Neuhaus, the inventor of the Belgian praline, has opened its flagship boutique in St Pancras International. To celebrate, the Maître Chocolatiers of Neuhaus have created a chocolate version of the iconic Big Ben, made from 45kg of Neuhaus dark Belgian chocolate. The handcrafted statue which stands at over one meter tall, took the renowned team over 100 hours to create and will be available to view exclusively at Neuhaus St Pancras International.
The showstopper, made entirely from delicious Belgian chocolate, is inspired by London’s iconic Big Ben. Hand-adorned with four clock faces, dials and delicate lifelike windows, the statue is not only impressive in size, but a visual masterpiece too.
In store, you can discover an assortment of more than 60 refined Belgian chocolates. The chocolates are all made with the finest ingredients of natural origin, composed with the utmost care by the Neuhaus Maître Chocolatiers. Each praline is graced with its own shape, flavour and name. All Neuhaus chocolates are made in Belgium, in their ateliers in Brussels.
Wendy Spinks, Commercial Director at HS1 Ltd. comments, “We’re very excited to open Neuhaus’ flagship boutique at St. Pancras and to unveil their impressive, one-of-a kind chocolate sculpture to the public. We look forward to seeing our visitors’ reactions to the mouth-watering statue – it’s not to be missed!”
What’s more, to celebrate the opening, those who visit today (Monday 24th February) will receive a special chocolate gift.
