For many, a visit to the high-end London department store is the epitome of Christmas. Here’s a glimpse of what will be on offer this festive season.

Magnificent Christmas Pudding
Plum is the star of Fortnum’s new Magnificent Christmas Pudding, a twist on its classic St James Pudding. Presented in a ceramic bowl, the pudding features Damson gin-soaked fruit and a plum jam centre, and is topped with Marcona almonds, cherries and a glazing of yet more plum jam.
Whether raising a toast on Christmas Day or seeing in the new year with some bubbly, those avoiding alcohol now have another interesting alternative to champagne. The famous tea retailer has bottled a delicate blend of organic teas to create this sparkling soft drink, which gives notes of lemongrass, mint, Darjeeling and jasmine.
Feasting Advent Calendar
The countdown to Christmas just got gourmet. From preserves to prosecco, Fortnum’s new advent calendar – decorated with illustrations from the retailer’s cookbook – provides a selection of treats, tipples and accompaniments.
Liqueur Mince Pie Medley
Fortnum’s has put a boozy spin on its finest buttery mince pies this year. The fruity mincemeat in each pie is flavoured with either tart blackcurrant cassis, spiced honey vodka, Pusser’s Navy Rum or cherry ripe liqueur.
Dark Chocolate Caviar
Caviar connoisseurs (with a sweet tooth) can try something different this Christmas: Dark Chocolate Caviar. Designed to look like fish roe, the pearls of dark chocolate are made from Acticoa, a type of cocoa high in antioxidants.
Fortnum’s is building on the sell-out success of last year’s Gluten Free hamper by offering another free-from feast this Christmas. Created after high customer demand, the Vegan Hamper features wine, sherry, tea, cake and more.
Truffled Smoked Salmon Royal Fillet
Nothing says Christmas breakfast quite like smoked salmon, and Fortnum’s has upgraded its usual offering (pictured) for 2019. The retailer has infused the prime cut of salmon with truffle and left it whole, to be sliced to consumers’ desired thickness at home.
Caviar Tasting Collection
Shoppers looking for a decadent addition to their festive breakfast or canapés should look no further than Fortnum’s Caviar Quartet. Celebrating the best of the store’s extensive caviar range, the tin contains Golden Oscietra, Oscietra, Platinum and Beluga varieties.
Dark Chocolate Orange & Cognac Dragees
With their orange-flavoured dark chocolate shell and filling of single-estate Folle Blanche Cognac VSOP, these liqueur chocolates would make a fine stocking filler for any brandy lover.
Speculaas Sandwich Biscuits
Presented in a signature F&M biscuit tin, the treats comprise of two crisp Dutch Speculaas biscuits flavoured with ginger, nutmeg, cloves and cinnamon, sandwiched together with dark chocolate and topped with crystallised ginger.
