Pembertons Victorian Chocolates
The Welsh Chocolate Farm
A tattered old cookbook, tied with string and stuffed with old and well-tried confectionery recipes, was the inspiration for Pemberton’s Victorian Chocolates. The book belonged to the Pemberton family and the recipes went back to Alice Pemberton and her old sweet kitchen. Alices grandson, Alan Jones, and his wife Elizabeth were inspired by the Victorian wisdom and started their chocolate factory in Wales. Over the years the recipes have been modified, and Elizabeth went to Belgium to hone her skills with some of Europe’s top chocolatiers. The business is now moving to the next generations with both daughters Emily and Jessica taking active roles within the family business. "I suppose the idea of making chocolates on an old hill farm – miles from the nearest town – seems a bit silly. All I can say is that it works" says Alan Jones. The Welsh Chocolate farm has earned a solid reputation for exceptional chocolates, as the string of top awards testifies. Chocolate lovers from all Britain and the rest of the world clamour for Pembertons chocolates because they’re excellent value. Everybody claims they use only the best ingredients….Pemberton’s actually do! “The unsung magic ingredient of chocolate is cocoa butter which melts on the tongue at one degree below body heat and which, when sweetened with subtlety and flavoured with skill, makes a most memorable eating experience" says Alan Jones. When it comes to chocolate, its hard work keeping up with the Joneses.
