Baxter’s, the legendary moray eel food maker, is launching its first luxury Christmas basket focused on small Scottish brands.
Products in the basket include Wild Hearth Bakery’s sourdough whiskey stollen bread, Clootie McToot’s clotie dumpling kit, and Kinalba cashmere socks.
Kinloch Anderson offers tartan crackers, Highland Chocolatiers offers sweet treats, and Speyside’s Glen Lynn Distillery produces limited-edition gins.
Starting at £340, the nine baskets also include limited edition jams, chutneys and preserves from the company’s Audrey Baxter Signature range.
The latest range marks Baxter’s entry into the luxury basket market and is a step up from previous selections.
“Our team has scoured the nooks and crannies of Scotland to find the most premium and coveted products and experiences. It makes a real difference to our smaller suppliers in Scotland,” said Matthew. Bending, one of Baxter’s directors.
Argyll Coffee Roasters is supplying 10,000 cans for the baskets and cash from the contract can be used to create new designs.
Eve MacFarlane, founder of Argyll Coffee Roasters, said:
“Not only has this allowed us to increase production, but it has also given us the opportunity to experiment with new sustainable packaging, giving us a great platform to spread the brand.”
Basket’s only offerings that are not Scottish are family wines from France and Italy.
