Welcome to Xocolate. We're a family-run chocolatier based in Carlisle, Cumbria.
Our name, Xocolate, is derived from the Aztec word for chocolate, Xocolatl. The Mayans and Aztecs created a drink from the Cacao bean, mashing the bean paste with water. Xocolatl itself originates from two other words; 'xococ' which means sour, and 'atl' meaning water. We pronounce Xocolate as 'zokk-oh-latt'; or you can think of it as Chocolate starting with an X, but pronounced with a Z!
All the chocolates we produce are hand-made in small batches, using high quality ingredients and fine Belgian chocolate. You can buy our chocolates online, through a retailer or directly from us at an event or market.
Because we're small, we can easily produce bespoke chocolates for your own special occasion such as a wedding, anniversary, birthday or even corporate events. Our chocolatier, Michelle, will work with you to develop your own unique collection based upon your personal requirements. Please use the contact form to start the conversation.
We also sell our chocolates wholesale our chocolates, for shops, hotels, guest houses, self catering accommodation and we'd love to hear from you. We deal direct without a distributor, so contact us today to request more information, a price list and samples.
