New Salted Toffee Dark Bar

Tuesday, August 28th, 2018

Proudly presenting…

Due to popular demand, Iain Burnett is proud to present: the Sea Salted Toffee Dark Bar!
Iain’s Salted Toffee Milk Bar has been a best-seller since its introduction to the range, and Iain is pleased to now offer the same magnificent handcrafted tablet for dark chocolate lovers.

Based on a rare 72% São Tomé Island chocolate, the sparing addition of sea salt accentuates the robustness of the single origin dark cocoa.  The toffee pieces and salt crystals  sprinkled on top of the bar add texture, crunch, and a flavourful interplay between savoury and sweet.

Each of Iain’s artisan chocolate bars are handmade in the chocolate kitchen, and tempered to perfection– giving them a sublime glossy finish and a satisfying snap when broken.

Choose your perfect selection of 4 gourmet chocolate bars for £20.

Iain hopes you’ll enjoy the latest creation!

 

Celebrating World Chocolate Day!

Friday, July 6th, 2018

Chocolate, We Think The World of You!

While every day is Chocolate Day at Iain Burnett Highland Chocolatier, the 7th of July marks the annual celebration of World Chocolate Day.  A day when we can all joyfully doff our caps to one of the most beloved foods on the planet. Of course there are countless ways to enjoy the day, but here are a few suggestions from Iain’s corner of the world.

Simply the Zest!

Coinciding with World Chocolate Day, Iain is offering a new Summer Selection Box. A tantalising medley of fruit and floral Velvet Truffles. A wonderful complement of flavours for the long, hot summer days.

Encircled in a white and gold box, these brightly coloured gourmet treats are certain to make your taste buds sparkle like sunshine!

Take A Dip

In this hot weather, let your palate do the travelling, with pineapples, clementines, lemons and cherries.

Iain’s selection of dipped fruit is the ultimate way to savour summer.  Fine fruit, delicately candied over days to retain their natural sweetness and juiciness, then hand-dipped and dressed in Iain’s gourmet chocolate.

Paint the Town Red…

With Iain’s luxury Red Cocoa!

100% cocoa powder, crafted through a careful process of fermentation, roasting and grinding.

Rich and robust, red cocoa adds an aromatic, bittersweet punch to both savoury and sweet recipes.  Wonderful for those on the lookout for more ways to integrate chocolate flavours into their lives–on World Chocolate Day and every day!

Happy World Chocolate Day from Highland Perthshire,

 

 

 

Strawberry Fields Forever

A Divine Taste of Scottish Summer

Scottish summertime heralds the arrival of many wonderful things — breathtaking landscapes in full bloom, longer days punctuated with lavender twilights, glittering sunshine (fingers crossed), and strawberry season!

What better way to savour this versatile, heavenly fruit than by enjoying it with one of its most consonant companions: chocolate. Iain has meticulously crafted a selection of exquisite products combining crushed strawberries and his signature gourmet chocolate– each a delectable homage to the unfolding summer season.

Limited Edition Strawberry & Star Anise Velvet Truffle

Nothing could be a more decadent celebration of the beloved summer berry than Iain’s signature “naked” edition of unenrobed Strawberry Velvet Truffles. Infused with real strawberries and sweet star anise, and currently on a promotion of 30% off, this award-winning milk chocolate truffle has never been more tempting.

Previously only available to Michelin Star and AA Rosetted Chefs, Iain has made a strictly limited number of his fruit infused pure ganache truffles in box sizes of 6, 12 and 18. They are only available while stocks last, so have your truffle forks at the ready and don’t miss this taste experience!

Strawberries & Cream : A Love Match

With Wimbledon just around the corner,  The Highland Chocolatier is once again serving up the popular Strawberries and Cream selection box.  A beautifully ornate white and gold round box, filled with Strawberry Velvet Truffles and luxurious White Velvet Hearts.

Winner of the Great Taste Gold Award, the Strawberry Velvet Truffle blends pure fruit coulis ganache with a touch of star anise.  For the cream: Iain’s White Velvet Hearts mix rich white chocolate ganache with decadent triple Madagascan vanilla, delicately encased in a heart shaped shell.

A stunning take on the quintessential summer dessert.

Rolling in Berries

Wonderfully textural and pleasingly tart, Iain’s satchels of whole raspberries and strawberries rolled in white chocolate make an ideal treat — a sweet sidekick for rugged summer hikes and serene garden parties alike.

Taste of Christmas at The Highland Chocolatier

Cold Makes Us Nostalgic and Nostalgia Makes Us Warm

Christmas and New Year for me has always been the priceless time when family and friends get together and bask in the glow of the season. How many priceless memories centre around this time of year for each of us–the atmosphere, the anticipation, and the joy. Since my family opened the business 12 years ago, Christmas has become the one week of the year when I close the chocolate kitchen, and that I get to be on holiday at the same time as my brother, Calum, who is my Senior Chocolatier.

For me it is also a particularly beautiful and jovial time in Scotland— especially with the colourful celebration of Hogmanay to brighten up the bleak winter weather. Above all, the season offers a poignant chance to laugh, reflect, and share from the heart—and in that spirit, I offer some Christmas selections, and my warmest wishes for a lovely holiday.

Make It a December to Remember

With such heartfelt nostalgia surrounding it, winter and the holiday season inspires the evocative limited edition Velvet Truffle—The Festive Spice. 

The Festive Spice Velvet Truffle is the chocolate equivalent of a Christmas Pudding. Whether in an exquisite selection box of enrobed Velvet Truffles and pralines, or in an ornate box of unenrobed cocoa-dusted Velvet Truffles, the Festive Spice makes the perfect petits fours for after Christmas dinner, adding an unforgettable sparkle to the taste of Christmas. 

 

 

St. Andrew’s Day with Scotland’s Most Awarded Chocolatier

Wednesday, November 29th, 2017

St. Andrews Day at Iain Burnett The Highland Chocolatier

The 30th of November is St Andrew’s Day. A day when Scots and Scots-at-heart pay homage to the patron saint of Scotland, and celebrate our national day.

St. Andrew’s Day is usually commemorated with special events and celebrations honouring Scottish heritage, history and culture.

What better way to mark the day than by indulging in artisan chocolate, handmade by Scotland’s most awarded chocolatier.

The White Raspberry Velvet Truffle was crafted by Iain as a tribute to his Scottish roots, and is modelled after the traditional Scottish dessert, Cranachan.

Typically this classic dessert is a mixture of whipped cream, whisky, honey and fresh raspberries, with toasted oatmeal.

The White Raspberry Velvet Truffle blends only fresh Scottish ingredients, combining crushed raspberry and creamy white chocolate ganache, and sweetened with Scottish heather honey.

While none of Iain’s chocolates contain alcohol, they are expertly matched to pair beautifully with a number of favourite whiskeys and gins.

Iain recommends the Ledaig 15 Year Old malt whisky as the companion to The White Raspberry Velvet Truffle.

Slàinte mhath!
