Butter Atelier

We hand pour each Body Stone with love in our Butter Atelier, located in New York's Hudson Valley.

The very first Body Stones were made and sold out of Kate’s kitchen in Brooklyn. Eventually, we expanded into our own production facility in Vinegar Hill, Brooklyn. We nicknamed it the “Butter Atelier” after cocoa butter, the Body Stones’ main ingredient. Thanks to incredible customers like you, we outgrew this space and moved the Butter Atelier into a larger space known as “The Chocolate Factory” in the Hudson Valley.

The Chocolate Factory was built in 1888 by Baker Chocolate and now houses small businesses of every shape and flavor. Given our cocoa butter based formulations and Kate’s background as a pastry chef, it feels like home.

The Butter Atelier is an active production facility and currently closed to visitors due to COVID-19. However, if you are in the Hudson Valley area and interested in placing an order for pick up, please e-mail atelier@katemcleod.com and we will do our best to assist you. We look forward to resuming private workshops and consultations in the future when it feels safe to do so.
