Firetree creates its blends of chocolate from cocoa trees grown in volcanic soil on the remote islands of the southern Pacific and Oceania.
The brand has sustainability and ethical practice at its heart. Firetree deals with cocoa farmers directly, paying a substantial premium above the market rate. This means farmers can commit to high agricultural standards.

Quicke’s Associate Level course is a great option for anyone looking to begin their cheese appreciation journey. Based in Devon, the Quicke family farm has been crafting cheese for almost 500 years, and is renowned for its award-winning clothbound cheddar.

Gift premium extra virgin olive oil
Extra virgin olive oil is the healthiest and highest-quality olive oil available. This is because the oil is extracted without the use of high heat or chemical solvents, which can tarnish its precious glow-giving nutrients.
We particularly love the olive oil made by The Governor. The ideal Christmas gift for foodies, The Governor produces this premium extra virgin olive oil naturally without using chemicals.
The olives are picked from trees ranging from 100 to 500 years, with the oil being cold pressed within hours at a low temperature to maintain the quality of the oil.

This gift will give food lovers the chance to create the perfect festive rum with flavours including toasted coconut, estate coffee, citrus and more. Infuse spices alone or mix with others to create countless combinations.
