Zwilling J.A. Henckels

The history of the ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS brand starts on June 13, 1731 (under the Gemini star sign). It was on that day that knife-maker Peter Henckels from Solingen registered the "Twin" symbol as his trademark with the Cutlers´ Guild of Solingen. This symbol which is now well-known all over the world , is thus one of the oldest trademarks in the world.
Today´s name - ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS - was given to the Company by a descendant of Peter Henckels, Johann Abraham Henckels.

Today products by ZWILLING J.A. HENCKELS are recognized globally as the symbol for the highest possible quality and function.

Sunchowder's Emporia

Three years ago, Wendy Read left her corporate job to make jams – and not just any jams, mind you, but complex expressions of fruit derived from a few simple ingredients. With the freshest fruit around, Read makes each batch by hand in copper kettles. Using old French methods of jam making, such as allowing fruit to macerate overnight, Read coaxes luscious flavors out of berries and stone fruits. Since Read doesn’t add pectin, her preserves have a pure, smooth texture: They’re deliciously different from the average jam.  Each jam is Fruit-forward and full-bodied, with light citrusy notes. As if by magic, fresh fruit, sugar and lemon zest combine to make this mouthwatering jams by Sunchowder’s Emporia. The sugar and acid allow fruit to shine at its full flavor potential. The fruit in these jams is so ripe and luscious that it’s hard not to eat them by the spoonful.  Read’s jams are fabulous served on a piping-hot Danish, onto fresh shortcakes or mixed a spoonful with ricotta cheese and cinnamon for dessert. Jam is fun to have around, but hard to keep around when it’s Sunchowder’s Emporia.

Bisol is a family-owned winery which has been producing high-quality prosecco sparkling wines wines in the Veneto region of Italy near Venice since 1875, although reccords show the family already growing grapes here 5 centuries ago. Today, the Bisol company owns a total of 125 hectares spread out over 35 plots, nestled in the steep hills that lead from Valdobbiadene towards Conegliano, the most prestigious area of the appellation. The land is extremely fragmented and studded with small plots, so much so that the average size of each property is little more than a hectare. The 3 hectares possessed by Bisol on the Cartizze hill, the most precious vineyard in Italy where prices can reach €1 million per hectare, is their crowning glory.

The winery is currently managed by Antonio and Eliseo Bisol together with their sons Gianluca and Desiderio; and Claudio and Alberto. The family supervises every step of the winemaking process from grape to glass, from taking care of the  vineyards, to supervising the low-yield harvest, to bottling and aging the dozen or more different wines made by the company. Bisol is one of the few wineries in the area to produce sparkling wines using both the Charmat Method and the Methode Champenoise, and has long been recognized as an innovative presence in the Prosecco region. Bisol wines are available through independent distributors and selected wine shops worldwide.

With over a century of experience, family-managed company Nielsen-Massey produces one of the best vanilla extracts in the world from their base in Waukegan, Illinois.  Nielsen-Massey Vanilla Extract is made from the finest Madagascan vanilla beans that are hand-picked, cured and put through a cold extraction process, which slowly and gently draws the vanilla from the bean, preserving the delicate flavour. Gourmet food shops and fine grocers stock Nielsen-Massey's vanilla products on their shelves for discriminating consumers who appreciate the art of fine cooking and baking.

The company's new line of Pure Extracts (including flavours such as coffee extract, orange blossom water, chocolate extract and rose water) is about to be released in the UK and contains natural botanic oils in an alcohol base for the cleanest flavour and purity and are made to the same stringent quality standards as the Pure Vanilla Extracts.


TABASCO® brand products are made by McIlhenny Company, founded in 1868 on Avery Island, Louisiana, and still family-owned and operated on the same site. Original TABASCO® brand Pepper Sauce was created in the mid-to-late 1860s by Edmund McIlhenny who was given seeds of Capsicum frutescens pand thrived on the island. McIlhenny decided to create a pepper sauce to give his food some spice and flavour, mixing his best peppers with Avery Island salt and aging this mash for 30 days in crockery jars and barrels. The mash was then blended with French white wine vinegar and aged the mixture for at least another 30 days. The sauce was bottler in small cologne-type bottles with sprinkler fitments, corked with green wax - and this packaging has hardly changed today.  

Over 140 years later, TABASCO® Sauce is still made on Avery Island, Louisiana - in fact, about half of the company’s 200 employees actually live on Avery Island, with many of their parents and grandparents having worked and lived there as well.  The sauce is also made much the same way except now the aging process is up to three years in white oak barrels and the vinegar is high quality distilled vinegar. Labeled in 22 languages and dialects, sold in over 160 countries and territories, added to soldiers’ rations, and put on restaurant tables around the globe, it is the most famous, most preferred pepper sauce in the world. Today the product range includes the original sauce as well as Jalapeno, Habanero and Chipotle flavours as well as Bloody Mary mixes, barbecue sauces, and spicy snacks.
