Fossil Coast Gin is a South West family-run handcrafted small-batch premium drink brand that celebrates the Jurassic Coast. Our drinks brand represents a passion for fossil hunting and our drinks are named after the fossiliferous rock types and time periods that mark the geology that preserve the remains, impressions, and traces of fossils along our dramatic and memorable coastline.

Belgian Chocolate Ammonites
Our handcrafted milk, white or dark chocolate ammonites are made from the finest blend of Belgian whole bean roasted chocolate with fruity notes and hints of pleasant bitterness. Each pack has 3 x 34g chocolate ammonites suitable for gluten-free diets and is certified as Halal and Kosher. Our chocolate is exclusively sourced from suppliers who actively support Cocoa Horizons who work with farming communities and co-operatives in Ghana, Ivory Coast, and Ecuador. The Cocoa Horizons Foundation was established in 2015 by the Zurich-based Barry Callebaut Group the world’s leading manufacturer of high-quality chocolate and cocoa products that are committed to making sustainable chocolate the norm by 2025. Cocoa Horizons is a non-profit impact-driven program focused on cocoa farmer prosperity and helping build self-sustaining farming communities that protect nature and children to ensure a sustainable and traceable supply of well-fermented and sun-dried cocoa beans. A proportion of the monies paid for the chocolate that Fossil Coast Gin buys to create the ammonites you buy is returned to Cocoa Horizons for farmer training, the provision of farming tools, training programs to empower women in West Africa and ultimately improve the livelihoods for farmers and their families from cocoa farming.
Our orange, lemon and lime citrus garnishes are preserved by dehydration making them perfect for a refreshing gin, cocktails with friends and those party punches for all seasons. Dehydration means that the water has been drawn out from the fruit without affecting the fruits nutrients. Dehydration preserves and increases the concentration of the fruits flavour profile. By adding an orange, lemon or lime citrus wheel to your gin, cocktail or punches it re-hydrates and releases a more intense taste on the palate. Citrus fruits are an excellent source of vitamin C with several health benefits and suitable for vegan and vegetarian diets. Our 35g packs of hand-cut citrus wheels should be kept in dry and airtight conditions and best used within 3 months of opening. Citrus wheels may have variations in thickness, may contain seed pips and be a combination of full and half wheels. Our citrus wheels may vary slightly from those images. We responsibly source our citrus fruit focusing on freshness, flavour rather than appearance to reduce food waste. We only buy from certified suppliers who value both environmental and social standards. Our citrus wheels are natural, untreated and have no artificial preservatives, colouring or added sugars. No known allergens have been used in the preparation of any of our citrus wheels.
