What started as a part time business has grown way beyond my original intention to 'just supply the chocolate shop'. Little did I know then, that I'd end up becoming the chocolatier as well, in 2010!
Had great fun growing Isle of Skye Chocolate with a fab team of three, changing from a high street shop to a wholesale business supplying all of Skye and Lochalsh with sea-salted caramels in a milk chocolate truffle or tangy raspberry & balsamic cream ganache dipped in 70% dark chocolate, to name but a few from the delicious chocolate range!
Having turned sixty in 2014, I decided it was time to hand over the business to someone who would take it to the next stage. It was a great pleasure then to sell Isle of Skye Chocolate to local businessman Angus MacRuray, former owner of the highly successful Skye Brewery.
And so it's come full circle, and I am enjoying being back 'hands on' in the business, making bubbling aromatic pots of tablet, and creating and launching our latest product - Cuillin Mint Caketm.
