Taste the differences for yourself with a guided single-origin chocolate tasting of delicious craft chocolate and find out about the craft of bean to bar chocolate makers.

Making Whisky Truffles

With indulgent boozy ganache centre and mouth-watering crumbly coatings, they are a perfect treat to take away with you.

This was an amazing experience. Our guide Sandy was incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic in his presentation, which really made the experience that bit more enjoyable and lighthearted. Would definitely recommend!

Neil, Get Your Guide

This is a superb experience. Fraser led us through the tour brilliantly with a friendly demeanour and excellent knowledge. We also had a good amount of choice in our tastings. Definitely worth a visit.

Les Clark, Google

100% would recommend!! It was great fun, Katie was very energetic and lovely. I would say the tour and everything you get with it is worth way more than what you pay so you really can’t go wrong.

Is a must do when in Edinburgh!!
