At the heart of these Hampers lie authentic, family-owned and produced products. Each Chilled Gift Hamper is filled with the best Irish produced food on the island, sourced from small micro-producers who are true artisans of their trade. This dedication ensures that every item within carries the genuine flavours of Ireland, no matter where in the world you are.
Unlike many other companies, we prioritise providing high-quality food over the standard inclusion of alcohol or wine. We believe that the true spirit of Irish tradition is best encapsulated in the richness of its culinary offerings. Therefore, when you gift an Irish Gourmet Hamper, you’re not just offering products; you’re gifting a piece of Ireland’s heart and soul.
Each Hamper boasts full-sized products, with no sample-sized foods included. This ensures that every bite is an experience worthy of the occasion. From the moment they open their Gift, they’ll be greeted with a bounty of authentic Irish flavours. Carefully designed to ignite the senses.
Now, let’s delve into the exquisite selection that graces our Fresh Christmas Hampers.
In a quiet corner of Ireland, it began with a passionate fisherman, Anthony Cresswell’s father. He took the salmon he and his friends caught in the local rivers and turned them into something extraordinary. Through trial and error, those methods were perfected and are still in use today. The word spread, and soon, a thriving business was born.
Back in the early 1980’s, Anthony dipped his toes into the world of wine, but as he lent a hand to his father’s smoking venture, he saw a greater potential in Salmon. Therefore, in 1988, Ummera Smoked Products came to life.
Their smoke house, standing tall for 26 years now is just a stone’s throw away from Timoleague by the Argideen River in Cork. But what sets them apart? While others dry cure, they opt for a wet process. Their special blend includes sea salt from Portugal, a touch of the EU, and organic raw cane sugar Costa Rica. Plenty of water and oak sawdust are then added to ensure an even and slow burn, leaving the salmon with an exquisite flavour.
The awards received from Paris and the Great Taste Awards in the UK are proof of their dedication and craftsmanship. They’ve truly mastered the art of smoking salmon.
Next, we present air-dried lamb and beef from McGeough’s of Connemara. This family-owned establishment has perfected the art of preserving meats, creating an experience that celebrates Irish history. The succulent ham from Brady’s Family adds a touch of tradition to our Hampers. With a legacy spanning generation, their carefully cured ham showcases the appeal of time-honoured techniques. In addition to this, we include wax-covered cheese produced by Bandon Vale. Crafted with precision and care, their cheese embodies the rich and creamy dairy made in Ireland.
With every product in our Hampers, we aspire to offer an authentic taste of Ireland. We believe that the best Gifts are those that evoke emotions and create lasting memories, and our Fresh Christmas Hampers are designed with that belief at their core.
