Cotswold Classics: Local Food Hampers

If you want to support local businesses, we’ve got a delicious way you can do it! We’re shining the spotlight on some of our Cotswold-based suppliers and their delectable creations, from cheeses and chutneys to cakes and ciders. These local produce hampers pair up some of Cotswolds finest, with many featuring multiple foods from across the region. Ready to take a tasty tour of the area?


Cotswold Cheeses

Simon Weaver Organic is run by a three-generation farming family in the Cotswolds. Emphasis is on traditional methods, high standards of animal welfare and environmentally conscious practices. Their rich and creamy brie is the quintessential taste of a classic English picnic, pairing perfectly with apple slices or as part of a ploughman’s lunch. We’ve incorporated it into our Highgrove Hamper with Moet Champagne, making it a local produce hamper that’s fit for the royal family. It’s paired with stilton, cheddar and blue cheeses and accompanied by chutneys, biscuits, crisps and a variety of premium quality meats. Polish it off with Original English Shortbread, fruit cake, chocolate pudding and more for a truly traditional feast.


Locally Baked Shortbreads

Four Angels is an award-winning bakery that creates handmade treats in the heart of the Cotswolds. These brilliant bakers have come up with a variety of delicious cakes and biscuits, with their classic English shortbread made with all butter for a rich and indulgent flavour. It makes the perfect addition to a local food hamper, traditional afternoon tea or a sturdy biscuit for dipping in your tea. Our Tea Lover’s Gift Set features their shortbread alongside their moreish double chocolate biscuits and also adds in slab cake and strawberry jam for good measure. It even comes with a “Keep Calm and Drink Tea” mug and the tea to put in it – and you can’t get much more classic than that!


Gourmet Cotswold Loaf Cake

The clue is in the name with The Cotswold Gourmet. This is a range of premium desserts that draw on local heritage and traditional recipes. The Fruit and Nut Loaf Cake with Marzipan Star makes a mouth-watering sweet treat to go with a cup of tea or a glass of bubbly and feels like a real treat. We’ve paired it with Stornoway’s Caramel Butter Shortbread and a lemon sponge steamed pudding in our elegant Ascot Hamper with Prosecco. It’s balanced by savoury goodies including cheese straws, sea-salt crisps and roasted cashews and complemented by a selection of fine wines, making it the perfect local Christmas hamper.


Severn Valley Smoked Salmon

Fish doesn’t get much fresher than plucked straight from the banks of the River Severn. Severn & Wye is a family-run business that caters to true foodies and even runs a cookery school to protect the future of local fishing. Their smoked salmon has been hand-prepared using traditional methods to bring out the natural flavours. We’ve paired it with mature cheddars and brie, chutney and porcini crackers in our local Pembroke Hamper with Prosecco while adding chocolate biscuits and luxury chocolates to polish it off.


Local Distilled Gin

This is one for the G&T-lovers! Cotswolds Distillery runs the first, full-scale distillery in the Cotswolds and produces a premium range of whiskies, gins and liqueurs while supporting the local community. Their gin uses traditional methods and equipment and carefully selected botanicals including coriander seed, lavender, bay leaf and cardamom. It’s the centrepiece of our Cotswold Gin & Tonic Indulgence Hamper and comes with premium tonic water and even gin-and-tonic-flavoured popcorn. There’s also cheese twists and chutneys, olives, cakes and coffee to complete the selection.


If you want to put a festive twist on the gift, try the Festive Surprise Hamper with Gin & Tonic, a local Christmas hamper which comes with a Christmas pudding in amongst the goodies. It’s also paired with the distillery’s Single Malt Whisky in our Regency Feast Hamper with Bollinger Champagne alongside a selection of wines, savoury snacks and biscuits, truffles and tarts.


Cotswold & Orchard Pig Cider

We’re celebrating great Cotswold cider with two leaders in the field – Cotswold Cider and Orchard Pig. These local breweries are making the most of local apples with crisp, refreshing and distinctive flavours that embrace their heritage. Orchard Pig ensures they have vegan-friendly options with the emphasis on the fruit rather than the bubbles. For this local produce hamper, we’ve chosen their tangy Reveller Cider and paired it with a selection of sweet and savoury treats in our Cotswold Hamper with Cider. Oatcakes and marmalade, crisps, pastry twists and peanuts are balanced by luxury shortbread and classic chocolates.


Cottage Delight Chutney

Going strong since the 70s, Cottage Delight does traditional food with time-tested tastes. This family-run business started with butter fudge and has since branched out to chutneys, jams, sauces and more, all created in the heart of the Staffordshire Moorlands. Their Caramelised Onion Chutney uses muscovado sugar and oak-aged balsamic vinegar to create it’s deep and rich flavour. It’s perfect for pairing with strong cheeses and we’ve matched it with Organic Cotswold Brie and mature cheddar in our Trafalgar Hamper with Alcohol-Free Pressé. We’ve also added their Strawberry Extra Jam and Classic Orange Marmalade as well as oatcakes, peanuts, shortbread and mint chocolates.
