The Diamond Jubilee Box369
In honour of Her Majesty the Queen, who with her family has enjoyed the taste of Prestat truffles for decades, we have created a wonderful collection to celebrate the Diamond Jubilee.
On the exquisitely decorated boxes the Coronation Carriage can be seen pulled not by horses but by the Lion and the Unicorn from the Royal Coat of Arms. Look closely and you’ll see the legendary courtier Sir Pink Tights astride the unicorn, of which more in a separate post!
The truffles are deliciously unique and include tropical cinnamon, which brings a flavour of The East to the senses. There is a rich St James’s Coffee crowned with a coffee bean which is the finest example of a coffee centred chocolate you could wish for. A personal favourite is the Pistachio Summer, which has pistachio praline enrobed in white chocolate, with ground pistachio dusting. Sicilian Key Lime has a zesty bite, and feels refreshing on the palate.
Another favourite is the Ginger Fire, which is appropriately named for the flash of peppery ginger which accompanies soft and oozing caramel enrobed in deep dark chocolate that completes the perfect triumvirate of flavours. Other caramel truffles in the box include the Sweet Sea Salt, which sounds oxymoronic, but is in fact a perfect taste combination, sweet and salt offsetting each other to delight the taste buds.
Speaking of delighting the taste buds, a highlight of the box is definitely the Orange and Frankincense. Orange oil and Frankincense has been infused in butter, cream and chocolate to create an aromatic truffle which leaves a wonderful aftertaste (and leaves you wanting a box of these in themselves!)
A Diamond Jubilee Box wouldn’t be complete without a classic Earl Grey flavoured chocolate. A creamy chocolate ganache is infused with Bergamot oil and further coated in milk chocolate. The taste is classic and instantly recognisable as one of England’s favourite drinks.
These are just a selection of fine chocolates that make up our Diamond Jubilee Box. Celebrate Her Majesty’s glorious reign with a box of fine truffles, and enjoy the flavours safe in the knowledge that our Royal Family love them too!
