Grá Chocolates announced opening their first Dublin location at Brown Thomas Grafton Street tomorrow January 28th.
Their original, uniquely flavoured chocolates will be available with two newly launched giant Grá hearts. Croí Álaínn is a tart raspberry filling surrounded by a silky white chocolate shell. The other Póigíní is a milk chocolate heart filled with smooth caramel and delicate flakes of Achill Sea Salt. Just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Grá is an Independent Irish owned and made chocolate company. They make high-end luxury chocolates that are magnificently visually dynamic. The Galway based company was created by award-winning pastry chef Gráinne Mullins and her team. Each chocolate is meticulously made and painted by hand. The chocolates are created in small batches, with each chocolate taking three days to complete and finish.
Grá Chocolates are made from ethically sourced Valrhona Chocolate, Casar Luker cocoa butter, and the world’s best dairy produce, Irish cream and butter.
Gráinne Mullins, the owner of Grá chocolates, said, “It’s a dream come true for our team to be opening our first Dublin location in Brown Thomas. We’ve worked hard to get everything ready for our first day, and we can’t wait to get the chance to meet our customers in person. But, for us, that’s the best part of the job!”
The full range of Grá chocolates is now available online. Dublin shoppers can browse the selection in person on Level 3 of Brown Thomas Dublin from January 28th.
