Find that little something different for your friends or family
Owner, Armorel, spent many years working in an office environment before realising her dream of opening Armadeli. Not only does Armorel source and stock a rich and decadent array of well chosen cheeses, charcuterie, delicious accompaniments and wines and spirits, she also searches far and wide for fantastic products to be given as gifts. Or, of course, there’s nothing quite like treating yourself to a little gift once in a while!
From books to gin gift sets, or luxury chocolate products to fondue sets, you can find something for that special gift. It’s always satisfying to find that little something different for your friends or family, and with food and drink a definite love of ours; Armadeli is the perfect choice for a quality gift.
A Member of the Guild of Fine Foods, Armorel is passionate about the welfare of animals and sources from ethical suppliers who share her views. She is more than happy to share her journey and knowledge so far, so that you get the right gift for each occasion or to match your specific preferences.
Mini Fondue and Raclette Sets
Our mini stylish Fondue set would be fantastic fun for a romantic evening. Making a great original gift (along with some well chosen cheeses) this fondue set is perfect for keeping melted cheese, chocolate or sauces warm. Or, if it’s for yourself, how about, popping in a couple of your favourite chocolate bars with some chopped fruit? Pure delight.
For another great gift that is a little bit different, take a look at our mini Raclette set – fantastic for two people to eat together and have a bit of fun! This Raclette comes in a gift box with two pans, spatulas and detachable grilling plate. If it’s a treat for yourself, pop some music on, pour yourself a tasty glass of your favourite wine then, bake and grill your top cheese choice and vegetables – maybe adding some warm crusty bread.
Chutney and Condiment Gift sets
We have some delicious chutney sets that would make fantastic gifts for the cheese lover in your life with a selection of products such as Red Onion Marmalade, Westmorland Chutney and Cumberland Sauce. Of course, Christmas time offers us a wonderful chance to try new chutneys and in the run up to the Festive season, we will be able to offer delicious preserves such as Christmas Chutney, New Year Relish and Cranberry Sauce. All our chutney gifts are presented in simple, sleek packaging or gift boxes.
For anyone with a sweet tooth, our couture jar selection is a beautiful gift or could just grace your breakfast or tea table. With luxury products such as Fruit Marmalade, Vanilla Jam and Lemoncello Curd, you will find the perfect gift for someone who likes the sweeter things in life.
Books make the most wonderful gift, especially when you really think about the person you are buying for. Armorel has selected some fantastic books to sit alongside her quality products. With simple recipes, or full of the origins of food, such as cheese, charcuterie and wine, these books are not just to be put on the kitchen shelf and forgotten. They are books for the recipient (or yourself) to pick up, peruse and be guided though tales of the passion of good food and wine. How about giving a gift of two or three small wrapped cheeses along with Fiona Becket’s ‘Cheese Course’? Fiona guides the reader through the types, uses and versatility of cheeses.
Lick The Spoon Chocolate
A super company, Lick The Spoon, was founded by husband and wife team. Their inspiration comes from a variety of sources – the Bristol Chocolate industry, London hotels and a rusty moped in the South of France! Their desire to create delicious chocolates has led them to having their products enjoyed by two Prime Ministers and members of the Royal Family! Armorel is excited to supply many of their products including their Sea Salt Praline Chocolate Bar, Salted Caramel Milk Chocolate Bar, Pistachio and Sesame Milk Chocolate Bar, Rose Infused Dark Chocolate Crisps and Dark Chocolate Honeycomb. She also stocks their mixed box of chocolates – a decadent choice for a treat for yourself or a gift, or as part of a luxury hamper.
