‘Social media is crucial in getting your pink truffles to conquer the world,’ says Charbonnel et Walker’s chairman and the Queen’s favourite chocolatier, Galvin Weston. Global internet domination aside, the Royal Warrant-holding brand is also omnipresent in its offline form, and building on its long legacy of doing business since 1875 continues to make appearances at major social events in the HNW sphere (happily, its champagne truffles graced Spear’s recent Pall Mall party). The firm makes chocolates for every occasion — and they fly off the shelves at Fortnum & Mason, John Lewis, Waitrose and Harrods. The signature range is infused with champagne and costs £22 a box.
