Tidal Rum first met The Chocolate Detective, founded by the incredible Chantal Coady OBE, at a rum and chocolate tasting in London organised by Rendez Vous. We were treated to a number of Chantal’s melt in your mouth chocolates and instantly realised there was great taste (and sea) synergy between us.
Chantal set up The Chocolate Detective to, in her own words:
Ask lots of awkward questions about choc for example “how can chocolate be slave free?” “how can we all help and support cocoa farmers and small chocolate makers?” “what is the true price of chocolate?” “what does fair trade really mean?” I think you get the message…

Sea Salt Milk Chocolate
Ecuadorian origin 40% cocoa milk chocolate. Flavoured with Blackthorn Scottish sea salt and given a light shimmer.
Chantal, aka the Chocolate Detective, invented this recipe on a beach in Cornwall in 1998. Whether in bars, wafer thins or this ‘broken’ format sea salt milk chocolate has always been our best seller. The delicate Blackthorn sea salt enhances both the caramel and the delicate cocoa notes of the chocolate.
Foraged Fennel White Chocolate
Another Chocolate Detective original recipe.
Inspired by Chantal’s early childhood in Teheran, cardamom and white chocolate prove to be a classic combination – the cardamom brings a citrussy zing, while the foraged wild fennel seed from a pebbly beach in Kent brings fresh green notes. The small addition of sea salt balances the sweetness.
Cherries and chocolate have a long history.
We love the tartness of these cherries which doesn’t overwhelm the mellow chocolate and gingerbread notes of this fantastic Ecuadorian couverture. Both bag and ribbon are 100% compostable.
