– Fortnum & Mason partners with EJ Churchill to create a hamper for the hunting season –

The grouse might have been few and far between this month, but the wider game season is set to kick off in earnest from September. To celebrate the start of the season, Fortnum & Mason has teamed with eminent English gun makers and shooting experts EJ Churchill to create a limited edition shooting themed hamper. An ideal accompaniment for a long day’s shoot, or a great gift for a host following a successful day in the fields, the Gamekeeper hamper contains a number of high quality shooting accessories – and a carefully edited supply of the finest food and drink.

Nestled among the straw in one of Fortnum & Mason’s 19-inch signature wicker baskets is a pair of luxurious EJ Churchill shooting socks, and a stylish and robust 8oz Hunter Flask. From Fortnum & Mason, there’s a selection of tasty treats for hungry hunters, including a Gamekeepers fruitcake, a weighty box of shortbread fingers and a dark chocolate selection box. There’s preserves too, fine tea and coffee, and of course, a number of different tipples. Included within the bountiful basket are bottles of Sipsmith Sloe Gin and Late Bottled Vintage Port. 

The Gamekeeper hamper costs £250.00. It is available to order from Fortnum & Mason from September 1, either via telephone, 020 7734 8040 or online, www.fortnumandmason.com.  A larger hamper, the Shooting Party, is also available. It contains additional Fortnum & Mason and EJ Churchill products and retails at £500.00.
