Harrods heralds the start of the Christmas season with its gift hampers that has become a sort of an annual tradition at the iconic Knightsbridge department store. This year’s premium gift hamper, The Decadence’ brings together some of the world’s most expensive food and drinks, totaling a worth of £20,000 (around $31,000).
The high-end department store has included a wealth of 67 different items in the hamper, from the selection of top-tier cheese to the range of exclusive pantry and fresh food items. There are 10 pantry items in total and include a decorative Christmas cake, savory crackers, Christmas pudding, variety of jams and biscuits.
Then, of course, there are confectioneries such as Petit Fours Assortments, Bonieri Chocolate and Kahve Dünyasi Milk Chocolate Coated Pistachio Turkish Delight. The hamper includes 17 fresh food items such as fresh seasonal fruits, cheeses, Mortadella with Black Truffle, Smoked Duck Breast, caviar and Ibérico Ham Maestro Cortador.
The luxury hamper offers a judicious curation of wines, champagnes and spirits, including Château La Mission Haut-Brion 2007 Pessac-Léognan, Vega-Sicilia “Unico” Gran Reserva 1998 Colgin Cellars, IX Estate 2009 Napa Valley, Perrier-Jouët; Belle époque Blanc de Blancs Brut Millesime 2002 Champagne and Courvoisier Initiale Extra Cognac France.
The Decadence hamper was made available in September for pre-order. The delightful treats come inside two leather trunks.
