Exciting festive news; the Claridge’s Christmas hampers have arrived. For the first time in its 151-year history, the Mayfair hotel has created a series of festive hampers, so you can enjoy a slice of London luxury at home.
The hampers promise to be packed with gastronomic treats from the classic Claridge’s Christmas pudding to wax sealed bottles of aged Negroni from the Fumoir.
‘For so many years our guests have been asking us to guide them on festive ingredients and open up our secret address book, so this year we have carefully hand-picked some of our true favourites, and hopefully brought a little extra Claridge’s Christmas cheer!’ – Executive Chef Martyn Nail
A Slice of London Luxury
The Claridge’s Christmas hampers will be presented in handmade willow baskets with the distinctive Claridge’s livery and chevron art deco details, and will be available in three sizes. The larger hamper sizes will go behind food and drink treats and recreate the Claridge’s experience at home for you. In these larger hampers you will find the distinctive Fornasetti candles that scent the hotel lobby, a set of Claridge’s bone china mugs inspired the art deco design and a signature Claridge’s teddy bear in full bellboy uniform.
The culinary treats include signature vanilla shortbread biscuits, the homemade raspberry and rose jam served on scones in the Foyer, the beloved Dundee cake steeped in Scotch Whisky and ultimate olives to be served with a chilled bottle of Sancerre.
