Iain's passion is Truffle PerfectionIain Burnett

Iain's team of Chocolatiers


Award-winning artisan chocolatier Iain Burnett trained under Master Chocolatiers of the Belgian, Swiss and French schools, and creates the multiple awarded Velvet Truffle as well as an internationally renowned range of fresh cream truffles and spiced pralines.  It took over 3 years to create his unique truffle using only natural and fresh ingredients – the now famous Velvet Truffle.   Iain and his team provide top chefs with gourmet truffles of an artisan quality unavailable elsewhere. The small dedicated team of chocolatiers are trained in-house to meticulously hand-craft chocolates.    His ganaches can be elegantly enrobed in chocolate, or experienced in its purest form without a chocolate shell at all!

We hope that you enjoy the chocolates as much as we love creating them.


Carefully matched Flavour Profiles

The Best Natural Ingredients

Iain Burnett uses a uniquely flavoured single-origin cocoa from the volcanic island of São Tomé in the South Atlantic.  This intense cocoa was carefully selected for its exceptional range of fruity, aromatic and spicy characteristics, and was painstakingly matched with an unblended fresh Scottish cream from a particular herd of cows.  With no artificial additives or preservatives, only the best ingredients and exotic spices are infused to create flavours and textures to delight the palate.  Each fresh harvest brings constantly shifting flavour balances to our recipes.
