Devon Hampers and Salcombe Distilling Co. have joined forces in an exciting new collaboration between the two leading West Country businesses.

Devon Hampers will provide fulfilment for Salcombe Distilling Co.’s corporate and wholesale customers, supplying, packing and distributing its hampers.

Salcombe Distilling Co. is behind the multi-award winning brands Salcombe Gin and New London Light, with their exceptional and extremely popular products distilled and crafted at their waterside distillery on Island Street, Salcombe.

Devon Hampers already operates a thriving online hamper business.  Launched in 2014 by Adam Fox-Edwards, a former Squadron Leader with the RAF, the company has delivered over 200,000 hampers and its past clients include Lloyds Bank, St James’ Place Wealth Management and Chanel.

In 2020, Devon Hampers moved to new premises at Lifton, where a 10,000 sq ft warehouse has dramatically increased capacity.  It is now able to offer a comprehensive service for fulfilment from a single logistics centre including for fresh produce, and with its ability to leverage its purchasing power, it can offer very competitive fulfilment rates.

Adam Fox-Edwards says:

“We are delighted to be working with Salcombe Distilling Co. enabling them to enhance their customer offering and significantly boost sales.  We hold the same values and have the same passion for the best of Devon and want to share it with the rest of the UK.  The taste and quality of Salcombe Gin coupled with our reputation for first class delivery at Devon Hampers means we are well matched partners.

Salcombe Distilling Co.’s, co-founder, Howard Davies adds:

“Our beautiful Salcombe Gin hampers are one of the most coveted luxury gifts during the festive season, so we wanted to ensure a local Devon-based company was also benefiting from the desirability of these products. We’re thrilled to be working with Devon Hampers as both our fulfilment partner and a valued retailer, their experience and passion for local products is highly admirable.”

Devon Hampers will undertake all the steps from receiving orders to placing the finished hampers in the hands of customers, significantly reducing the workload of businesses like Salcombe Distilling Co. who are extremely busy with high customer demand for their beautiful gins and gift sets in the run up to Christmas.

Mr Fox-Edwards, said:

“A significant increase in e-commerce orders for bulky items can provide a challenge to craft producers including warehousing and shipping, we can handle a large number of orders within a very short time, supporting businesses so that they can continue to grow.”

Devon Hampers already provides fulfilment for fast growing food and drink producers including Floreat – low alcohol, botanical wine and Flapjackery – a west Devon-based business that specialises in flapjacks.
