts with plum & date for a touch of sweetness, and slice some beechwood-smoked duck breast onto the toasts for a canape topped with the spiced plum chutney from the lovely Sarah at Tregunter. This chutney has been batch-made by hand since September to mature in time for Christmas! Also try one of our favourite combos - honey and blue cheese. Yes really: the tangy taste of the blue vein with the sweetness of the natural honey is an absolute winner. And Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without smoked salmon, so we have included the best. From Macneil's in Worcestershire, this is beechwood-smoked to their own recipe, light, smoot in flavour and sliced Scandinavian-style.
What better way to complete your mini Christmas feast than with chocolate. Joe Vaughan is one very talented young man, a professional chocolatier since he was 16. Now at the grand old age of 21, he makes the most mouth-watering chocolates we have tasted in a long time from his small high street shop in the charming village of Knowle. We have chosen his cute and seasonal mince pie chocolates, perfectly formed chocolate shells with mince meat, milk chocolate ganache and a white chocolate topping with a dusting of icing sugar. They're complemented by his Christmas Collection: inspired and beautifully presented, with individual flavours such as Spice Orange, Cranberry & Cherry, Christmas Pudding, Gingerbread and Tangerine Dream.
The contents of the box will last to Christmas Day, but some items will need refrigerating upon arrival.
