For more than 30 years we have made classic traditional Christmas Pudding masterpieces, as well great contemporary style puddings for people who prefer something different.
Or "Partridge in a Pear Tree" themed Christmas Puddings come in their own award-winning gift packaging and like all our Christmas Puddings there is nothing more you need to do but put them in your hampers, send them as corporate gifts, or have them brighten your Christmas retail displays.
We use the best local and imported ingredients in our Christmas Puddings. Some of those ingredients include treats like Grand Marnier, Galliano, Cointreau - and of course Gippsland’s very own Hatlifter Stout.
We have Christmas puddings in cloth in a variety of colours, patterns and ribbons, and we can even style them in your own corporate branding.
Of course there are also gluten-free Christmas Puddings.
Product development has always been central to what we do at The Gourmet Merchant. Only last year we brought out our French Champagne Christmas Puddings.
We have worked with major retailers, smaller food outlets, specialty retailers, food service, corporate gift and hamper companies for many many years, making sure their Christmas is a happy one. We know the pressure they are under, and we are geared up to get our products to them when they need them.

Nigella Lawson loves our Christmas Puddings
Nigella Lawson, the domestic goddess, wanted us to produce here in Australia private label Christmas Cakes and Christmas Puddings for her.
The only reason that did not go ahead, was the tyranny of distance, producing and transporting from Australia, paying the EU tariffs etc, made the project financially unviable.
Maybe Brexit will make it feasible.
Many of our Christmas Puddings and desserts really do contain Grand Marnier, Cointreau and Galliano
We hold international licences from the makers of Grand Marnier, Marnier Lapostolle to proudly bear the famous Grand Marnier trademark on our range of Chocolate Truffle Desserts (flavoured with Grand Marnier).
We hold similar licences from Remy Martin for products using Cointreau, and from the makers of the aromatic Italian liqueur Galliano for a range of desserts and cakes.
We are very proud to be partnered with these internationally renowned names.
Our Chocolate Truffle Dessert has had a Royal Command Performance
Our wonderful Chocolate Truffle Dessert flavoured with Grand Marnier has been served to the then Prince of Wales, Prince Charles and (then) Camilla Parker-Bowles at an Anglo Australian function in London, with apparently unanimous delight.
We were the first Australian producer selling Christmas Puddings to Harvey Nichols and Selfridges, London.
At that stage, we were the only Australian producer selling Christmas Puddings, Great Australian Puddings, Chocolate Truffle and Fig and Walnut puddings into these retailers.
We were also approached by Harrods, Englands most famous retail brand, to produce private label Christmas Puddings and Cakes for them.
Our “Partridge in a Pear Tree” packaging for our Christmas puddings, cakes and other Christmas goodies have won a Packaging Council Award.
We were the first company to package our Christmas Puddings in gorgeous presentation boxes.
Prior to our entry into the market place, all competitive Christmas Puddings were presented in a very traditional, "cottagey" presentation, with calico and ribbons.
We set the standard which now many others have followed.
Our award winning packaging has enabled our products to become the focal point for instore displays in retail stores such as David Jones.
Plus all our other Christmas Goodies
