On Father’s day, many of us make a special effort to visit our dads and father figures. This special day was introduced from America where we took inspiration from the Mother’s Day celebrations. Fathers are often showered with cards and and gifts to show them just how much we care. Of course, most of our dads have been subject to the “World’s Best Dad!” mug, or, even worse – socks! So, if this year you’re looking for a unique Father’s Day gift, then why not indulge in some gourmet chocolate hand crafted by the Highland Chocolatier?
Whisky and Chocolate
Most of our dads like a dram now and then, and for years we have presented fine bottles of whisky to our Fathers each June as a thank you for all they’ve done for us. Iain Burnett, master chocolatier realised that there is no other luxury like pairing your favourite drink with a perfectly matched chocolate as an accompaniment.
Is your dad passionate about whisky? If so, our whisky tasting box with tasting notes is the ideal Father’s Day gift. The beautifully presented box comprises 20 of our exquisite chocolates all enrobed with single source cocoa from the volcanic island of Säo Tomé in either 70% dark chocolate or caramel noted milk chocolate. Each of the gourmet chocolates for him have been chosen to compliment the top fifty malts from across Scotland.
The flavours include the award winning dark velvet truffle, a flavour so perfect it didn’t need any other flavourings added to ensure it won gold in the 2015 International Chocolate Awards. Our chocolate selection has been paired with these whiskeys, plus many more.

For the far-away father missing the taste of home, what could rouse more nostalgia than the taste of whisky from his homeland and a hand crafted chocolate made in the highlands? What’s more, each of our gifts for a whisky lover can be delivered next day, and we even delivery internationally.
Father’s Day Gourmet Chocolate Hampers
If one box of chocolates simply isn’t enough for the special father or father-figure then one of our luxury chocolate hampers could be just the thing to show your love and appreciation. Each of our hampers is made right here in Scotland, their sturdy black wicker and leather straps showing no signs of the delicate hand crafted treats that are resting inside.
Inside, your dad will be delighted to find our award winning hand crafted chocolates and special extras that can only be found in our hampers, such as the highland chocolatier mug, so that he can enjoy a warming hot chocolate made from our Belgian chocolate flakes, and the chocolate serving platter to be kept as a memento once all the gourmet chocolate has been enjoyed.
