about the artisan general store

I decided to start the artisan general store further to what seemed like a lifetime in the corporate sector. 


Just like many of us, for me, Friday 6pm always signified the start of a joyous nirvana of good food, drink and family. After many years of this cycle, I realised that I needed more, I wanted every day to incorporate great food and drink…and so the artisan general store was born.


I own the company, I personally try every product, and only those that are truly delicious make it onto the site. I work directly with the artisan producers, all of whom have a deep passion for the products they make, and the traditional way in which they are made.


Whilst the above route isn’t the quickest way to fill a store with products, it does mean that you can always be assured of product quality.


Delivery is another area that the artisan general store has looked at closely. I didn’t want a wonderful shopping experience to be lost through a poor delivery experience. 


If you live within our in-house delivery area, your items will be delivered by one of our mobile shopkeepers (often myself) in the world’s most fuel-efficient* hybrid sub SUV. 


We will unpack your shopping and take the time to answer any questions you might have with regard your order etc. If you live outside of our in-house delivery area, your items will be delivered by a carefully selected, carbon neutral, delivery company who will also provide a one-hour delivery window with full driver tracking.


So, there you have it, a store built on love, that genuinely puts the artisan and the customer at the forefront of everything it does. I hope you enjoy shopping with us. If we don’t have what you want, please let us know and we will do our best to source it for you.


Over the coming months we will also be launching our ‘in-home’ personalised artisan tasting experiences and a range of desserts & confectionary (including a stunning clotted cream fudge). 


Happy shopping.
