Irish Gourmet's Christmas Stock Has Arrived

Irish Gourmet are busy bees at Christmas time. We have to be so organised and make sure that the Christmas stock is ordered and delivered at the correct time, we also need to pre-pack non-perishable Christmas Gift Hampers to save time during the last few weeks of December, which is one of our busiest times of the year. 

This year we have been so organised we placed an order for our Christmas Jams & Chutneys in the beginning of 2014. It is a year long process to receive our order because our supplier is a microproducer who picks the fruit themselves in the summer and then spends the autumn months making it in small batches of 20. 

Our organic smoked salmon is so fresh that the earliest it can be delivered is the 17th December to ensure that it has an after Christmas shelf life. Our baked goods including mince pies and Christmas pudding are being made in small batches and delivered weekly to ensure that the stay fresh for our baskets. The baked goods have to come in early because mince pies are not just for Christmas, people want them in their hampers from November. 

The cheese is made fresh and delivered in stages to ensure ultimate freshness. We are the freshest Hamper company.  Christmas puddings in late October and that was the start of it, since then we have had lovely Christmas food pouring in.

You can find baskets full of this delicious food at our Christmas Gift Hampers page.
