Luxury British chocolatier and cacao grower Hotel Chocolat is on a mission to make you happy, bringing you chocolate that is more exciting, more witty, more beautiful and – more importantly – made according to their mantra: ‘More Cacao, Less Sugar’. One of the world’s few chocolate makers to directly grow some of their own cacao, on their organic, eco-conscious Saint Lucian cacao farm, Hotel Chocolat connect sustainable cacao agriculture with the hedonism of top-quality chocolate – not just from bean to bar, but roots to wrapper.
Look to Hotel Chocolat for gifts from chocolate boxes to hampers via cacao-infused tipples, beauty and more. They’ve even created a barista-grade in-home drinking chocolate system, The Velvetiser, which melds real grated chocolate with your choice of dairy or plant-based milk to create a velvet-smooth hot chocolate, right from your kitchen.
Drinks & Ices
Let the door fall shut on the hustle and bustle of the outside world. Breathe in the heady scent of hot chocolate. You’ve stepped into your sanctuary: the cacao-fuelled pitstop that is the Drinks & Ices location at your Hotel Chocolat. Set down your shopping bags and sink into your seat, hands wrapped around a restorative drink, your choice of brownie, biscuit or other snack alongside.
Your Trinity Leeds Hotel Chocolat also serves the cacao-infused Ice Cream of the Gods, which is exclusive to select locations. Made with Jersey milk and cream infused with Theobroma cacao nibs – direct translation ‘cacao, food of the gods’ – it’s no wonder it tastes so heavenly…
Ethics & Sustainability
100% of Hotel Chocolat’s cacao is Engaged Ethics. 100% of their packaging will be compostable, reusable or recyclable by 2021. In the meantime, bring your flexible plastic wrappers, rigid plastic trays and Velvetiser single-serve packets to this Hotel Chocolat. They’ll put them through their own responsible recycling system. They’ll take plastics from other brands too – making it easier for all of us to do our bit.
