MEET OUR BOXX BUDDIES
"I was born in a big family in Buenos Aires, Argentina - think Sunday lunch with around 25 people sitting at the table! In 2004 I moved to Maidenhead and was working in product development but once my 3rd baby arrived I decided to start something more flexible and based from home. That’s when “Como en Casa” was born, meaning “I eat at home” and “like at home”. I hope you enjoy these sweet treats which are based on recipes from my childhood."
Teas and Herbal Infusions
“Nipper&Co is a small mum-run business with big dreams. I want to support mamma’s and their growing families around the world, with our wonderful, premium quality, organic herbal infusions and teas. I have brought together the tradition of herbal teas from my home country Croatia, with what I learned during my studies as an agronomist and added lots of love and care to it. From pregnancy, nursing, colic, relaxing and sleep through to immunity and that often needed pick me up when the tough gets going,
I really hope you enjoy each sip as my family and I do!”

Natural, Organic Skincare
“Pinks Boutique is born out of the passion of an expert 'boy and girl' combination interlinking lessons learned from a career in professional premiership rugby, 20 years of skin expertise, successful beauty schools, and a spa professional career. Over 10 years ago before it was uber cool to be vegan, sustainable and organic we realised there was a need for beauty products with real organic certified ingredients and genuine integrity...so we created Pinks Boutique. Hand-blended in England from natural and organic ingredients accredited by the Soil Association, without any synthetic chemicals.”
"With a mutual love of beauty and spirits, we wanted to create a quality gin which not only tasted beautiful but looked it too. Collagen in gin? Why not! It doesn’t affect nor enhance the taste of the tipple but it is a tasty way of getting your dose of collagen."
Camilla and Liz

Yasmin and Naila
"We are a husband and wife team running a small batch coffee roastery in Farnham Common, Buckinghamshire.
Our passion for coffee stems from the exposure to speciality coffee shops whilst working in London. Driven to know why ‘speciality’ is so ‘special’ sent us down a path of technical discovery which led to the idea of starting the business.
We apply a scientific approach to coffee roasting with repeatable results and we roast on-demand in small batches to ensure customers experience freshly roasted coffee".
Wayne and Sarah
"During a night out in Marlow we noticed that a great tasting local gin was missing.
A plan was hatched, The Marlow Distillery was formed and Marlow Gin was born.
We are proud to introduce our quality, small batch, hand crafted gin dedicated to our lovely town.
We source our Juniper carefully to give our spirit a fantastic taste, with strong notes of pine and we add tones of citrus from the best quality lemongrass and fresh lime with liquorice to give a more viscous texture. Hops grown in the UK add a spicy, honey and earthy aroma."
Nick and Colin
"It all began with popping corn at local food festivals. The feedback we got was so positive, it inspired us to start selling our bags of popcorn further afield.
Using gourmet ‘mushroom’ corn and specially selected ingredients, we lovingly pop small batches of corn and are on a mission to create the UK’s favourite hand-popped popcorn!"
"The Cricketers Gin journey began on a relaxed Sunday afternoon, with a refreshing gin and tonic, watching cricket on Pinkneys Green. Surrounded by the stunning Berkshire countryside, we decided that this quintessential British game, along with the wild botanicals growing in abundance, deserved a bespoke gin of its very own.
Our combined experience, together with a shared love of a gin and tonic, have been the winning combination that has culminated in the creation of an exquisite gin."
Rachel and David

Lola Belles was created from a love of jewellery - in particular, silver jewellery. What I love about silver jewellery is you can wear it every day, it goes with everything and can be dressed either up or down. The jewellery is handmade in the UK.”

Ben & Martin
Angel & Four Sparkling Wine
“We love wine from England; the passion, the hard work, and the craft that goes in to growing grapes and making wine on a small, over-populated and often rainy little island is what gets us out of bed in the morning. Great sparkling wine, from England, for everyone.”
Griffiths Brothers Gin
“We’re a family run distillery in the Buckinghamshire village of Penn Street, deep in the
Chiltern Hills. It started out as a challenge between us. Could we create a gin from scratch
that would impress family and friends? It soon became an obsession. We wanted to produce. The best hand-crafted gin around. We use a cold distillation process where each botanical is individually macerated to draw out its essential oils. The results speak for themselves.”
Alex & Andrew
Twelve Below Low Sugar Tonics
Inspired by our surrounding local British produce in the Chiltern Hills, we started to develop a collection of natural low sugar tonics which could be paired with a range of spirits or simply enjoyed as a sophisticated stand-alone drink.
TwelveBelow is the UK’s first all-natural genuinely low sugar tonic, sweetened with a dash of organic agave, 12 calories per 100ml serving and 100% natural.”
Mel & Ross
The Snaffling Pig Co. Pork Crackling
“We think if something is worth doing, it’s worth doing piggin’ right. That’s why we always set out to make the finest, most awesome flavoured pork crackling possible. Thankfully, the good judges at the Great Taste Awards shared our view (hurrah!) as we have received nine Great Taste Awards.”
