We are sisters who started experimenting with chocolate in our kitchen in Limerick in the Spring of 2002. We began selling at Limerick Market and got a reputation for being specialists in dark chocolate. When we moved into our Limerick workshop and started supplying to Ireland's fabulous independent delicatessens, we vowed to maintain our artisan production methods and commitment to innovation. We continue to work like chefs, making everything in small batches using fresh ingredients.
We recently moved to County Kerry to join forces with another artisan chocolate
company, Skelligs Chocolate. By bringing our two distinct but
complementary ranges of chocolate together we can offer an unparalleled
choice to chocolate lovers. We also get an amazing view of the
sea from our little factory so if you are in the area call in
We still get excited when we discover an amazing taste combination or when we find a batch of oranges with the perfect zest. The blend of ingredients in our spice chocolate still has the power to amaze us with the effect it has. Freshly toasted hand crushed cardamoms, freshly grated root ginger and a tickle of heat from the dried jalapeņo chilli combine to warm the senses and capture you in a moment of pure, unadulterated pleasure!
We pride ourselves in allowing our imaginations to wander when it comes to flavouring
the chocolate, testing new ingredients and different combinations
to create intriguing sensations and harmonies with the chocolate:
lime zest and black pepper, dark chocolate infused with Norway
Spruce pine needles and christmas spices, sea salt. At the same
time we give traditional flavours a new lease of life with our
approach to the quality of the ingredients. Our vanilla chocolate
is infused with copious amounts of succulent Madagascan Vanilla
pods. Our zests are freshly grated for each batch giving an
incomparable purity and liveliness of flavour. When a chocolate
has been made with such care we feel it deserves to be wrapped
with the same individual attention. That is why we use vibrant
packaging and hand wrap every chocolate.

We will never get over how lovely it is to hear people say nice things about our chocolates. Our motivation for making them is to give people an experience they'll enjoy, so it's good to know when it works!
"The best chocolates in Ireland"
"One bite and you are ruined; ordinary chocolate doesn't cut it afterwards".

"Oh f**k. Oh s**t. Wow."
Mathew Horne ( The Catherine Tate Show)
"Dark chocolate with its complex flavours and textures is where it's at! Spices certainly come to mind, but also nuts, minerals, fruit and even warm, Christmas- cake tastes. Not quite the sort of experience you are going to get from your average sweet counter"
Hugo Arnold 'The Art of Darkness' The Irish Times
