STILL The Best Truffles in the World

January 15, 2024 by Catriona Anderson

The close of 2023 was an eventful one for the team at Highland Chocolatier, with a record number of orders dispatched for Christmas, and an extraordinary 21 new national and international awards for the Velvet Truffles in the last 3 months alone!

Judges awarded the Dark Velvet Truffle the highest score of any pure dark ganache at all of the regional heats around the globe for the International Chocolate Awards.  That is out of thousands of chocolates from artisan chocolatiers in the UK and 60 other countries.  The Velvet Truffles swept every single truffle award at the British Finals and then, at the World Finals, the Best White Truffle in the World went to the Caramel & Twist of Liquorice Velvet Truffle.

Other Golds, Silvers and Bronzes from both the International Chocolate Awards and the Academy of Chocolate Awards last week went to Velvet Truffles including Raspberry & Black Pepper, White Lime & Chilli, Espresso, Rose, Milk Velvet, Passion Fruit & Mango, Sea Salted Caramel, Chai and Pure Caramelised Ganache.

Additional special awards were made for their outstanding recipes, textures and craftsmanship.
