Many Scots agree there is nothing as delicious as a drink of your favourite whisky, and many Scots also agree there is nothing as delicious as the taste of chocolate.

Iain Burnett, of the Highland Chocolatier has hand crafted his chocolate sensations to be bring these two worlds together. Each chocolate has been designed to accompany some of Scotland’s favourite whiskies with the flavours enhancing the sweet, smoky and individual flavours of each glass.

The master chocolatiers have worked tirelessly to pair their bespoke range with the most popular whiskies in the country. The team have worked in collaboration with some of Scotland’s finest distilleries such as Cardhu, Dalwhinnie, Dewars Aberfeldy, Glenfiddich, Knockando to bring this luxury experience to you.

The range includes sumptuous chocolates with unique flavour combinations; the Orange Velvet Truffle pairs perfectly with Mortlach 18 Year Old and the Ginger Velvet Truffle has been painstakingly matched with Mortlach Rare Old. Other whiskies our chocolates pair with include the following:
