Eggs with the ‘wow’ factor!

 

Spoil your family and friends this Easter with eye-catching, handcrafted chocolate eggs, Geraldo’s bespoke Easter eggs or some novelty treats for the kids.  There is no doubt that our artisan chocolatiers have gone to town this year with their unusual designs and flavours. Perfect Easter gifts for all the good eggs in your life!

Earlier this year we visited one of our main chocolate suppliers, The Arran Chocolate Factory and got a sneak preview of Jan’s wonderful Easter creations.  These beauties have hopped over the water to Geraldo’s of Largs.  Adults and children alike will love their handcrafted eggs, novelty bunnies and chocolate ducks.  And have you seen James of Arran’s chocolate ‘twins’ on our Facebook page?  Enter our competition for your chance to take them home for Easter.

We also have really unique Easter egg creations from Stas Chocolatier and the ever-popular Chocolate Alchemist with unusual toppings such as nuts, dried fruit pieces, caramel, popcorn and chilli to add texture and a new flavour dimension to the chocolate. For those of you with food allergies or intolerances, we even have the great tasting Moo Free range of eggs.  You won’t find these in your local supermarket!

With our longer opening hours over Easter, there’s plenty of opportunity to pop in and see our full range of egg-ceptional Easter treats.

Happy Easter everyone!

What’s the best Scottish gin?

Geraldo's gin selection 3

Geraldo’s gin range!

The World Gin Awards were announced earlier this week with Hernö Gin from Sweden taking the prestigious title of The World’s Best Gin 2017.  And with the Scottish Gin Awards being launched in September this year, we were wondering, what do you think is the best Scottish gin?

Scotland now produces over 70% of the gin consumed in the UK and exports are predicted to outsell Scotch whisky by 2020.  That is huge!  In fact over the festive period Brits spent a whopping £136 million on gin.  They certainly had a gin-tastic Christmas!

In Geraldo’s of Largs we now stock over 40 artisan gins in various sizes.  We have a gin from every corner of Scotland; each with their distinct taste and their own blend of local botanicals.  Come and discover your best Scottish gin!

In fact, what better way to try a wide range of gins than to come to Geraldo’s Gin Fest in November 2017?  Last year was a sell-out success with lots of happy gin fans and even those who were new to gin found something that they loved.  Tickets will be on sale very soon!  Sign up to our newsletter to be one of the first to hear about it.
