Butlers Irish Chocolates

Butlers Irish Chocolates is one of the most popular chocolate brands in our range of Christmas hampers, since you cannot find much better chocolate than the chocolate from Butlers Irish Chocolates. The brand has been around for decades, but what makes their chocolates stand out from the others in our Brisbane gift hampers?

The Butlers Irish Chocolates brand was founded by Marion Butler in 1932. Even though the name Butlers Irish Chocolates would come later, the original “Chez Nous Chocolates”, handcrafted by Marion Butler, put the chocolate brand on the proverbial map. The company was eventually sold to the Sorensen family, who named the company after its creator and expanded the company internationally.

Butlers Irish Chocolates stand out from most commercially produced chocolates because of their handmade quality. Ever since the company was created in 1932, the owners of the company have maintained the quality Marion Butler demanded for her chocolate and this enabled the company to grow to a true international enterprise.

Today, Butlers Irish Chocolates has several affiliates all over the world, which all produce the chocolates according to the standards the owners of the company have set. The company has also created a number of chocolate cafes across the globe, where chocolate lovers can try both the latest and most popular chocolates from Butlers Irish Chocolates. Of course, chocolate lovers can also head to one of the cafes to try their delicious chocolate milks!

Chocolate lovers do not have to travel to Ireland to try the outstanding chocolates from Butlers Irish Chocolates though, because you can easily get them from one of our Brisbane gift hampers. Delicious Butlers Irish Chocolates can be found in multiple categories, which includes gourmet hampers and chocolate hampers. So select your favourite Brisbane gift hampers today to try Butlers Irish Chocolates for yourself, or choose one of our Brisbane gift hampers for a chocolate-loving recipient!

Willie’s Cacao

Traditional chocolates are great, but sometimes you want something unique to sink your teeth into. That something unique can also be found at the Hamper Emporium, more specifically by trying one of the Willie’s Cacao chocolate squares in our Brisbane gift hampers!

The concept of Willie’s Cacao chocolates revolves around one thing – adventure. The owner of Willie’s Cacao, William Harcourt-Cooze, decided to buy Hacienda El Tesoro in the cloud forest of Venezuela, the location that was going to be the foundation of an international chocolate manufacturer with some very unique chocolates.

For Willie’s Cacao, chocolate is all about flavour, so you could easily compare one of their chocolate squares to a fine wine. The flavours of their chocolate are heavily dependent on climate, soil and even the genetics of the cacao bean, so not matter which chocolate square you try from this chocolate manufacturer, each chocolate is going to be a unique experience.

The cacao beans used by Willie’s Cacao also make a huge difference in the flavour their chocolates can provide to consumers. Willie’s Cacao uses Criollo and Tinitario beans, which do not provide the large amounts of chocolate that other manufacturers try to obtain, but a smaller batch of chocolate with a lot more flavour. In other words, Willie’s Cacao puts the emphasis on quality instead of quantity.

Of course, the unique flavours of Willie’s Cacao chocolates do not depend on the use of exotic and unique cacao beans alone, but also the processes that are used to create the chocolates in the first place. To create their delicious chocolates, Willie’s Cacao depends on three different processes: the nature of the cacao bean, how they are harvested and how they are fermented and dried.

Some of the chocolates from Willie’s Cacao have also been certified as organic, although this does not apply to all the chocolate squares from this brand. The main concern of Willie’s Cacao is the use of natural ingredients, so none of the beans used in the chocolates have been produced with the use of chemicals. However, fully organic products need to meet very strict standards, so not the entire range of chocolate squares by this brand is certified as such. That being said, Willie’s Cacao believes that the best ingredients are not processed, which means that chocolates from this brand are going to be a lot more natural than most brands you can find on the market today.

Last but not least, when you purchase one of our Christmas hampers containing Willie’s Cacao chocolates, you also support fair trade. Willie’s Cacao ethically sources its cacao beans and they are obtained directly from the farmer, so not middleman is used during this process, which could otherwise demand unfair prices from the local farmers.

Not only the cacao beans obtained by Willie’s Cacao are considered fair trade, because there are other products that can be used during the production process, for example raisins. All products used in the production process of Willie’s Cacao chocolates are fair trade, so if you want to support this company, be sure to obtain one of our gift hampers with these adventurous chocolates.
