“Our signature Sloe Gin has all the qualities of a classic homemade liqueur. Steeped in the traditional way over a period of months, this award-winning product has rich, aromatic, cherry notes from the sloe, laced with a hint of almond from the stone which gives a full flavour on the palate. Try serving it with champagne on Christmas Day or neat over ice as an after-dinner treat.” – Sloemotion
“Broighter Gold oils are all cold pressed, grown on one type of soil, and one variety of seed, making its taste completely unique. Our chilli oil has a fiery heat, and is full of flavour which makes it great for frying, roasting, marinating or drizzling”. – Broighter Gold
"We created the Ecuador 58% milk chocolate bar as a bespoke offering to Liberty. It is one of my favourites. I love the deep flavours of caramel and fudge. It is indulgent, comforting and offers a little treat for this festive time of year." - Joanna Brennan, Executive Director and Co-Founder of Pump Street Bakery
Forest Road Alcohol Free Hamper
A great option for die-hard foodies, The Forest Road Liberty Print wicker hamper is jam-packed with delectable treats, hand-picked from the Liberty Food Hall. Packed with sea salt caramel truffles and Bramley apple sauce, as well as crumbly oat biscuits and buttery fudge, this condiment-heavy wicker hamper is lined with our Forest Road print - the perfect addition to any indulgent Christmas celebration.
“This piccalilli is the first recipe we ever made as a business. It came about because my husband, Jon kept complaining that he couldn’t find a decent chunky pickle that wasn’t wet mush. We make this recipe with local cider vinegar from Aspalls, and our mix of vegetables are carefully brined before cooking in the mustard sauce on the second day. It’s the perfect accompaniment to a runny scotch egg, a classic cheeseboard or simply with a plate of ham”. – Andre Dang, Managing Director of We Love Man Food
“The Black Garlic ketchup is perfect with fish, meat and is also designed to be used as an ingredient for sauces, soups and casseroles. Umami is the key flavour of Black Garlic, which is created through a long and slow cooking procedure over six weeks, with nothing added other than heat and moisture. Over this time, the harsh heat of the garlic turns to sugar as it caramelises and becomes black and sticky.” - Hawkshead
“The All Butter Oaties have been developed from a sixty-year old recipe, made every week by Frank's mum, in her North Yorkshire farm kitchen. The only difference between the original recipe and this one, is that a top quality butter has been used to replace the margarine that was regularly used by bakers in the ‘50s and ‘60s”. – Frank’s Luxury Biscuits
Strawberry Thief Suitcase Hamper
Stock the cupboards with the finest seasonal produce, brought to you in our Strawberry Thief festive food hamper - crammed with buttery shortbread of Scotland, decadent milk chocolate and Cumbrian jam. It is dressed in our Strawberry Thief print - a perennial Liberty favourite since 1979.
“The Liberty Shortbread recipe has been handed down through Mrs Irving’s family and with just a little tweaking, to allow us to make them in larger batches. Each one is baked from scratch in Castle Douglas, Scotland. Buttery in flavour and crumbly in texture”. - Irvings Bakery
"Rich, malty and robust. This well-balanced and traditional blend of the finest Assam and African teas has been lovingly created in the heart of Somerset, England and is the perfect way to start the day. Best served with a splash of milk". - Kingdom Tea
"Sea Salt Caramel chocolate has become one of the most iconic flavours from Charbonnel et Walker. The perfect balance of sweet and savoury, this delicious chocolate bar is decorated to perfection with a striking heritage peacock print from the Liberty Heritage Collection".
Betsy Suitcase Hamper
The Betsy food hamper is filled with chocolate chip shortbread of Scotland, marzipan-covered fruits and loose leaf tea pyramids. It is dressed in our Betsy print – a very typical Liberty pattern of simplified flowers and berries, drawn with a very fine outline.
“Dark Woods Coffee is an artisan coffee roaster, based in a renovated textile mill in the windswept Pennine Moors. Liberty Dark Blend offers a rich body and a dark, chocolatey flavour with a bitter-tinged strength ”. - Dark Woods
“The secret to our Chocolate Chip Shortbread is using a top knotch butter. We work with a traditional shortbread recipe, and generously mix in drops of deliciously tasty chocolate chips". - Frank’s Luxury Biscuits
"Blackberries and sloes make the perfect autumnal jam pairing. They are two classic wild fruits, both of which grow throughout Britain in hedgerows and woodland and are regularly foraged by home preservers. Their sharp, vibrant flavours, in combination with unrefined cane sugar and the warmth of Sloe Gin, create a wonderful seasonal preserve”. – Rosebud Preserves
