What is Guzzl?
Guzzl is an indulgent deli in the heart of Brixton's vibrant foodie community. We proudly support as many local suppliers as possible and our shelves are full of yummy products from small independent food makers.
The website offers customers the ability to order custom made food hamper boxes filled with the best products on our shelves.
Why are you called Guzzl?
That's kind of a long story involving whisky. The short version is that any domain name involving the word "guzzle" was already taken. Someone who guzzles is someone who appreciates and enjoys good food, in whatever form it may take. And that's what we are all about.

What is in a Guzzl Box?
Whatever you would like! Just choose from the different categories of goodies to build your own box.
How many items do I get in the box?
As many as you like, but they all have to fit! But we usually cram everything in!
How long does it take to arrive?
We use a reliable 24 hour courier service, so typically you will get the box no later than 48 hours after you ordered it. The packing elves can get items out the same day if required at a small extra charge. Just email or phone to let us know its super urgent.
I have a food allergy, can you 100% guarantee that you can supply products without something I am allergic to?
We can make sure that each product in the box does not contain the allergen in question.
Can you add a card with a message to the box?
Sure thing. Just email us with the details and we will be delighted to add it.
Will you be sending chilled goods in a Guzzl Box?
Not at this stage. We are a start-up and at the moment we are only sending products that are happy travelling at Royal Mail van temperature.
Where do you find your products?
We love supporting local producers and have over 20 based within a few miles of the Brixton store. So often we find tiny producers at local farmers markets and sometimes they wander in with an incredibly tasty treat for us to try.
Every product we sell is from a small producer - so nothing you can find in a supermarket.
What's with the packaging?
We only use environmentally friendly, biodegradable packaging material. It costs slightly more but there is enough waste floating around the world without us adding to it. We hope you can re-use your Guzzl box next time you need to send something in the post.
What happens if I am not there to receive my Guzzl Box?
We feed it to the pigeons. Sorry.
No we don't. We use UK Mail to deliver our boxes, so you will probably get one of those helpful little cards left for you. Or Mr Postie might leave it with your neighbour. Better not to tell them what's inside.
About the Brixton store
What are your opening hours?
At the moment we are only open on Saturdays between 10am and 4pm. But we are delivering locally for free and nationally for a very reasonable sum!
What types of products do you sell in your store?
Our Guzzlers travel the length and breadth of the UK to find the best yummy things from small independent producers.
At the store you can find premium chocolate and confetionary, oils and vinegars, coffees, teas, hot chocolates, biscuits, sauces, ketchups, chutneys and relishes, chilli sauces, jams, marmalades and caramel spreads.
Come in and we promise you will find products and brands you have never seen before!
Do you sell lots of vegan things?
Yes we do. Loads in fact, including chocolate, mayos, pates, sauces, drinks and pestos.
How about organic products?
Some of our product range is organic, but not all of it. To go on the shelf it has to taste great, be made with love and care, use the best ingredients and not be a silly price. If it is organic then so much the better!
Do you sell products that come in plastic packaging?
We encourage our suppliers to use non plastic packaging wherever possible. We also have a policy of not selling any drinks that come in a single use plastic bottle.
We also offer olive oil refills and discounts for customers who provide their own container when buying loose olives.
I have discovered something amazing that should definitely be stocked in Guzzl. Can I tell you all about it?
Yes please! We love recommendations. Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org please.
Who is Guzzl Club?
Guzzl is the stomachchild (like a brainchild but for food) of Andrew Murray-Watson. Andrew started his professional life as a business journalist, where he developed a taste for the finer things in life (paid for on someone else's expense account). His first career ended after a stint as Business Editor of the Independent on Sunday when he went into the equally murky world of corporate communications.
Andrew finally got round to eating (and selling) nice things for a living with the launch of Guzzl in November 2017.
