Mother and Daughter team, Andrea Huntington and Lucy Elliott, began on a journey in 2010 with just the learned knowledge of an Italian confectioner, a marble slab and a handful of moustache-shaped chocolate molds. Named after Great Granny Creighton, we opened our chocolaterie in the small town of Leighton Buzzard in Spring 2011. The aim was to create a design-led chocolate brand whilst keeping the exclusivity of a hand-made, artisan product. Oh, and to not forget the important details like eye-catching packaging and a sense of style! The original moustache lollies flew off the shelves and we became best known for our exciting chocolate bars and much-coveted edible gifts.
Fast forward a few years, Creighton’s Chocolaterie are now stocked in Liberty London, Fenwick, Brown Thomas and a plenty of high-end independent confectioners and gift stores around the world. In August 2012 (and again in 2014) we were awarded a gold star by the Guild Of Fine Food's Great Taste awards.
At Creighton's Chocolaterie, we make all of our products in small batches, by hand, with the best Belgian chocolate and quality ingredients. Our collections change seasonally, much like a fashion brand, with limited edition flavours and designs appearing amongst our year-round range. Our small team design, make and pack everything in-house to ensure that it always meets our high standards. We approach everything with a light-hearted, British sense of humour so you can always be sure that you will find something to make you smile & your tastebuds tingle in our chocolaterie.
We are proud to support a small team of all women who help us create, hand-make and sell our chocolate to you!
