About Us

Welcome fine chocolate lovers!

Our passion is creating the finest filled chocolates, caramels, pralines and truffles using fresh ingredients and fine couverture chocolate. We create delicate, imaginative flavour combinations and have been rated amongst the world's finest.

A passion for flavour

Our chocolates are made for lovers of great cocoa who enjoy fresh, intriguing flavour combinations and chocolates that are less sweet and more natural tasting than mass produced alternatives.


We’re passionate about making all our centres by hand using fresh fruit purées, natural flavourings, nuts, herbs and spices. We’re inspired by classic and contemporary flavours, combining them to create the most mouth-watering and refined chocolate taste experiences.


We're lucky enough to have been recognised by the most respected taste buds in chocolate, having won many awards for our chocolates and bars  from the Academy of Chocolate and the International Chocolate Awards.

Winchester Cocoa Company has been named Grand Champion in the Great British Food Awards 2022.

Shirley Aubrey, Grand Final Judge and Food Buying Manager at Harvey Nichols, said "There was one product that simply stole the show: Winchester Cocoa Company’s Fresh Chocolate Selection. Prettily crafted, innovatively flavoured, and simply presented, it hit all the credentials that we were looking for. We loved these melt-in-your-mouth chocolates. The perfect gift, a treat for yourself and for sharing, these chocolates are really special"

Ethical and Sustainable Chocolate

Ethical, Sustainable and Delicious Chocolate

We use the finest quality chocolate. Our main supplier is Felchlin. Their Grand Cru range uses noble varieties of cocoa bean from single regions to create chocolate with distinctive flavour and excellent character. Felchlin chocolate is sourced ethically and sustainably - Where possible using direct relationships with farmers and farmer’s cooperatives.

We also use chocolate from wonderful British craft producer Pump Street Chocolate, who make some of the finest chocolate in Europe.

Quality and Locality

We don't insist on Fairtrade certification but look to purchase all our key ingredients from local suppliers or companies that can demonstrate a responsible and ethical approach to their suppliers and the environment. For example Billingtons supply our unrefined sugar, our cream comes from an organic farm in Wiltshire and Felchlin pay above Fair Trade prices to their cocoa bean growers and use long term contracts.

We love great British produce and try to use it where we can. Our main cream supplier has an organic Guernsey herd and hails from just down the road in Wiltshire. Other local suppliers include Summerdown mint, tea blends from Char teas, coffee from Winchester Coffee Roasters and local craft spirit producers including Winchester Distillery
