Mulberry gin chocolate caramels made with local gin from Shakespeare Distillery
Without exaggerating we think this is one of the best flavoured chocolates we have EVER made. The soft butter caramel is flavoured not only with Mulberry Gin but also the mulberries left over from Shakespeare Distillery's production process. Made with real, fresh, truly local ingredients, this is one chocolate not to miss!

In 2019 the Shakespeare Distillery company set us the challenge of coming up with a chocolate for a third variety of their gin- Mulberry. After a lot of thought and experimentation, the Mulberry Gin CARAMEL was conceived. Made with real mulberries these soft, melt in the mouth caramels are divine (or at least we think they are!).
The oval shells themselves are crafted on site using our signature, and sustainably sourced milk and dark chocolate, beautifully tempered by our expert chocolatiers. This gives the chocolates their stunning shiny exterior and deliciously chocolate-y ‘bite’. The top is decorated with an ornate cocoa-butter design for an exquisite finish.
The soft caramel which fills these delicious chocolates is cooked in our kitchen using a blend of our dairy cream and butter sourced from local cows, British sugar, mulberries steeped in gin (leftover from the Mulberry gin production process at Shakespeare Distillery) and Mulberry gin iteself. Each centre is piped while still warm into its milk or dark chocolate shell and left to cool. Once the caramel has cooled, the centres are sealed with a layer of chocolate.
The final stage is for the chocolates to be lovingly packaged and sent to you. Each bag contains four caramels in milk chocolate shells and four in dark chocolate shells.
