Hotel Chocolat Ltd. (made by the English Spirit Company), Royston, Hertfordshire, England, UK.


Hotel Chocolat, although it has gone through several name changes across the years, was started in 1987 by Brits Angus Thirlwell and Peter Harris. They began making chocolate mints before moving into bespoke boxes of chocolate, becoming one of the first online businesses in 1993 and setting up a Chocolate Tasting Club in 1998. With this growing success they opened their first retail shop in 2004 and now have over 75 outlets across the UK and are preparing to go global.

In 2006 they bought Rabot Estate a 250-year old Cocoa plantation on St. Lucia in the West Indies building a luxury hotel, restaurant and spa called “Boucan” on the site in 2011 and launching a range of Cocoa based beauty products. Other venues include a Café in London’s Borough Market, two restaurants (Rabot 1745 in London and Roast + Conch in Leeds) and The School of Chocolate in London’s Covent Garden.
