Gourmet chocolates, luxury gifts & exceptional seasonal ranges

Known as The Highland Chocolatier, Iain Burnett is an award winning artisan based in the heart of the Scottish mountains. Iain hand-makes all sorts of spiced pralines and dipped fruits, but it’s the Velvet Truffles® which have brought him world-wide recognition as a Master Chocolatier and Truffle Specialist.

International Award-Winning Truffles

Iain Burnett’s Velvet Truffles have won over 40 prestigious awards ranging from Scotland Food & Drink’s product of the year in 2014 to World Gold at the International Chocolate Awards in 2015 & 2016.

Natural Ingredients

Iain uses a uniquely complex single-origin cocoa from the South Atlantic island of São Tomé – known for its rich volcanic soils. He matches this rare cocoa with crushed fruits, exotic spices and unblended fresh Scottish cream from a single herd of cows in Perthshire to create the Velvet Truffle, famous for its luxuriously smooth texture and delicious flavours. This is all achieved solely by the skill and experience of Iain and his team – NO artificial flavours or preservatives are used.

Specialist Services for Chefs & Hotels

Iain Burnett enjoys working with discerning chefs to develop chocolate desserts and signature petits fours in bespoke flavours.   His client base includes three Michelin Star chefs, Five Star hotels, airline First Class cabins, discerning department stores and some of the world's greatest distillers.  Most recently Iain's Velvet Truffles were judged the Best Dark and Best White Truffle in the World at the International Chocolate Awards by chefs, sommeliers and food critics from 40 countries. Having previously received Gold, Silver and Bronze from the international Academy of Chocolate awards, Iain was nominated for the Spirit of Scotland award for his contribution to the nation's culinary arts, and his enrobed and unenrobed Velvet Truffle® ranges have won a string of awards including multiple Great Taste Award Gold Stars and even Scotland Food and Drink Excellence Foodservice Product of the Year.
