Sligo Food Trail launch new Christmas hampers
Brand new from Sligo Food Trail are two fabulous Christmas hampers, The Deluxe Sligo Food Trail Hamper and The Taste of Sligo Food Trail Hamper, showcasing the very best from the north west. It’s like a tasting tour around the county, a combination of delicious tastes and flavours with sweets, savouries and more besides. A limited number of signature Sligo Food Trail hessian bags are a complimentary gift with the first Deluxe hamper orders.
“We’re very proud of our new hampers, and of the exceptional quality of the products all from Sligo”, said Marie Casserly, Chair Sligo Food Trail, “It’s wonderful to see Sligo Food Trail members working together to create these gorgeous Christmas gifts”.
As the old adage says “there’s eating and drinking in it”. In fact, there’s reading in the Deluxe Sligo Food Hamper too – with a copy of seaweed queen Prannie Rhatigan’s “Irish Seaweed Christmas Kitchen”. Most of the goodies will be enjoyed immediately, but the elegant Lough Gill Brewery beer glass, the charming Sligo Oyster Experience candle, a Yeats print from WB’s Coffee House and the book will all find permanent use in your home. A reminder to buy again next year perhaps?
Sweet treats include handmade chocolates by award winning chef Alan Fitzmaurice of the Glasshouse Hotel alongside sweets from Mammy Johnston’s better known for their world beating ice creams and sorbets. “Chocolate making is my passion”, enthused Alan Fitzmaurice, “I’ve perfected my techniques over the past few years and I really hope everyone enjoys the results over Christmas”.
The enticingly named, ruby coloured ‘Christmas Cordial’, comes from the lovely folks at Murson’s Farm as does local Apple Juice, chutney and preserve. Along with aromatic coffee from Carrow Coffee and handmade Granola from WB’s, that’s Christmas breakfast done and dusted. A Christmas Pudding from The Gourmet Parlour and some craft beer from Lough Gill Brewery complete the festive hamper.
The Taste of Sligo Food Trail Hamper features a smaller selection of the above products. Both hampers can be ordered through the website www.sligofoodtrail.ie .The cost is €150 for The Deluxe Sligo Food Trail Hamper and €65 for The Taste of Sligo Food Trail Hamper. Courier delivery is available within Ireland or orders can be picked up from WB’s Coffee House in Sligo Town or Murson’s Farm in Grange.
That’s Christmas all wrapped up with a celebration of Sligo food – hamper style.
