The Gin Collection Launch

We are SO excited to reveal the launch of our brand new range of gin flavoured chocolate bars! This beautiful collection was inspired by Linda’s love of Gin & Tonic – and what a better way to celebrate the nation’s favourite beverage than to combine it with our creamy milk chocolate?

 

The Gin Collection Story

 

Our production team have spent the last few months perfecting this recipe, ensuring that the flavour combinations and quantities were absolutely spot on – and after plenty of taste testing (much to our misfortune), we were ready to start designing the packaging, so that these stunning bars not only tasted amazing, but looked fabulous too!

 

Our designer, Lisa, drew the designs by hand; then added the splashes of colour (which we think were just right for a gin collection) to create a real ‘pop’. After much design development; we finally decided on our final packaging, and it was ready to be printed!

The perfected bars and final wrappers were then sent to our wonderful packing team, who foiled, wrapped and packed each bar by hand by hand, with love – and as you can imagine, it was quite difficult not to bite into one of these delicious bars as they went!

 

The Gin Collection Flavours

 

One of the best parts of launching this range has got to have been choosing the flavours! With so many to choose from, it had to be down to our very own Gin Connoisseur, Linda, who particularly enjoys a classic Gin & Tonic; but has also dabbled in other flavours like rhubarb, and wanted to showcase how the stunning flavours of gin could combine with fruits and chocolate. We can certainly say that it works very well – but don’t take our word for it, you’ll have to try it and see for yourself!
