Never before has Prestat Fine Chocolate crossed the Atlantic to be sold in the United States; well, thanks to David (the owner) this chocolate has found its way. Prestate an English company started in 1902 by Antonie Dufour whose family history is embedded in the French chocolate movement. These chocolates have been enjoyed by royalty, nobility and stars of the stage for over 100 years.
The company perceives chocolate as a form of art in which they are pushing the limits by creating unknown and unique combinations. The chocolates are handmade and gift wrapped under the watchful eye of the chocolatiers. Prestat takes pride in how the chocolate is presented, their goal is to have the packaging as beautiful as the chocolate inside. The packaging is bright and colorful, but it is no competition to the chocolate that waits inside.
