Charbonnel et Walker has been established as Britain’s Master Chocolatiers since 1875. In that year King Edward VII (then Prince of Wales) encouraged Mme Charbonnel to leave the chocolate house of Maison Boissier in Paris. He asked her to join Mrs Walker to establish a fine confectionery house on London’s Bond Street.
Charbonnel et Walker are Royal Warrant holders and have been given this personal mark of recognition as tradesmen who regularly supply goods or service to Her Majesty The Queen. As Royal Warrant holders, Charbonnel et Walker are able to display the Royal Coat of Arm alongside their logo, provided they observe the Lord Chamberlain’s Rules. This privilege is held by few other chocolate companies.
Charbonnel et Walker are renowned for using plain chocolate and only the finest dark couverture. All chocolates are truly English and hand made in the Charbonnel et Walker facilities in Royal Tunbridge Wells. Their experienced chocolatiers have made Charbonnel et Walker chocolates at the factory for many years. All chocolates are hand-made from traditional recipes using original moulds dating back to Mme Charbonnel’s time. Charbonnel et Walker continues to develop their recipes to suit new and exciting markets, whilst still keeping the traditional quality.
The truffle collection is sensational with a selection of the finest chocolate truffles flavoured with delicious ingredients, presented in beautiful cylindrical packaging. The Pink Champagne truffle is a favourite and is filled with decadent Marc de Champagne.
