Newsletter – Late Summer Harvest and a Buzzing Chocolate Kitchen

AUGUST 17TH, 2016


The heather is in flower and beekeepers are harvesting this season’s honey – a scene which inspired Iain to create the White Raspberry Truffle.  This truffle celebrates local ingredients with the classic combination of crushed raspberry and creamy white chocolate ganache sweetened with Scottish heather honey.  Interesting fact for the whisky lovers – White Raspberry Truffles have been carefully chosen to pair perfectly with Ledaig 15 Year Old malt whisky.

Healthy Choices

Inspired by the Olympic athletes in Rio? Recharge your batteries after exercise with a hot (or chilled) chocolate instead of a caffeine-loaded soft drink. It may seem indulgent, but as well as energy this provides calcium and other vital vitamins and minerals.
