Scotland’s Top Chocolatier Launches a New Retail Range

Friday, November 7th, 2014

Velvet Truffle Classic Open Box 3November 2014 has been truly momentous for Iain Burnett Highland Chocolatier at Grandtully, Highland Perthshire as we introduce The Velvet Truffle Range of pure naked truffles with no hard chocolate shell.  Previously only available to Michelin Star Chefs, the un-enrobed range will include the Velvet Truffle – Classic, dusted with cocoa, the award-winning Velvet Truffle – Raspberry and Black Pepper  and the Velvet Truffle –  White Lime with a hint of Chilli.  It is easy to understand how these truly sublime truffles are Iain’s signature chocolates – now you are able to appreciate this world class product.

The pinnacle has been achieved thanks to a technology breakthrough.   The naked truffles are now presented in a sealed foil gold pack with an oxygen-absorbing smart food tag to keep the fresh cream truffles natural and free from artificial sugars and preservatives. So now everyone can enjoy them!

Velvet Truffle Classic Gold Box FinalIain Burnett Highland Chocolatier uses a uniquely flavoured single-origin cocoa from the volcanic island of São Tomé.  This intense cocoa is carefully selected for its exceptional range of fruity, aromatic and spicy characteristics, and painstakingly matched with unblended Scottish cream from a particular herd of cows in Perthshire.  With no artificial additives or preservatives, only the best ingredients and exotic spices are infused to create flavours and textures to delight the palate.

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.    The ganaches can be elegantly enrobed in chocolate, or experienced in its purest form without a chocolate shell, as seen in this new range!

The Highland Chocolatier works with businesses and a range of corporate clients to create customised gourmet chocolates. We are proud to have won international and national awards and to have supplied British Airways First, as well as some of the best hotels and several Michelin Star chefs throughout the UK.     The products are available to purchase through their shops in Grandtully and St Andrews, by ordering on-line or by telephone for delivery worldwide.
