About Our Chocolates

Shelf Life and Storage
Fresh truffles with natural ingredients that contain no preservatives have a relatively short shelf life. To enjoy them at their best you should eat them as soon as possible, preferably within two weeks.

The flavours and aromas of truffles are best enjoyed when they are fresh and at room temperature of 20 degrees Celsius.
Should you need to store them for a few days please keep them in a cool dark place, or in the fridge. Prior to placing them in the fridge please pack the chocolates in an airtight container or freezer bag. After removing the  chocolates from the fridge please allow them to warm up to room temperature in the airtight packaging, opening it only when at room temperature. This will take ca. 2 hours.


How do we make them?
All our chocolates are hand made. We make our own truffle shells, using a 75% single origin Tanzanian Criollo-Trinitario blend chocolate. It is very pure, and has dry, slightly fruity tones that complement the centres beautifully.

We make our truffles with natural, high quality ingredients. They contain organic and single origin chocolates, organic coconut cream, and the best, natural ingredients. We make our own natural fruit reductions, roast our nuts, grind selected coffee.  We do not add artificial food flavours, food replacers or preservatives. The fat that you find in our products comes from cocoa butter, which is the healthy, natural component of chocolate.
We also use honey in some of our chocolates, these we do not consider Vegan.


Allergy Advice
We do not use milk products in the making of our dairy free chocolates range. For the ganache of the truffles we use organic coconut cream, and it gives a lovely pure taste and a great texture.

For people who are dairy intolerant, I should point out that our chocolate is supplied by a manufacturer who also makes milk chocolate, and that in our workshop we also use some dairy products. We take great care to avoid any cross contamination, but there is the very small chance that there may be minute traces of dairy. We believe that our chocolates are dairy free, but anyone with hyper-sensitivity should consider this just to be on the safe side.


Other Potential Allergens
Nuts: We use hazelnuts, almonds and organic peanut butter in some of our chocolates. Because the environment is not completely nut free there may be traces of nuts in other chocolates as well.

Gluten: The ingredients used in these truffles are naturally gluten free - with the exception of the single malt whisky truffle - but they are not made in a completely gluten free environment and are not certified as such.

Soya: Small amounts of soya will be found in most truffles as soya lecithin is used as an emulsifier in the chocolate production.  We have some truffles that do not contain soya. These are:

100% Dark Truffles

Traditional Dark Chocolate Truffles

Honeycomb Hazelnut Pralines

Coffee Hazelnut Pralines

Traditional Fondant Creams (Violet and Rose)


Decoration, food colouring
A small amount of edible food paint is used in decoration of some of the chocolates. They contain E102, E131, E171, E555.
