Mishka Siberian Honey
Mishka Honeys are from Siberia’s Altai Mountains, where for just a few months a year the blanket of snow retreats and the land is bathed in glorious sunshine. Fields and forests burst into life with blossom, welcoming the Siberian bees that work tirelessly to collect the precious nectar. Mishka means little little bear in Russian, and they are a common sight in this sparsely populated rural region of Siberia, where the residents live in harmony with brown these bears.
Ozi Lala Levantine Kitchen
Ozi Lala sauces, harissa and spices bring the lush, colourful smells and flavours of the Levant to your food. These flavour bombs blew us away when we first tried them. They say that you only really get to know a man once you’ve eaten his food, and with the flavour bombs delivered by Ozi Lala’s sauces, harissas and spice mixes you certainly get to know a lot about their colourful creator, Founder and all round fabulous guy, Ozi.
Blackthorn Scottish Sea Salt
Blackthorn Sea Salt produce sea salt flakes from 100% Scottish West Coast sea water; no adding, no seeding, no bleaching, just pure Scottish sea salt, meaning that when you taste Blackthorn Salt you taste nature – the sea, the winds and the thorns. Their specially constructed graduation tower packed with blackthorn branches gives the salt a slightly off white colour and, we believe, adds something distinct to its taste.
