Here at Bullion, we’re all about celebrating. Whether that be celebrating the good times by breaking open a bar of our finest bean-to-bar chocolate, or honouring the growers that produce our beans. We believe that whatever the occasion, a bar of Bullion will certainly help get the celebrations going!
Recently we came across the story of Jasmine Harrison, a part-time swimming teacher from Thirsk in North Yorkshire (just up the road from us in Sheffield!) Jasmine set out earlier in the year to complete the Talisker Whiskey Atlantic Challenge.
The mission was simple (but by no means easy!) She wanted to be the youngest solo female to ever row across the Atlantic Ocean. Her aim, not only was to be awarded a world record, but to also emphasise adventure whilst inspiring people and raising money for charity.
After 70 days, three hours and 48 minutes, Jasmine had done it! She had broken the world record and inspired many. There were certainly hardships along the way, 20ft waves meant Jasmine capsized twice but no matter what the challenge was, she persevered and achieved her goal!

To show your support for Jasmine and her incredible achievement, you can donate to her Go Fund Me here. She is supporting charities such as ShelterBox which supports those who have been affected by natural disasters.
Whilst completing this adventure, instead of packing the usual ration packs, Jasmine opted for biscuits and chocolate. Jasmine told The Guardian “I think I ate 40kg of chocolate!” This caught our eye and to say a big congratulations to Jasmine, we have sent her some Bullion Chocolate to help get the celebrations underway!
Are you looking for the perfect way to say congratulations? Or perhaps wanting to commemorate an achievement? Our Three Bar Bundle can be purchased here for those moments when you strike gold!
