About Us

Our products are high quality, plant based and the perfect companion for adventures.

Our founder Becca is an adventure guide specialising in scuba diving, so knows the value of a good hot chocolate to get you through those amazing cold adventures. This company channelled her passion and background in for marine responsible tourism. Since arriving in Iceland in 2017 the country hasn’t stopped inspiring her. The grumpy whale comes from the story of Rauðhöfði the mischievous whale from Hvalfjörður and the recipe was created after a long, cold hike in Bláfjöll.
The Grumpy Whale was born in 2020 with a little cup of hot chocolate and a lot of ambition. We love the outdoors; from the tallest mountains to the deepest oceans so really want our products to be the perfect little treat for big adventures. 2020 was a extremely challenging in so many ways, though one shining light is that it has given us the time to create this company that we previously onlythought was a lovely dream.
We really hope you enjoy our products and we can’t wait to see you out there with them having the best adventures.
