Half Shell Gin

Wright Brothers Half Shell Gin

The ultimate gift for the oyster lover that enjoys a good tipple too! Our very first own brand gin makes use of our oyster shells, alongside kelp seaweed to create a unique savoury spirit. Distilled with the experts at The Ginstitute on Portobello Road, we think it makes the perfect base for a classic martini and is especially delicious paired with seafood. Each bottle comes packaged in this beautiful gift tube with wraparound oyster shell design.

Josh Niland cookbook gift idea

The Whole Fish Cookbook: New ways to cook, eat and think

There’s been a lot of buzz around this book, penned by Australian chef Josh Niland. If your loved one enjoys cooking seafood, then this could be the perfect gift. Josh explains how to go beyond fillets and use every part of the fish, from nose-to-tail(fin). The photography is exquisite and for the fish enthusiast, this will be a book to cherish for years. Our executive chef Richard Kirkwood heralded it “the new bible for all future fish chefs”.

G-18 Global filleting knife

G-18 Global filleting knife

Every budding chef needs a set of good knives and this one is a great all-rounder. Made using stainless steel of the highest quality, it’s executive chef Richard Kirkwood’s go to knife and the one he has used since he was 21. The knife is more flexible than a chef’s knife meaning you get better precision for filleting whole fish or to remove the skin from fish fillets with ease. However, Kirkwood explains it performs just as well chopping vegetables and herbs, and can be used to bone meat — the perfect tool for your game bird this Christmas.

A good friend of Wright Brothers, Bobby is usually found shucking our oysters at his cart in Chiltern Firehouse. Part travelogue, Bobby gives an insight into the social history of our unique coastline and as a result, the oysters that grow here.
