About Best of Hampshire
Best of Hampshire Gift Hampers are filled with the finest selection of our specially sourced and selected gourmet treats, from artisan and local producers in Hampshire who care as much about good food as we do. We pride ourselves on the fact that all our products have been carefully chosen for their delicious, unique tastes with many of them winning awards.
Our unique Hamper company provides you with the opportunity to purchase a Hamper full of exquisite Hampshire produce but it also gives you the opportunity to finely tune the Hamper to any required tastes…in essence you can choose the individual products you would like included, to ensure your Hamper makes the perfect gift.
Part of the process of choosing which products we would like to feature in our Hampers has involved visiting, sampling and watching these delicious foods being made, using quality and traditional methods resulting in such unique flavours. Hampshire’s excellent climate and landscape plays a huge part in the production of such high-end delicious tasting products. We have a great relationship with our passionate suppliers, many of whom have become close friends. And feel it is important to learn about, and subsequently share their unique stories.
Our amazing Hampers offer a fantastic selection of award winning wines and gins, luxurious jams and chutneys which have been prepared using only the highest quality Hampshire fruit and vegetables, luxurious handmade chocolates, aromatic coffee, honey, oils, dressings and of course not forgetting our renowned craft beer.
Best of Hampshire is proud to supply a number of products produced exclusively for us.

About Sophia Saunders
Best of Hampshire was founded in 2018 by Sophia Saunders; a born and raised Hampshire girl passionate about food. Having grown up in the heart of Hampshire surrounded by friends and family with a strong farming and agricultural heritage, Sophia knows what it takes to produce the finest and best tasting food and drink.
Having graduated with BA Hons degree in International Marketing Management from Bournemouth University she is no stranger to creating something exceptional that is totally unique and introducing it to an ever-competitive market. Sophia works around the clock to ensure that only the very best seasonal and quality products are selected for the Hampers.
Having discovered a gap in the market for bespoke and carefully selected British produce for Hampers and keen to support innovative local food and drink producers, Sophia started to source the finest luxury local produce and ‘Best of Hampshire’ was subsequently born.
As well as being a passionate foodie, Sophia is a true country girl at heart, so it will come as no surprise that horse riding and clay pigeon shooting are the top of the list when it comes to any free time. This is however usually limited due to keeping her two sons, Henry and William, entertained!
