Charbonnel et Walker history
Charbonnel et Walker was founded in 1875 and is one of Britain’s earliest chocolatiers. Encouraged by Edward VII, (then the Prince of Wales), Charbonnel et Walker first formed as a partnership between Mrs Walker and Mme. Charbonnel, the latter was persuaded away from the Maison Boissier chocolate house in Paris.
Charbonnel et Walker’s original shop opened at 173 New Bond Street in Mayfair and has remained in Bond Street ever since. It is now housed in one of London’s elegant arcades, the Royal Arcade on Old Bond Street.
The Royal Warrant for Charbonnel et Walker
Charbonnel et Walker are endorsed by the Royal Warrant as chocolate manufacturers to Her Majesty The Queen. This great honour allows the Royal Warrant to be stamped on each of their creations and we have heard that Her Majesty The Queen is particularly partial to milk chocolate and each year is presented with a selection of Charbonnel et Walker Easter eggs for her to choose as gifts.
