Clare Gault, founder of Clare’s Preserves, is the epitome of an artisan, producing a stunning array of multi award winning marmalades, jams, jellies, chutneys and relishes.
Based in the foothills of Dartmoor, all products are handmade by Clare in small batches, using traditional open pot methods.
Quality and provenance are the driving forces behind all aspects of the business, from ingredients through to the packaging used. Clare knows the best ingredients make amazing preserves and ensures they are carefully sourced, using local producers wherever possible: honey from Dartmoor beekeepers, gin from Exmoor’s small batch distillery Wicked Wolf, organic cider vinegar from Farrant’s Farm in Dunsford.
Clare’s preserves has also been wowing food industry judges from around the country since they started and to date they have received 45 coveted awards.
Chilli aficionados get pretty passionate about their hot sauce, ensuring that it contains just the right kind of chilli for each application. A true chilli fan will also tell you that it should never be just about heat; it's about a difference in smell and taste, some being sweeter, some fruitier, some with a dusky depth of flavour.
As hot sauce lovers ourselves, we are proud to launch our range of chilli hampers. There are four hampers available, with each focused on a different heat intensity to ensure that there is a hamper for all palates.
So, not only can you buy a hamper perfect for your palate (or the palate of a loved one), you can also save money and get a free jar of Otter Vale Chutney into the bargain!
