Debauve et Gallais history



Sulpice Debauve, pharmacist of the King Louis XVI, opened in 1800 with his nephew, Mr. Gallais, a chocolate factory whose quickly rising fame made it the appointed supplier of the Kings Louis XVIII, Charles X and Louis-Philippe. Thus, for 200 years, we have been serving great men and famous names from all around the world. The original shop is at 30, Rue des Saints-Pères in Paris VII and was designed by the architects of Empress Joséphine. In 2000, for the 200th anniversary, Debauve et Gallais opened an e-shop.

The chocolate is divine, made with the best ingredients and packaged with care. It's also very very expensive and sold in shops with superior service. For a exclusive hit of cocoa goodness, give them a try.
