New Independent Chocolate Shop opens in Carlisle

Castle Chocolates

Are you a chocoholic? Then Castle Chocolates is the place for you! Castle Chocolates, on Fisher Street, next to Carlyle’s Court, Carlisle, opened in early September.

Owner Keith Tattersall, who has previously worked in the catering and licensed trade, is a keen cook and enjoys trying out new recipes at home.

After visiting a chocolate shop on holiday with his wife, Emma, he tried his hand at making chocolates at home. These were an instant hit and the idea for a business based around chocolate was born.

Keith, aged 32, who attended William Howard School in Brampton says; “Our aim is to create delicious, hand-crafted chocolates at an affordable price. Customers can see the chocolates being made in the shop, while browsing the selection available.”

Keith has always wanted to work for himself and was quick to take the opportunity to develop his business idea into a shop. He says, “Our range includes both topped and soft centred chocolate bars and chocolates which can be bought individually or in presentation boxes. We make bars and chocolates in a variety of flavours.

“Come along and try some, and if you don’t see what you want, ask, and we’ll try to make it for you. My current favourite is a soft centred bar, filled with a salted caramel ganache. We are keen to develop the business into other areas, such as wedding favours, corporate gifts and personalised chocolates. Please contact us if you have any queries.”

Castle Chocolates is open daily from 9am-5pm. Contact them on 07854162856, email at [email protected], find them on Facebook and Instagram @Castle Chocolates Carlisle or visit the website at
