Yorkshire based businesses, Whitakers Chocolates & Whittaker’s Gin, have teamed up to create a boozy chocolate treat.

Whitakers Chocolates, who have been master chocolatiers in Skipton for over 130 years, have teamed up with Harrogate’s well known craft gin producer, Whittaker’s Gin, to create a delicious combination of dark chocolate Pink Gin fondant creams.

Whitakers Chocolates have been making fondant creams for over 60 years, using the same family recipe! These new chocolates boast Whitakers Chocolates signature rich dark chocolate and creamy fondant centres which are infused using Whittaker’s ‘Pretty in Pink’ Gin – making the perfect partnership.

William Whitaker, managing director of Whitakers Chocolates, said: “I am thrilled to be working alongside a fellow family run Yorkshire business such as Whittaker’s Gin. For us, it wasn’t just the synergy with the name, although it is great, but working with another local business to create something special and all made right here in Yorkshire.”

Toby Whittaker, managing director of Whittaker’s Gin, said: “We have been looking to work with Whitakers Chocolates for some time, so when the opportunity arose to help produce a gin related chocolate product we jumped at the chance.

“Our ‘Pretty in Pink’ Gin really is the perfect partner for these dark chocolate creams. We use our award winning 42 per cent Pink Particular which has dried Hibiscus Flowers within to add that vibrant pink colour you’ll see when tasting the chocolates.”
