It’s that wonderful time of year when our thoughts turn to Christmas chocolates. We’ve now introduced a range of pre-packaged hampers and gifts to suit all budgets up to the grand gesture! For corporate gifts we can offer personalisation options for a small surcharge – please contact us. Many of these are priced to include free shipping to a single address.
We’re going to do our Christmas deliveries a little differently this year anticipating how busy the couriers will be and also our capacity to hand make and pack enough chocolates! Yes we hand make our chocolates in a small team of four using traditional artisan techniques.
We won’t be offering delayed dispatch this year, so please don’t order requesting delayed dispatch, it’s very difficult to manage and though your gift may arrive early it will avoid the courier rush. Instead all chocolates in stock now have best before dates past Christmas.
We will dispatch chocolates as soon as possible. Please check your tracking as soon as you receive notification from DPD local and nominate a Safe Place, Neighbour, or Local shop if you will be out. We’ve noticed some DPD Local depots may now deliver straight to a local shop after the first delivery attempt if no safe place is selected. This needs to be done via the DPD website when you receive their delivery nottification or through our tracking link to DPD local.
All deliveries are fully tracked by DPD Local who are certified carbon neutral, and we’ve held our shipping rate at £4-95 with Free Shipping now for orders above £45. Please check out our new hamper gifts as many also include free shipping too! DPD Local offer ‘in delivery’ options to leave in a safe place, with a neighbour, or to a local shop. This is done via the DPD website or app when you receive your tracking notification.
We know that many of you would have looked forward to seeing us at Bath Christmas market. Sadly that couldn’t go ahead again this year. But we’re the same small team of four and we hand make all of our chocolates in the same way in the beautiful town of Corsham just outside of Bath.
We thank you for supporting us. By buying from us you are supporting a net zero, plastic free company using 100% UK made packaging, direct trading ingredients, and supporting the people of Madagascar and Colombia through Raisetrade – the World’s Fairest Chocolate. You’re also supporting a small UK artisan manufacturer working in an economic model fit for the 21st century. Did we mention we won Eleven Taste of the Gold Awards this year and were finalists in both the Chocolate and Vegan Categories!
