We’ve teamed up with fellow Yorkshire family business, Whittaker’s Gin to create a boozy chocolate treat.
As most of you know Whitakers Chocolates, have been master chocolatiers in Skipton for over 130 years.
Throughout this time, we have expanded our range to ensure we are always on trend and giving our customers the choice they want.
That’s why this year we have teamed up with Harrogate’s well known craft gin producer, Whittaker’s Gin to create a delicious combination of dark chocolate Pink Gin fondant creams.
We’ve been making fondant creams for over 60 years, using the same family recipe! These new chocolates boast our signature rich dark chocolate and creamy fondant centres which are infused using Whittaker’s ‘Pretty in Pink’ Gin – making the perfect partnership.
William Whitaker, managing director of Whitakers Chocolates, commented “I am thrilled to be working alongside a fellow family run Yorkshire business such as Whittaker’s Gin. For us, it wasn’t just the synergy with the name (although it is great!) but working with another local business to create something special and all made right here in Yorkshire.”
Toby Whittaker, managing director of Whittaker’s Gin added “We have been looking to work with Whitakers Chocolates for some time, so when the opportunity arose to help produce a gin related chocolate product we jumped at the chance.
Our ‘Pretty in Pink’ Gin really is the perfect partner for these dark chocolate creams. We use our award winning 42% Pink Particular which has dried Hibiscus Flowers within to add that vibrant pink colour you’ll see when tasting the chocolates”.
First production commenced in July, with the final product being available for sale from 23rd August onwards.
Anyone wanting to get their hands on these new Pink Gin fondant creams can order from both Whitakers Chocolates and Whittaker’s Gin online shops as well as being stocked in independent retailers across the country.
Watch this space, where I am sure both companies will be making more boozy chocolate combinations!
