As the title suggests, we deal in food and beverage but look for something different.
This can be at home on our doorstep or further afield in another country, so our goal is to bring it to the UK market.
Whether it’s Gin from Australia or sauces from America, we will do our best to give our UK customers the opportunity to taste, to try and to buy.
In order to do this we need to go hunting, but not in the normal sense of the word. We’re not fierce cavemen (and women) but we love to source new and different products.
Although I must admit, it sounds more cool to be called a “hunter” than a “sourcer”
Anyway, we hunt the globe for food and drink that is going to get people’s curiosity bubbling over.
How many times have you been on holiday and tried a native dish or drink, only to be disappointed when you got home and found it you couldn’t get it here.
Or, because of the power of the internet, you can get it but shipping one item is going to cost you the earth.
That’s why we do what we do. We locate these items and bring them to the local market, be it in the UK or South East Asia.
However, we are sorry to spoil your moment, as we cannot give you exclusivity of the product because we want others to enjoy it as well. So we bring in more than one and present it to the masses.
Now we don’t just buy and sell things and that’s that. Oh no, we need to know everything about the product, how it’s made, who makes it and most importantly, why do they make it.
Knowing all of these factors allows you to enjoy the product even more. To immerse yourself in the passion of the creator and feel what they feel.
In today’s world of craft and artisan products, people don’t just want to have a plain old gin, or beer or even coffee. They want to experience something different.
They want to enjoy the pleasure that a specific product gave them, even if it’s not on a beach in the Bahamas and is in a back garden in Croyden (no offence Croyden).
Our aim has always been to bring the world together through making foreign food and beverage more easily accessible.
Our journey is ongoing and we hope you will share it with us as the team at Crafty Connoisseur try to bring you something new, something different.
