The artisan Highland Chocolatier in Perthshire has received every single one of the 7 awards for chocolate truffles at the British Finals of the International Chocolate Awards.

Master Chocolatier Iain Burnett said “avoiding additives and using only natural ingredients creates painstaking challenges every week for the team to create the velvety textures and flavours, so this award is reassurance that chocolate critics from around the world can taste the difference! But we’re also receiving that award on behalf of the farmers of the local cows that produce the fresh cream and the cocoa farmers on São Tomé island.”

The Raspberry & hint of Black Pepper Velvet Truffle received Gold in the flavoured dark truffle category, with the Espresso Mocha Velvet Truffle and the Rose Velvet Truffle both tying with Silver. All of the top 3 awards for flavoured white truffles went to the White Lime & hint of Chilli Velvet Truffle, Caramel & Twist of Liquorice Velvet Truffle, and Passion Fruit & Mango Velvet Truffle.

Congratulations Iain!
