When the Montezuma’s tasting trolley comes to town…
Every year as Christmas approaches our Business to Business team are tasked with organising and attending our favourite stockists, armed with bags of chocolate and a big smile to host tasting events. Every year we fight amongst ourselves to be the lucky representative who gets to visit our own personal favourite shops.
We thought we would tell you a little about our favourite retailers and why.
Liberty – Who doesn’t love a day out at Liberty? One of the most iconic buildings in London, housing the most exquisite selection of brands under one roof. If you haven’t been to their Chocolate Shop- it really is a treat, as is their top floor which at this time of year is transformed into the “Christmas Shop”. Liberty has been a wonderful customer for many years and we love supporting them with a tasting event and meeting some of their lovely customers from all over the world.
When are we there next- 16th December from 12pm.
John Lewis – With 47 stores, John Lewis is a brilliant showcase for the Montezuma’s range. Being a small team we unfortunately can’t get to all 47, but every year we attend around 8 different John Lewis stores to hold Montezuma’s tastings. This year is no different, and we cannot wait to start the John Lewis events. As well as our Christmas range, customers will also be able to taste our new Cocktail Collection including the delicious Margarita Truffle! What strikes us every time we visit a John Lewis store is how loyal the staff and customers are, so friendly and happy to be there and enjoy what John Lewis has to offer.
When are we there next- John Lewis Stratford 23rd November and Peter Jones, Sloane Square 25th November
Selfridges – About as iconic at Liberty, but much bigger, Selfridges can really excite the senses (and credit cards) all day long! Our personal favourite part of Selfridges is the Food Hall; the smells, the variety, the colour- it is just wonderful! There is always a theme or event happening in The Food Hall to entice you to try and buy something new. Selfridges launched a wonderful area called “The Chocolate Library” a few years ago where they feature a chocolate brand for every letter of the Alphabet- it’s so great to see how diverse chocolate is and obviously we are thrilled that Montezuma’s and our Kingdom brand feature in this.
When are we there next- Selfridges, Oxford Street 9th December 12pm.
Wholefoods Market – If you aren’t in London you may not know the Wholefoods brand, but it really is the most wonderful “supermarket”, if you can call it that! The fruit and vegetables are displayed to perfection, with mountains of peppers co-ordinated by colour, and every other fruit or vegetable you could wish for! You can make your own muesli from every type seed, dried fruit or nut, and you can grind your own coffee beans from the origin and strength you require. It’s like a theatre every time you visit! As well as picking up your groceries, Whole Foods Market is a great place to eat- with so many choices from all around the world it is such a treat for the eyes (and stomach!). Originating in the USA, Wholefoods have made a name for themselves in London and beyond with 9 stores now in the UK. You will find a huge selection of Montezuma’s including all our best selling Organic Bars and our seasonal ranges too.
When are we there next- Wholefoods, High Street Kensington 21st October 2016
Please pop in to one of our tastings if you can and if your local deli or farmshops isn’t stocking Montezuma’s and should be, give us a shout, we would love to make contact with them! E-mail us on firstname.lastname@example.org
