Long-established chocolatiers selling a traditional range online, wholesale and from a chocolate shop on Brodick Bay seafront.
The Arran Chocolate Factory, trading as James of Arran, has been producing handmade chocolates for almost 20 years. They use chocolate containing no less than 54% cocoa solids paired with cream from Arran Dairies, and they supply retailers, corporate customers and bespoke orders including wedding favours throughout Scotland. Chocolates and sweets can also be ordered from their online shop and via Taste of Arran, and the traditional Parisian cream line from Gordon & Durward. The company's display consists of a wide variety of dark, milk and white chocolates, bars, pralines, truffles and caramels, with flavours ranging from classic strawberry cream to peanut butter and jam. The chocolatiers can be seen at work at the shop on Brodick Bay seafront, where visitors can choose from the whole selection.
