Olive & Sinclair was Tennessee's first bean-to-bar chocolate company. Slow-roasted and stone-ground, O&S was founded in 2007. O&S takes pride in their take on bean-to-bar chocolate known as Southern Artisan Chocolate™. O&S Chocolate begins with stone-grinding cacao, inspired by the method used for stone ground grits, using melangeurs (stone mills) from the early 1900's. Only pure cane brown sugar is added for a robust flavor and slow sweetness that is definitive of Southern Artisan Chocolate™.
The concept has continued to define itself with the invention of buttermilk white chocolate, aging cacao in bourbon barrels, Duck Fat Caramels, collaborations with other Southern makers such as Allen Benton for our Smoked Nib Brittle and more!

After obtaining a B.S. from MTSU and then a Le Grande Diplome from Le Cordon Bleu London in Pastry Arts, I knew I wanted to do something with chocolate. In 2007, the seed was planted and the ideas started forming for Olive & Sinclair. I purchased small table top machines and started making 5 pound batches for friends and family. I spent a full year of trying to hone in, not just the craft of chocolate making, but the flavors I wanted to showcase in our chocolate. I wanted to stick to single origin chocolate with southern influences, which is something we still strive for to this day.
