Frequently Asked Questions

We want you to know that when you order from Taste of Bath, you can have total confidence in our delivery of your order. That’s why we have a special section just for Delivery FAQs.

Taste of Bath have been awarded Bath’s Best Business Service for a reason! We treat all of our customers, business and retail alike, with the utmost care and respect. Business customers will find all their queries answered in our dedicated Business FAQs here.

Our Taste of Bath family is made up of 35 independent, artisan producers, all of whom are based within 25 miles of Bath. You can find out more about all our brilliant producers here

We offer three different packaging options if you choose to create your own hamper…

Branded cardboard box (£1)

Our branded cardboard box is our low-cost option, but we’ve put a lot of effort into making sure it’s also a beautiful choice for a gift. It features lots of lovely little details, like an amazing illustrated map of Bath on the bottom, and Taste of Bath printed ‘wallpaper’ inside. There's also a built-in seal strip to make sure your goodies are safe & sound while they're travelling, and eliminate the need for any ugly tape on the box, so your gift will arrive in tip top condition and looking fab! Hang on, wasn’t the cardboard box option free before? Yes – but we’ve given our cardboard boxes a serious upgrade to make sure they’re fit for purpose whilst looking gorgeous, which means we now need to charge just £1 per box.

Signature gift box (£15)

To make our signature gift boxes extra special, we tie each one with a beautiful satin ribbon and hand write your personal message on a luggage tag. It’s the perfect upgrade if you really want to surprise and delight the lucky recipient!

Handmade English Apple Crate (£40)

Handmade by Jarrod and his team in North Lincolnshire, these gorgeous English apple crates are a gift in themselves! Over the years we’ve seen them reused as coffee tables, planters, toy boxes and more…

No – we’ll email you confirmation of your purchase with payment information, but we won’t include any payment information in the package. We know you’ll often be sending our hampers as gifts and won’t want the recipient to see this info!

There’s nothing worse than someone seeing the price or description of something you’ve bought them! As mentioned above, we never include any order or price information within a gift, and the gifts themselves are not labelled with their names as they appear on the website. So if you want to buy your client a ‘Small Gift Hamper’ or send Uncle Barry ‘The Perfect Ladies Gift’, they’ll never know… it’s all about sending the right thing 😊

VAT on food and drink is a really complex area. We are a VAT-registered business, which means we do need to charge VAT on our products and services. As a rule, VAT is payable on all delivery, hampers, alcoholic products, and sweet treats/confectionery. Some items are exempt from VAT, so when you create your own gift, VAT is not charged on things like cheese, pickle or coffee. If you open an account with us, you are able to download your receipts/invoices and the VAT is shown on thos

As a business we are registered with the local authority and have a licence to sell alcohol to people aged 18 and above. Part of our licence requires us to check the age of our purchasers – therefore every package delivered must be signed for by a person over the age of 18

We deliver within 24 hours and require a signature upon delivery. On our box we state there are perishables inside. All temperature-controlled products are sent with frozen cool pads to keep the products within a food-safe range.

Absolutely – you can add a personal message for no extra charge.

We include a Meet the Producers information card within each gift, detailing which products are included, and we print your personal message on this card.

We offer an Ultimate Vegan Hamper and an Ultimate Gluten Free Hamper, both packed with deliciously suitable goodies. Otherwise, the easiest way to have total peace of mind is to create your own gift.

If you like the look of a set hamper/food package you can always ask, however prices may vary and at busy times such as Christmas, we may not be able to accommodate changes. The best way is to ask the question! Just get in touch through our contact us page.

Often the best option is to Create Your Own Hamper through our Create Your Own gift shop! You can choose exactly which products are included to make your hamper just right.
