Vintage chocolate backed by an authentic St Lucian production process, located in the heart of Soufriere, St Lucia, a scenic town laying in the shadow of the renowned twin Pitons mountains. Every bar is made by hand by our skilled chocolatiers.
Our Chocolate is hand crafted with organically grown cocoa beans from Nick Troubetzkoy’s Emerald Estate on St Lucia in the West Indies. Three generations of care and local technique have taught us to select exceptional quality cacao beans that are hand picked at their peak maturity and ripeness. The cacao beans are fermented and sun dried on the Estate.
Where does chocolate come from? Actually, it DOES grow on trees, at our Emerald Estate. It all starts with a small tropical tree, the Theobroma cacao, usually called simply, “cacao.” (Pronounced ka-KOW. Theobroma is Greek for “food of the gods.”) Cacao is native to Central and South America, but cultivation of cacao is throughout the tropics.
