Master Chocolatier Launches Chocolate Tasting Flights

Master Chocolatier Launches Chocolate Tasting Flights

Master Chocolatier Iain Burnett, the Highland Chocolatier, announces a UK first with the official launch of his unique, audio-guided, Chocolate Tasting Flights.

Artisan Chocolate Insights

Much more than a selection of chocolates, foodies will delight in this unforgettable gastronomic experience. Sitting down to a “flight” of Iain Burnett’s exquisite and international award-winning chocolates laid out on a tasting mat, the listener is given an informative view of the Master Chocolatier’s experience as an acclaimed truffle specialist and then staged insights into each of five very different artisan chocolates. Skillfully presented, Iain leaves room for us to come to our own conclusions based on our individual tastes.

Both highly informative and luxurious on the palate, we are given a chance to savour and unravel the incredible, complex flavours and textures of Iain Burnett's signature Velvet Truffles and Velvet Pralines. These astonishing chocolates have received over 40 awards including World Gold at the International Chocolate Awards – twice.

“… a Natural Evolution”

Iain Burnett is somewhat of a specialist in his field. He has spent over a decade creating hundreds of chocolate pairing flights for Master Distillers and Champagne Houses and seen how much people enjoy learning from a carefully arranged sequence. “It’s a natural evolution that gourmet couverture chocolate, itself like fine wine, should have its own pure chocolate flight,” he explains.

“I love to see people’s reactions when they first experience the Velvet Truffles and share with them why and how they are made. Obviously I can’t meet everybody, but these new Tasting Flights will let people taste a selection I have chosen especially and hear in my own words why – delicious, educational and hopefully fun!”
