Made of Irish was built around the customer experience. As a small business, we knew we could not bring in all the brands we wanted to represent as soon as we opened and we have slowly been increasing the number of companies we represent. Throughout this process, we have worked with other up and coming businesses in Ireland to bring their items in, to enhance the customer experience that we offer. So if you were looking through our site and were thinking - that would be fantastic but I wish I could add in a box of cookies, a bottle of wine, or absolutely anything, reach out to us and ask and we will do what we can to arrange it for you!
To give you an idea of what we have done before, here are a few companies that we have had the pleasure of working with in the past year!
Run by Karen and Natalie Keane and based in the Wexford countryside Bean & Goose exists to create better-tasting chocolate and to be a better-produced chocolate brand. Tapping into amazing sustainable raw ingredients and beautiful Irish products, they tell their story about how they make joyful and thoughtful things happen with chocolate again.
We have included bars from Bean & Goose in some of our hampers around Christmas.
Since 2012 the founders of Nobó have been on a mission to reinvent the classic treat, and create simpler, kinder plant-based alternatives that are better for you and better for the planet, using a few simple ingredients, sourced from the best suppliers, made in small batches, and as sustainably as possible. For a plant based alternative to a firm favourite, Nobó presents a fantastic variety of options.
Established in 1844, generations of the Lalor family have farmed the land. In 1999, Pat Lalor decided to convert the entire farm to organic status. This means no pesticides, herbicides or artificial fertilisers are used in the growing of their oats. Their Mint Chocolate Chip Oat Cookies are a personal favourite and they make a fantastic addition to any gift hamper.
Solaris are a family business established by husband and wife: Joerg and Karin Mueller, two qualified Medical Herbalists. Based in Galway by the rugged shoreline of Irelands West coast, Solaris specialises in the blending and preparation of International Award winning Whole-Leaf Organic Teas. Their teas have featured prominently in several corporate gift boxes that we have sent out.
Silverskin Coffee Roasters is an award winning coffee roasting company based here in Dublin. Their coffee offers focus on hybrid varietals and experimental fermentation. They work with reputable farmers and pioneers who respect the land they work from and the people who carry out the laborious work and the difference can quite literally be tasted in their coffee.
Box of Wine was created with the aim of developing a brand new way of enjoying wine at home. They want to make the world of wine a less intimidating place, to expand your palate and to introduce fantastic, great value wine that you won’t find in your local supermarket. While we don't have the ability to sell alcoholic beverages at Made of Irish, once our clients purchase the wine from Box of Wine, their team send the order to us, and we package it in with gifts from our lovely makers.
Located just down the road from us, Deveney's has been open for almost 50 years and is run by the third generation, Ruth Deveney. A multi-award winning shop, Ruth is passionate and knowledgeable across wine, beer and spirits. Similar to the way we work with Box of Wine, our clients have placed orders with Deveney's to be delivered to our warehouse to be packaged with their larger orders.
And that's just the start of it...
