Food + Drink Gift Ideas

Stuck for what to treat your dear mum to this Mother’s Day (on Sunday 6th March…yes, this is your official reminder)?

Maybe she’s been dropping hints you haven’t even noticed. Allow us to present our guide to getting it right – according to what she gets up to in her spare time…


Most likely to say:

Soufflés, tough? You should try macarons…


The Home Baking Hamper

Foodie mums will adore the endless culinary possibilities of our Home Baking Hamper – but before she breaks out her pestle and mortar, treat her to a special Mother’s Day breakfast in bed (a couple of slices of toast with a slick of salted caramel and peanut spread should do it).

As she’s nibbling, have her pick a page from our cocoa opus, A New Way of Cooking with Chocolate, and treat her to a truly special dinner – we’re thinking pulled pork pie or some warm, rich choc au vin.

And if you’ve been looking for a new way to spend some quality time together, it’s impossible not to bond over a homemade batch of truffle doughnuts. Just saying…

Hamper: £65
Cookbook: £20


Most likely to say:

I’m getting oak and red berries… is this the ’75?


Salted Caramel Cocoa Vodka
Something she can break out to impress dinner-party guests: small-batch English vodka infused with salted caramel and cocoa.

Not too sweet, with an edge of Maldon Sea Salt and caramel, this one’s best-served chilled – but the real talking point is the whole cocoa bean from our estate inside each bottle. A real show-stopper this Mother’s Day!

Cocoa Gin
A Great Taste Award-winner 2014 made by artisans using copper-pot stills, our crisp English dry gin is for devotees with an adventurous side.

Mum will detect notes of our Saint Lucian Estate thanks to the peppery roasted cocoa shells and rich, creamy macadamia nuts along with flavours of juniper, lemon, coriander, mineola, and angelica.


Most likely to say:

Ooh, you can really taste the Ghanaian cocoa.
