We are delighted to announce the launch of our first Dorset collaboration of 2020..Dorset Mure Royale!

The recipe has been created by Tim, our chief chocolatier with the gorgeous Just Blackberry liqueur from the new range of Mure liqueurs created by former Masterchief champion & Dorset based chef, Mat Follas. Mat launched his Mure liqueurs in 2019, and also won a Gold Great Taste Award for the blackberry version, & we got in touch last year to discuss working together. 

This rather beautiful chocolate is the result - our interpretation of a Kir Royale cocktail except this time, it is with Mure blackberry liqueur blended with marc de champagne and our 67% Madagascar origin dark chocolate. Tim has also added  a touch of thyme for a herbal top note. It is a water based ganache which really allows the deep fruit notes to sing with a warming finish on the palette from the liqueur and marc de champagne.

Each handcrafted chocolate is decorated with natural colours (in glorious purple of course) and is also dairy-free and vegan-friendly - happy days indeed.

We are all thrilled with the result, as is Mat and this new chocolate will be on sale in our chocolate houses from Saturday 1st February 2020, is available to order as a box of 9 online and also features in our Valentine and ongoing selection boxes.
