Following the success of last year’s Limited Edition Christmas offering, KETTLE® Chips has announced the launch of its 2019 variation, incorporating a unique British twist.
A proud supporter of local businesses, the nation’s favourite hand-cooked chip brand’s in-house chef, Phil Hovey, has worked with Award-Winning, Norfolk-based Winbirri Vineyard, to create the perfect flavour combination – Truffled Cheese & a Splash of English Sparkling Wine.
Following outstanding pre-Christmas sales in 2018, the brand-new SKU is expected to complement the Christmas ranges at major retailer including Asda, Morrisons and Tesco. Launching in autumn with an RRP of £1.99, the Truffled Cheese & a Splash of English Sparkling Wine flavour combines the earthy, nutty flavour of the truffled cheese seasoning with the subtle fruity and floral notes of sparkling wine – perfect for any festive get-togethers this Christmas.
Phil Hovey, Innovation Chef at KETTLE®, said: “Following the love we received for Truffled Cheese & Champagne last year, I decided that if it ain’t broke, let’s make it even better this winter! “Having lent a hand supporting Lee at Winbirri with his Bacchus harvests on many occasions, I’ve known the team at the Vineyard for a number of years. Not only are they just down the road from us, but they also produce exceptional wine, with their 2015 Bacchus recognised as the Best Single Varietal White Wine in the World by the Decanter World Wine judges.
“Norfolk is a proud part of our brand heritage and with most of the potatoes we use grown within 30 miles of the KETTLE® cook-rooms, it seemed like the perfect partnership. The crisp, clean flavour of
Winbirri’s English sparkling wine perfectly brings out the intense, rich truffle cheese seasoning and I’m thrilled to introduce this very British chip to the KETTLE® range.”
Lee Dyer, head winemaker at Winbirri Vineyard, said: “We’re delighted to have partnered with KETTLE® to develop this wonderfully festive chip. We’re very proud of the wine we create here at Winbirri Vineyard and it’s incredibly exciting to have worked with another local company that shares our passion for getting the best out of local produce.
“We hope everyone enjoys time with friends and family this festive period, sharing this delicious limited-edition KETTLE® chip, and maybe even a glass of Winbirri!”
