Everyone loves a gift! Whether it’s for yourself, or just the joy of giving to others, whilst looking after our wonderful planet too! Reduce, re-use, recycle, whilst enjoying the contents, is at the heart of our Gift Boxes!

After over 30 successful years in the Hospitality Industry, Emily & Geoff Metcalf are the founders and Co-owners of the Talbot Collection. A keen eye for detail and quality is central to what we do. At the heart of our Talbot Collection gift boxes is our exclusive range of Signature glassware.

Beautifully crafted glasses form the basis of our gift boxes, which means you can enjoy them again and again, long after the box has gone.

With a strong eye on our carbon footprint, we’ve sourced what we believe to be the finest ingredients for our Gift Boxes.

Our gin is from WhataHoot, an artisan distillery based in Kings Lynn, within the beautiful County of Norfolk, from where we are based. Not only do they make our Talbot Tipple for us, they also make the legendry Sandringham Gin for the Royal Estates. 

Our Whiskies come from The English Whisky Company, England’s oldest distillery and it’s on our doorstep. St George’s Distillery is perfectly suited to whisky production, with the county of Norfolk being one of the world’s finest barley growing regions, coupled with the Breckland aquifer which can be found 50ft beneath the distillery providing a plentiful supply of crystal clear water.

With surprisingly few Rums actually made in England we were thrilled to find The Norfolk Spirit Company who not only flavour their Rums but also make their superior base rum themselves, creating a unique product that is firmly rooted in Norfolk, with the result being a drink that doesn’t burn when drunk and leaves you with a sense of warmth….. when you can’t have a hug have a Rum!

The mixers and tonics come from Franklin & Sons who use British sugar along with local fruit, roots and herbs to ensure they support British agriculture where possible.

Our crisps are provided by Two Farmers, a Herefordshire based company who grow their own potatoes and use 100% compostable packaging for their products. There are vegetarian and vegan options too so no-one is left out.

Gather & Feast, another East Anglian based company, provide us with the delicious Chocolate Brownies and Lemon Drizzle Cake. They bake them themselves and wrap them in brown paper and string, before they go in the box for you to enjoy.

Norfolk has provided us with the inspiration for our Gift Boxes, and we hope they capture the magic and beauty of our County, and bring the same joy to you and your loved ones as they do to us.
