Chocolates Fit for a Queen

Prestat’s hand-finished chocolates have been part of the Royal Family’s private and public life for decades – sailing round the world on the Royal Yacht Britannia and being much sought after at state banquets. There is no better nor more regal introduction to Prestat’s choclates than their opulently packaged Jewel Boxes.


To celebrate the 35th anniversary of holding the Royal Warrant from her Majesty the Queen, Prestat have relaunched  their Jewel Boxes in a range of new shapes and sizes. You can treat yourself to a 28g favour box, holding just two chocolates, or give someone a sumptious selection of Prestat’s milk, dark and white chocolates, by opting for one of the larger boxes which go right up to a majestic 640g.

Prestat also hold the warrant for Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth, the Queen Mother who is known to have had a particular soft spot for Prestat’s quintessential Mints and Rose and Violet Cremes. Billy Tallon, her lifelong steward, said that he always made sure there was a box of Prestat chocolates close to her chair in which she was sitting, commenting. “She kept Prestat for herself and put other brands on the piano for the rabble!”

Prestat regularly send chocolates to Buckingham Palace and the Royal kitchens and make a point of sending an Easter egg for The Queen every Easter.

Established in 1902, Prestat is one of the oldest chocolate houses in London. It’s assorted chocolates and truffles are entirely handmade in Great Britain. Roald Dahl – a man who ought to know a thing or two about chocolate – was a loyal customer and a huge fan of their Prestat truffles.
