Online Revolution

It feels like it’s been around forever, but this year marks the 25th anniversary of the Internet.
Remember how we all got along without it? No, neither do I.

The web has always been important to us at Hotel Chocolat. You might not know this, but we started out as one of Britain’s first-ever online retailers, or ‘e-tailers’, pre-dating even the likes of Amazon or eBay.

Our chocolates were first available to buy online way back in 1993, a decade before we opened our first Hotel Chocolat shop in Watford in 2004.

All of which makes the Internet’s silver anniversary the perfect time to launch our brand new Tasting Club website, now online.

We’ve created an easy-to-use website that makes managing your Tasting Club membership refreshingly simple. Existing members won’t have to change a thing. Your Tasting Club login will work just as before, transferring your details to a new, personalised account that works for both the Tasting Club and Hotel Chocolat.

You’ll be able to update your details or change your selections whenever you want, view new chocolates and seasonal specials before anyone else, and browse our menus in more detail, with a tempting individual picture and description of each chocolate.

You’ll also be able to score chocolates online and see how other Tasting Club members have rated them. The Tasting Club now has a new, 5-star scoring system as well.

And I’m really happy that members can use Live Chat to talk online with our customer service team without having to use the phone. It’s all about making life easier.

To say that Angus Thirlwell is passionate about chocolate would be an understatement because, as he willingly admits, it’s more of an obsession. Together with his business partner, Peter Harris, he founded Hotel Chocolat in 2004 with two specific aims – to make chocolate that really excites the senses and to make that chocolate widely available.
