23rd March 2023
The Hamper, a luxury gift that offers an array of discovery to the receiver. What could be packed within? cheeses, chocolates, treats! We’re delving into the finest items of Scotland, and thanks to Clan Artisan, who have sourced these luxuries and packaged them up within hampers, we can enjoy them from our homes in England with a bottle of English Bubbly.
From a birthday gift, a Valentine’s Day surprise, or a corporate reward, it serves many purposes and offers such joy, so let’s delve into the Scottish Artisan Hamper from Clan Artisan.
Run by a husband and wife team, Susanna Busi Jacobsohn & Douglas Jacobsohn, Busi Jacobsohn is located in The Blackdown Hills along the Somerset-Devon border in southwestern England.

Clan Artisan has searched every far corner of Scotland to find the luxury products that truly make them proud of their Scottish roots.
They try to buy directly from each of the small businesses they work with, so with each gift box purchased, it helps to support the small independent businesses throughout Scotland.
The company was founded by and is run by two Jens. Jen McEwan and Jen Tervit, launching back in 2018, it was Jen M and her business partner at the time, Karen, who came up with the idea to gather artisan producers from Scotland and showcase them in luxury gift boxes.
The Damn Fine Cheese Company – Black Gold & English Fizz – “Cleanses the palate, cutting down the maturity, and leaving the divine flavours of the black gold, with notes of soft fizzy citrus on the palate.”
The Damn Fine Cheese Company – Mature & English Fizz- “Soft citrus is absorbed by the mature cheddar, which is on the milder side, leaving a blend that works with or without the sparkling wine.”
