  • Cocoa Beer

Our distinctive, English, small-batch beer, brewed with traditional Fuggles hops and the warming flavour of cocoa shells to create a complex, rounded ale of real character, with pleasing savoury bitterness and notes of tobacco, cocoa and coffee. Our cocoa shells are left over from making chocolate, but they’re just too good to throw away. We hope you agree.
Best served lightly chilled.

4.7% vol.

  • Cocoa Gin

A classically cool and crisp English dry gin infused with the flavours of our Rabot Estate in Saint Lucia – lemon zests, juniper, coriander, mineola and angelica, with peppery notes of roasted cocoa shells and the rich creaminess of crushed macadamia nuts. Made by expert artisanal English distillers working in small batches using the copper-pot stills.


  • Almonds & Nibs

A fabulous combination of pure ingredients from our chocolatier’s store cupboard: fine Marcona almonds and roasted cocoa nibs from Trinidad, together with a pinch of salt and a little almond oil.
The perfect accompaniment for aperitifs, cocktails, wine, beer, and sherry.


  • Gift Wrapping

Hotel Chocolat provides a luxury gift wrapping service for that extra special finishing touch. Gifts can be enclosed in a stylish gift bag or ribbon-tied hamper, and sent with a personalised gift card. Gift cards are free of charge, whilst

About Hotel Chocolat

Luxury British cocoa grower and chocolatier, Hotel Chocolat, was founded in 2004 to make exciting chocolate with three guiding principles – authenticity, originality and ethics – which remain central to the brand’s success today. With its Rabot Estate cocoa plantation in Saint Lucia, a chocolate manufacturing facility in Cambridgeshire and stores across the UK and internationally, Hotel Chocolat occupies a unique space – being able to link all aspects of chocolate from the tree to the consumer. The company has stores and cocoa-cafes in major cities and market towns throughout the UK, the USA and Denmark. They also have concessions in John Lewis stores nationwide and in David Jones, Australia. In 2011

Hotel Chocolat opened a boutique hotel in the grounds of Rabot Estate on Saint Lucia, which is also home to Boucan Restaurant and its pioneering menu of ‘cacao cuisine’. In 2013 Hotel Chocolat opened two cocoa cuisine restaurants inspired by Boucan - Rabot 1745 in London’s Borough Market and Roast+Conch in Leeds. Both restaurants reconnect the world of cocoa growing with the luxury of eating it.
