Our third Copenhagen store, opening mid-August Copenhagen

After the opening of our new airside boutique at the airport, we’re thrilled to announce that we’re opening a third Copenhagen store in the historical and cultural suburb of Frederiksberg.

The Frederiksberg Centre currently has 65 stores and is situated by the metro station, less than 10 minutes from Copenhagen city centre. You will find us on the ground floor just by the entrance.

Frederiksberg Garden, with the beautiful neo-classical castle, is also close by.

“It’s a very sophisticated city and has a great reputation for food. We knew we’d have quite a bit to do to win over the locals, but we’re really pleased with the response and now have a good following there,” says Hotel Chocolat’s CEO Angus Thirwell.

Our world of rare and vintage cocoa will soon be getting even bigger, with the launch of four new chocolate grades showcasing some hitherto untouched South and Central American cocoa varieties.

We’ve created two new chocolate bars from local varieties in Northern Colombia – the Cienaga and the Aracatica beans – both from Sierra Nevada and filled with fantastic character.

From Honduras, we present the full-bodied and fruity Mayan Red 70% Dark from cocoa grown close to the famous Mayan Copán ruins. And from Nicaragua, we have the Chuno 85% Dark – A complex, dark and mysterious cocoa, with a background of liquorice, bitter coffee and a smooth roasted note.
