Artisans work from the heart. They start as apprentices and spend many years honing their craft. They are despotic about using the best materials, fanatical about perfecting each gesture to an art until they can do it blindly. They are proud of their work. So are we. Artisan products beautifully crafted are the last true luxury in the world. We start by searching for exceptional and rare cocoa beans carefully harvested from South America, the Caribbean and Asia with distinct taste profiles. We transform these into chocolate bars adding cane sugar and dried milk from the British Isles, conching and refining in Kent.

Artisan du Chocolat is one of the very few British artisan chocolatiers who produce chocolate bars from ground cocoa beans. For soft centered chocolates, we infuses cream with fresh herbs, flowers, spices, nuts and fruits gently emulsify it with chocolate, a little sugar and butter. Most Artisan chocolates have a short shelf life because they are fresh and do not contain vegetable fat, excess sugar or alcohol. Our products are unique and whimsical from our famous salted caramels to our beautiful pearls, surprising Os or moreish chocolate coated popcorn and biscuits.
