Oh, When You're Big In Japan...

…so goes the classic pop song. And, did you know….Scotland and Japan have some big, historic connections?  For example, an Aberdeenshire merchant - ‘the Scottish Samurai’ - helped to create the Mitsubishi corporation and a Japanese man was a lead engineer on construction of the Forth Bridge. So, it’s with great excitement that the Pittenweem Chocolate Company is able to advance this ever-blossoming relationship, with the introduction of our Ginger Toms in Japan.

Handmade in Pittenweem, our chocolate ginger tom cats are now available via Felissimo, a prestigious mail-order catalogue. The Japanese company were searching for artisan, off-the-beaten-track suppliers and during their travels, the trail lead to Pittenweem. In order to showcase the new product, Felissimo has even created a short video for the Japanese market, celebrating our shop and village.

So, maybe one day, Pittenweem will be big in Japan too! Meanwhile, we think our new partnership with Felissimo is the cat’s whiskers…
