Arnie is the man who has it all, and now we have the hamper that has it all. Yes- It’s that time of year again where a delicately decided paired cheese hamper is simply indispensable (at least we think so). This year our cheesy elves have been going crackers, perfecting the Christmas hamper to end all Christmas hampers. Containing three unique cheeses - a Camembert-style Tunworth, a feta-like Truffle Graceburn and a velvety sheep's milk Sheep Rustler, these are finely matched with some beautiful additions. Salted almonds, sun-dried tomatoes and Cornichons from Borough Market are there to tickle your tastebuds, with a divine Fennel and White Pepper Salami to accompany. To top it all off, you get seeded sourdough flatbreads and raw borage honey, ideal for drizzling. The perfect assortment, for the seamless Christmas treat. Hamper La Vista, Baby.

The Perfect Pairings

The cheeses

Three artisan British cheeses

More

Truffle Graceburn - Superbly soft and rich, and of course, British, this is a decadent jar of deliciousness. Based on a persian feta recipe and infused with black truffles.


Tunworth - Hampshire Cheese's- distinctly British, have taken on a classic that is rich, creamy, buttery and smooth, but with a complexity that is a pleasant cabbage-style bitterness. It is finished with a subtle earthy and mushroomy aromas that just fills your mouth.


Sheep Rustler - A semi-hard sheep's milk cheese with a moreish texture and a hint of nutty caramel sweetness. It's washed in brine which gives Sheep Rustler its colourful orange/brown rind with natural mould spots. We're so obsessed with it and we're constantly off to rustle up some Sheep to get our hands on some more.
