Friday, April 21st, 2017

Wow – What an Easter we’ve had at Iain Burnett Highland Chocolatier!

This Easter was eggstra special for Iain and the team as they embarked upon creating the ultimate Easter Egg for Glengoyne Distillery!

It took Iain and his team 2 days to create this masterpiece for one of his valued clients! A unique Easter Egg weighing 5kg and standing half a metre tall should in theory collapse under its own weight – it is only by understanding and working with the science behind chocolate that allows Iain to build something so delicate yet structurally strong! He was originally asked to create whisky filled Egg – but instead came up with this more delicate and artistic idea, containing the bottle itself.

You can watch the creation of this Giant Easter Egg here!
