The Chocolate Stag

About Us


The Chocolate Stag is a handmade chocolate business based in East Lothian just outside Edinburgh. East Lothian is known as Edinburgh’s Coast & Countryside and often referred to as Scotland’s Larder being home to a wide range of food and drink producers – and now handmade chocolate!

All of our chocolates are made by hand by Angela at Garleton Lodge our award-winning, small luxury hotel in its hilltop setting with spectacular panoramic views across Edinburgh, the Forth and surrounding East Lothian countryside.

Launched in 2018, The Chocolate Stag has established itself as a firm favourite amongst local customers looking for high quality, handmade chocolates – take a look at Our Range

Luxury Handmade Chocolates

Why are our chocolates so different?


We do not use anything artificial and never add preservatives leaving our chocolates to taste exactly as they should. Our main ingredient is natural, full flavour cocoa with minimal sugar, no added artificial flavours and no added fat. These high quality ingredients are hand-crafted to create chocolates with optimum flavour and texture.

In comparison, mass-produced chocolate uses much lower quantities of cocoa with added fats, flavours and other additives including highly processed sugar to reduce costs, simplify production and increase shelf-life.

Both types of chocolate can be enjoyed in their own right but should not be compared – in the same way that blended whisky should not be compared with single malt whisky.

Our Range

Everyone's Favourites & Our Own Creations


Our Classic Range of handmade chocolates includes everyone’s favourites as well as our own creations. Using white, milk and dark chocolate the range includes Champagne Truffles, Salted Caramels, Strawberry Spheres, Gin & Tonic Truffles, Chocolate Orange Truffles and Dark Chocolate Spiced Rum Truffles – with new items being added to the range all of the time as we develop new ideas!

Available in assorted boxes of 6, 12 or 24 individual chocolates – these make a great gift for someone special … or a quiet night in!
