A jar of Bulida apricots from Murcia in Spain which, known for their sweeter taste, are then preserved in a light syrup containing Drambuie. Delicious on their own or with ice cream, yoghurt, or fresh cream.
A jar of Luxardo's excellent maraschino cherries. These aren't the bright red cocktail cherries you usually see, made by removing all the cherries natural flavour and replacing it with syrup. These are marasca cherries steeped in a maraschino flavoured syrup, creating little cherry flavour bombs that will ruin you for other cocktail garnishes.

These wonderful sour cherries have been covered in sugar and left in the sun, converting the sugar into a deliciously decadent syrup. These magnificent cherries and juice are the same as those used to make the fabulous Visciolata del Cardinale dessert wine, and are great with puddings, duck or cheese, as well as making a perfect cocktail garnish.
A variant on the regular Visciole del Cardinale cherries, stoning the cherries before their process of covering them in sugar in the sun, allowing them to exude a thick cherry juice which they are then jarred with. Great in cocktails or with dark meat and cheese.
