If you love chocolate you absolutely must visit the fun and hip chocolate factory, Hummingbird Chocolate Maker, where extra-rich, pure chocolate is made using ethically sourced cacao from around the world. Produced from their workshop in the small town of Almonte, Hummingbird has elevated chocolate indulgence to a new level.
True cacao aficionados will delight in the complexity of flavours found in Hummingbird’s chocolate, which vary depending on the cacao bean’s country of origin. Dark and delicious, and with a goal of creating the best possible chocolate, Hummingbird Chocolate Maker has transformed the chocolate scene.
Founded by Erica and Drew Gilmour, a couple with a passion for both travel and chocolate, Hummingbird Chocolate Maker was the dark horse in the International Academy of Chocolate competition in 2016. There, Hummingbird walked away with the coveted Golden Bean Award for the Hispaniola bar, earning the reputation as the best bean-to-bar chocolate in the world.
Tour their retail outlet tucked away in the town of Almonte, and experience chocolate as you’ve never tasted it before.
