Hailing from Brooklyn, New York, Mast Brothers is making exceptionally good chocolate on Redchurch Street in Shoreditch. Not only does it taste incredible, but each bar is beautifully packaged – making it totally giftable and really rather indulgent (particularly given the £7 price tag!).
Founded by a pair of brothers with an obsessive attention to detail, you can expect meticulous craftsmanship and inspirational simplicity, always with a focus on clarity of flavour.
Visit the London flagship for more than just chocolate bars. In addition to the shop, the Redchurch site hosts the complete factory experience – pop along for a behind the scenes tour (£10 – check times online) and prepare to be amazed as you are guided through the bean-to-bar process, with plenty of taste tests along the way.
There are chocolate beverages and confections for sale too (think chocolate beer and cold brew, plus cookies and sourdough spread with chocolate!), in case you haven’t had enough of the stuff once the 30 minute tour is up.
