We may be confined to our shores for now but that doesn’t mean you can’t go on an epicurean adventure from the comfort of your own home.
Scottish craft drink innovators, The Start-Up Drinks Lab, have created a globally inspired range of gift boxes that allow you to explore small food and drink producers from near and far.
Local Selects enables the discovery of small, authentic and high-quality craftsmanship from the hidden heart of a city by providing an accessible way to explore new products that are the local’s choice.
Never has it been so important to support local and with so many barriers facing small food and drink producers around the world, Local Selects wanted to bring these craft producers to the forefront.
Local Selects plan to launch a new city every couple of months with the first two boxes already available.
Of course, Glasgow is the obvious choice for those craving a local flavour, or if you’re pining for a foreign adventure, Stockholm will inject some Scandinavian spirit into your life.
Each box contains a section of locally produced drinks and snacks from your chosen city – from Inverclyde Gin to Renjer Jerky, to limited edition craft beers and sustainable sweet treats.
Whichever city you choose, you’ll get an authentic range of handpicked items which are often not available outside the city walls.
It’s never been easier to find new tastes you’ll love with all the products featured either born and bred innovators of the city, authentic traditional tastes embedded within its culture, or nationally adored treats popular with the locals of the city.
Each box comes with a limited-edition magazine featuring the stories behind the producers, a rigid gift box and a handwritten note personalised to the recipient – making them a perfect gift for someone who needs a wee pick-me-up!
Karis Johnston, Local Selects Brand Manager says:
“With up to 11 new boxes planned for 2021, I think it’s really exciting to be able to bring together two of the things people love, food & travel. Not only are we providing an exciting high-quality product, but also a high-quality service in researching, sourcing, collating and delivering all these products together to offer a full luxury brand experience.”
