Choose your tipple...
(New) Old Fashioned: a twist on the Old Fashioned is a distillery-batched cocktail, patiently perfected. As any bartender will tell you, a good Old Fashioned is notoriously difficult to get right. But fortunately, Starward has expert bartenders and whisky distillers under the one roof that result in the perfectly balanced cocktail.
Coffee Old Fashioned: a classic with a Melbourne kick. Pour over ice with a twist of orange peel to garnish. If you’re serving with food, muster maximum willpower and save Coffee Old Fashioned ‘til last. A chocolatey dessert or tiramisu will be a delicious match. One word of warning though. Bring this to a party, and it might just steal the limelight. Made with local Melbourne coffee liquor, Mr Black.
Whisky Negroni: where modern Melbourne meets classic Italy. Traditionally an Italian aperitif, this has a distinctly Australian twist. Starting with a bold, Melbourne-made whisky, aged in Australian red wine barrels, this is perfectly paired to bring out the characteristics of the classic negroni.
Must be over 18. Drink responsibly.

All of our chocolate is ethically sourced, and sent in sustainable packaging.
TIMING: We don't believe anyone should wait too long for chocolate and aim to have your chocolate packaged and shipped within 1-2 business days. The sooner the better as far as we're concerned :)
SHIPPING TIMES: Standard shipping typically takes between 2-7 days. Exact time will depend on the courier, and whilst we can't guarantee any exact time as it's out of our hands, experience tells us it's more likely to be 2-3 days in most cases.
THE SNAILIEST SNAIL MAIL: As a heads up, sending to a PO Box, parcel locker or similar, will often be slower as we can't use courier services and have to rely on Australia Post, who can be pretty slow at times.
EXPRESS POST: If you need your chocolate urgently, because sometimes that's a thing in life, please select Express Post at checkout, or get in touch to check how we can help.
HOT WEATHER POLICY: Please note, if the temperature is soaring we may withhold sending your chocolate for a day or two to ensure it doesn't arrive a melted mess. We'll keep you posted if that's a case, but please refer to our hot weather policy, or get in touch with any questions.
FREE SHIPPING! We're like you and we love free shipping - although full transparency, we deal in good chocolate as a passion more than profit (yep, the margins are pretty low) and as much as we'd love to offer free shipping on every order it's just not possible. But we love people who love good chocolate, so keep an eye out onsite for our free shipping rates, and gift boxes that include free shipping. Happy days!
