Whisky Hamper with Four Tumbler Glasses
Length 33 cm x Width 27 cm x Height 13.5 cm
Double Steamed Wicker Whisky Hamper Basket made from full buff willow wicker. The willow is steamed twice to give that rich chestnut colour. The Whisky Hamper has four sections along the front of the basket, each containing a tumbler glass. The single section along the back is just the right size for a bottle. The lid is lined with black fabric and hinged with brown faux leather. A faux leather and metal carrying handle, and clasp to hold the lid in place, completes the look and finish of this Whisky Hamper.
Instead of Whisky why not put in a bottle of ever popular gin or any other spirit to make the gift more personal.
Our range of gift baskets include a single bottle basket with champagne glasses included, a two bottle chiller basket, a garden tool basket, barbecue tool basket,and a beautiful chiller basket with a matching picnic blanket.
Willow baskets are very versatile. These are much hardier and can be used outside as they will survive in all weathers. Usually a stronger weave, they are very sturdy and solid. Grown in fields and by river banks as willow, the branches are stripped of their outer layer and usually treated before weaving. The end product is well suited to carrying weight although the baskets themselves are lightweight.
Buff Willow is cropped mainly in November, but sometimes not until December. It is the most popular and is obtained by boiling the willows to release the natural colourant tannin from the bark into the wood. The bark is then stripped from the willow revealing the characteristic golden colour. The darker colour is gained by steaming the baskets twice.
Our baskets are handcrafted from natural products, please allow 5% tolerance on all measurements
