Butlers Chocolates began life in Dublin’s Lad Lane in 1932. The company was founded by a pioneering lady called Marion Butler who named her luxury chocolate creations Chez Nous Chocolates. Marion established the company in the heart of fashionable Georgian Dublin, making her delicious confections by hand.

Marion, who was born in India and moved to Ireland as a young woman, continued to make her delicious chocolates until 1959, when the company was bought by Seamus Sorensen from Cork. The company is still owned and run by the Sorensen family.

Excellence in product quality, taste, packaging and service are at the heart of the company's philosophy. The product development team at Butlers has always looked to international markets for trends in flavors and taste and to fashion for trends in colors and patterns. The purchasing team sources the finest quality ingredients, locally produced as much as possible, to enable their chocolatiers to create the best tasting chocolates.
