Me and my girlfriend arrived 20min late, but the host greeted us and made us comfortable anyway. We tasted various types of finished product, and then the chocolate in various stages throughout its processing. The experience was enjoyable.

Derek conducts a fantastic tour! Very in depth, hands on and informative, but not too much so to overwhelm. He’s a great guide. A comfortably paced and interactive experience with the highlight, obviously, being the chocolate. Be prepared to buy lots on your way out...you’ll...More

My husband and I got to taste some samples of this chocolate as part of a food tour. These chocolates were rich in flavour and colour. We really enjoyed the ones with coconut flavour.

I love dark chocolate so this was right up my street, but even my partner who is not a chocolate fan, really enjoyed it. Derek was so interesting and talked very fluently about the different types of beans used, the different machines and their uses,...More

We did the tour today with 4 others. The owner explains the different stages of production and you get to taste all of the stages, as well as the finished product. Our personal favourites were salted caramel and rum (yum!). Everyone seemed tempted enough to...More

No visit to Barbados is complete without a stop at a factory shop in Bridgetown. The manager is so friendly and chatty. We’ve tried different flavours over the years but rum caramel is a clear winner for us. We’ll definitely be back next time. The...More
