The name Hans Sloane has been associated with drinking chocolate since 1687 when the physician returned to England from Jamaica with native cacao and the recipe for Britain's first hot chocolate. Sir Hans was doctor to King George 1 and the king built a chocolate kitchen at Hampton Court so he could have his drinking chocolate every morning. It became popular throughout London selling in chocolate cafes like White’s of Soho. We've been indebted ever since! Fast forward 300 years and today Hans Sloane makes unique pure chocolate beads, which melt perfectly with milk or water to make a truly indulgent chocolate drink.
