Department store chain Fenwick has launched its first-ever range of food and drink products in time for Christmas.
The retailer has sourced products from growers, producers, bakers, chocolatiers, roasters and distillers across the UK for the 30-strong own-brand range, which is available in stores and online.
Fenwick, which has nine stores, said it would grow the core range next year with the regular introduction of new products.
It includes seven seasonal lines for Christmas, with each in bespoke packaging featuring illustrations from Fenwick’s 2019 artist in residence, Julie Verhoeven, to appeal to the gifting market. Festive whole leaf tea, hand-roasted Christmas coffee, Yorkshire ale chutney, mini mince pies (12-pack), flaky mince pies (four-pack) and spiced clementine gin liqueur make up the Christmas range.
The core range includes: dark chocolate and slim ginger biscuits, milk chocolate caramel biscuits, blonde chocolate toffee biscuits, breakfast Assam whole leaf tea, Earl Grey whole leaf tea, milk drinking chocolate flakes, gourmet mini-mallows, hand-roast arabica coffee, strawberry and Yorkshire rhubarb jam, blackberry and blackcurrant jam, satsuma & Whitby gin marmalade jam, plum gin liqueur, blackberry and ginger gin liqueur, and milk and dark chocolate bars.
Leo Fenwick, head of brand at Fenwick, said: “We have always credited our shoppers with exceptional taste and are delighted to be able to satisfy those tastes with the launch of our Fenwick range.
“We have worked incredibly hard in the curation of the range and have engaged with the finest suppliers in the UK in its creation. Our core range will develop and expand over time with the regular introduction of new products.
“We will then introduce seasonal capsule collections, such as our Christmas collection, during the year. We are very proud of the range we are launching and can’t wait for our customers to try the produce within it.”
