Whisky Galore

So for the next few weeks Mr D is working in Edinburgh from Monday to Thursday. The positives are that he gets to buy a new malt whisky every week as he comes through the airport, and I get to work extra-long days to get stocked up for Christmas!

We’re busy getting ready for the Chocolate Show which starts next Thursday, so that means getting a lot of stock ready. Although we do put our Festive collections online earlier, we use this show as our official launch of the Festive Collections. As in previous years we’ve got a 12-chocolate collection and a 24-chocolate box with 2 of each flavour. We’ve got the same great flavours in the box and I particularly love the Blackberry Cheesecake. Mr D’s favourite is the Chocolate Orange Martini, so I have to make extra of both of those ­čśë

The Chocolate Show is at Olympia and open from 12-15 October to the general public, with a VIP Gala Evening to open the show on the 11th. Make sure you come and say hello if you’re coming along.

Choctails® was founded by husband and wife team Simon and Hilary Delamare. Simon's suggestion of putting cocktail flavours into chocolate took Hilary's chocolate-making hobby to new heights, until in May 2012, the decision was made to turn the hobby into a full time business. The domestic kitchen became a production factory by day, and the dining room was given up to become a place where hand-made chocolate is crafted
