These were one of my favorite finds from my buying trip in August. The Louis Sherry chocolate tins arrived yesterday afternoon and we opened up those boxes lickety split. Not only are their truffles divine, but the tins are incredibly cool. I see vintage ones here & there when out and about antique shopping, so they make a great keepsake after the chocolates have been devoured.
A bit about the company from their literature:
In 1881, Louis Sherry introduced the French chocolate-making tradition to New York and quickly established a reputation for excellence. Sherry’s dedication to quality is present today in every truffle we craft. Only the highest quality ingredients, ethically sourced from Ecuador to Madagascar to the Caribbean coast of Venezuela, are used by our master chocolatier. In celebration of our heritage, each array of chocolates is packaged in the traditional Sherry’s tin, a recast of the original, now more than 100 years old. “When it’s a matter of good taste–Sherry’s.” Such was our founder’s promise 130 years ago. We strive to live up to it today.
Mister Sherry worked for the very same thing we strive for each and every day at Watson Kennedy.
