Burgundy Hosp Brings Royce’

One of the world’s finest chocolates, Royce’, makes its way from Japan to the Indian shores this month with the opening of its flagship store at Palladium in Lower Parel, Mumbai. Burgundy Hospitality is the partner for this unique brand of artisanal chocolates in India.

Royce's signature product is Nama, a cube of truffle-like ganache, which is creamy and moist. Ghana Bitter, Mild Cacao, Champagne and Ecuador Sweet are a few of the flavours. All these varieties are made of fresh cream sourced from the farms near Royce's factory in Hokkaido.

The brand is not only known for its unique ingredients and approach to chocolate-making, but also for its eye for detail. Each serving of Nama comes with spatula, which is to be used when eating this sensitive chocolate. Every box is packed before it leaves the store in a thermal bag along with a frozen cooling gel pack, to ensure that the product does not melt on your way home.

Ms. Avani Raheja, founder, Burgundy Hospitality, said, “There are only a handful of brands that garner a religious, cult-like following; Royce’ chocolate is one of these few. When I first tried Royce’, I knew right away that this chocolate was special, and that it must not be kept a secret any longer. Bringing Royce’ to India is our attempt to introduce for the first time in India, truly innovative, high-quality and fresh chocolates, but more importantly we would like to share this secret with other chocolate lovers across the country.”

Mr. Samir Gadhok, founder, Burgundy Hospitality, said, “Indians are chronically underserved when it comes to consistently fresh and well-crafted chocolate. We are excited to fill that void with the launch of Royce’, one of the world’s most revolutionary chocolate experiences. pace, luxury and a touch of Japanese quirkiness.”

The brand was founded in 1983 in Sapporo, the capital city of Japan’s northernmost island, Hokkaido. Over the years, it has grown from Hokkaido’s best-kept secret to an international phenomenon and offers a wide array of fresh chocolate products that are rich in flavours, textures, complexity and uniqueness.

The brand has also introduced the Criollo Chocolate in India. This is made from Criollo beans, one of the world’s rarest cacao beans sourced all the way from Lake Maracaibo, Venezuela.
