Chocolate: the good news
Chocolate is good for you! It’s one of nature’s superfoods, packed full of antioxidants and flavanols. It can help protect your heart, lower your cholesterol and aid in regulating your blood sugar and blood pressure. Chocolate can even assist with cognitive functions – that’s right, eating chocolate can actually make you smarter…
The benefits of chocolate were first recognised by the Mayan civilisation many centuries ago. Even the Latin name of the cacao tree, Theobroma cacao, means ‘food of the gods’. Chocolate’s amazing properties have long been assumed to be divine, and now nutritionists are discovering the scientific facts behind the emotional benefits we all feel when we eat chocolate.
From Africa with love
We marry the traditional artisanal skills of the chocolatier with the finest West African cacao, the sweetest cane sugar and rich full cream milk from South Africa’s lush green pastures to create our chocolates.
We source premium vanilla pods from Madagascar, and you can taste the difference – and experience it too.
“I’ve always enjoyed single malt whiskeys, and chocolate, but never thought of pairing them together. It was a revelation.”
“Learning the history of chocolate – and trying amazing chocolates from around the world – has made me appreciate it even more”
