A bean-to-bar craft chocolate maker, producing luxury dark chocolate without any additives. By sourcing directly from local producers, we use only high-quality, single-origin cacao to produce our unique chocolates.
When you think of chocolate, we often lean towards a stereotype that originates from TV commercials, occasionally pushing cheap pricing points to a broader audience, only a few brands escaping that net. Luxury in this sector is experiencing exponential growth more so with the run-up to Christmas.

Survival for me would be impossible without its; captivating smell and addictive taste, not a connoisseur by any means but the mere thought of survival without chocolate is not worth thinking about.
I was lucky enough to catch up with Daniel Jackman, the exclusive UK distributor for Definite Chocolate. After living in the Dominican Republic for several years, he met the founder of the company and became a personal friend. The entrepreneurial side of Daniel made him identify with an opportunity to bring a unique product to market here in the UK.
At this point, a history lesson comes into play which is very significant to the distribution process and why it separates this particular chocolate from the mainstream market.
“Cacao was first introduced to the island of Hispaniola (the current Dominican Republic and Haiti) by the Spanish at the beginning of the 17th century, mostly as an experiment. In the lee of Pico Duarte, a now dormant volcano and the tallest mountain in the Caribbean, the cacao tree thrives on the rich soil found on this island. It’s from here that we source our cacao”.

Much like fine wine, the unique flavours of our single-origin bars take time to develop. Let the chocolate melt on your tongue, enjoying the taste as it grows. Savour the subtle tasting notes you’ll find in no other chocolate. This is Definite Chocolate.
You could sense the excitement in Daniel’s voice tones when he explained that his company is; internationally recognised for quality. I was left intrigued to know more about the beans to bar process which plays such a big part in defining why this product should appeal to both wholesalers and retailers. Our Cocao is ethically sourced, working closely with farms to ensure that our manufacturing process is continually improved.
Our award-winning chocolate is sourced from only a handful of estates in the Dominican Republic and is carefully crafted through our micro-batch operation. The result is fine dark chocolate with rich and complex tasting notes.
By ensuring each bar only uses Cacao from a single estate, we maximise the tastes and tones of our chocolate. These unique flavours are what make our chocolate so distinctive.
Why the UK?
The UK has been recognised for their love of chocolate but more so with dark chocolate. Dark chocolate has been known to have some health benefits such as not containing any additives, maintaining concentration levels, contributing to improved blood pressure levels and it’s also vegan-friendly which is a growing trend.
He couldn’t see me smiling but having a passion for chocolate and for having diet cheat days; this would only lead me to make me want his product more.
I should mention that Daniel is currently looking for both wholesalers and retailers, his details are on this article. The website is very comprehensive and I have included a website screen video capture with a link, very user friendly it provides a great insight into the humble beginnings for this quality luxury brand. Daniel is working remotely, an added benefit at this time so please contact him as I feel that there is a place in the market for a high-end chocolate brand like this.
Three new fabulous products are being launched here in the UK in time for Christmas, with the intention of a hot chocolate complement to the range soon. You can follow the Definite chocolate story on both Facebook and Instagram, press their logos on this page to join.
