If you are organising a New Year Party for your family and friends and you want to give them a very special, unforgettable experience or you are simply looking for a luxury thank you gift that will leave them speechless then the Highland Chocolatier can help you. No New Year Party is complete without a bottle of malt whisky shared with friends and a glass of champagne at midnight, but what can make the evening even better is adding luxury gourmet chocolates expertly paired with some of the best whiskies and champagnes in Scotland. Put these boxes of champagne and whisky chocolates on the table five minutes before midnight and you might not find them ten minutes later!
Gourmet chocolates and champagne
Expertly matching champagne and gourmet chocolates is Iain Burnett Highland Chocolatier’s specialty. Working together with Laurent Perrier we have created a range of luxury gourmet chocolates that contain no alcohol or preservatives but make for an amazing treat when combined with premier champagnes.
One such product is the Strawberry and Star Anise Velvet Truffle containing fruit coulis ganache infused with star anise and coated in milk chocolate with caramel notes. Pair this magnificent velvet truffle with Laurent Perrier Cuvée Rosé Champagne for a perfect New Year celebration. Or why not try the sophisticated taste of White Lime and Chilli Velvet Truffle? This fresh infusion contains tangy limes crushed over white chocolate and complemented with a hint of chilli. For an unforgettable finish the white lime and chilli velvet truffle has been coated in 70% Dark São Tomé chocolate. Perfect to pair with Laurent Perrier Ultra Brut and Laurent Perrier Demi-Sec Champagnes. These boxes of chocolates contain 9 velvet truffles each and are ideal to share.
The sophisticated whisky companions
The Highland Chocolatier has a mouth-watering selection of whisky chocolate for any taste. Our range of whisky companions was created to match some of the top Scottish malts, which makes them the perfect luxury thank you gifts for the whisky lover.
So how about our All Orange Truffles Box? This amazing whisky chocolate companion contains dark chocolate ganache of orange and clove covered with 70% Dark São Tomé chocolate. It can be paired with seven different whiskies including Mortlach 18 Year Old, Glenfiddich 15 Year Old and Singleton 12 Year Old. Or maybe you need something more refreshing? Then the All Lemongrass Praline Box is the ideal choice. This selection of hazelnut pralines infused with lemongrass citrus and coated in 70% Dark São Tomé chocolate can be paired with Macallan Amber, Bunnahabhain 12 Year Old, Glenkinchie 12 Year Old and Caol Ila Moch.

Refreshing chocolate dipped fruits
Whisky and champagne do not always need to be paired with boxes of chocolates, whisky chocolate or luxury chocolate bars. They are also exceptional when paired with chocolate dipped fruits. That is why the Highland Chocolatier created São Tomé 70% dark chocolate dipped Whole Clementines. The fruits are carefully candied over days and expertly decorated by hand serving as a real treat for the connoisseur. This luxury chocolate dipped fruits are perfectly paired with Laurent Perrier Vintage 2004 Champagne.
Another all-time-favourite are the Highland Chocolatier’s São Tomé 70% dark chocolate Dipped Cherries. These juicy cherries have been candied and dipped in gourmet chocolate to create the perfect whisky chocolate treat. Pair with Glenfiddich 30 Year Old malt to bring out the subtle flavour notes of the whisky.
