Biltmore’s licensed products division has expanded the company’s branded gourmet foods program through a partnership with Barrie House Coffee & Tea. The Valen Group brokered the deal between Biltmore and Barrie House Coffee & Tea.
New products will include three coffee flavors, Estate Blend, Decaf Estate Blend, Château Noir French Roast style and one introductory tea flavor, English Breakfast. The company’s new coffee and tea lines reflect the high quality products served at the four-star Inn on Biltmore Estate and are a natural fit with Biltmore’s history of entertaining.
"Mr. and Mrs. Vanderbilt were world-famous for their ability to entertain. Coffee and tea were enjoyed regularly at the estate and still are to this day," says Tim Rosebrock, vice president and general manager for Biltmore’s licensing division. "This partnership is an ideal fit for our branded foods category as we strive to continue Biltmore’s legacy of culinary history and hospitality. We hope consumers will be able to enjoy a taste of Biltmore each day at home."
