LIMITED EDITION 70% WHISKEY BARREL AGED DARK CHOCOLATE

Beginning with the highest quality cacao from Belize, we set out to create a chocolate bar unlike anything else. We began by aging cocoa nibs in Straight Bourbon Whiskey barrels. Once fully aged we use these delicious nibs to create a 70% Dark Chocolate bar adding only cocoa butter and cane sugar. The resulting bar is amazingly robust and complex with pronounced oak and bourbon flavors. A true one of a kind tasting experience.

INGREDIENTS: CACAO*, CANE SUGAR*, COCOA BUTTER*, BOURBON WHISKEY*   (*ORGANIC)

2 oz

"DEEPLY ROOTED IN A BACKGROUND OF WOODWORKING AND BOAT BUILDING, WE HAVE ALWAYS LOVED WORKING WITH OUR HANDS. THE CONCEPT OF CRAFT HAS BEEN A GUIDING PRINCIPLE IN OUR LIVES FROM THE BEGINNING. AFTER HEARING ABOUT WHAT WAS GOING ON IN THE YOUNG AND GROWING AMERICAN CRAFT CHOCOLATE MOVEMENT, WE WERE DRAWN TO THE COMMON THREADS WE SAW IN WORKING WITH WOOD AND CRAFTING CHOCOLATE FROM BEAN. WE BECAME FASCINATED WITH A NEW CHALLENGE AND LOVED THE IDEA OF REINVENTING THE CHOCOLATE EXPERIENCE. IN 2010 WE BOUGHT SOME SMALL-SCALE EQUIPMENT AND BEGAN MAKING CHOCOLATE.
THE MOST HANDS-ON APPROACH WE COULD TAKE WAS TO START WITH THE RAW CACAO. WE ARE ABLE TO SOURCE THE FINEST FAIRLY-TRADED CACAO AND PERFORM ALL THE STEPS IN-HOUSE TO TURN THE RAW INGREDIENTS INTO DELICIOUS CHOCOLATE, ALL IN OUR SMALL FACTORY IN EUREKA, CALIFORNIA. THIS ENTIRE PROCESS TAKES APPROXIMATELY THREE WEEKS TO COMPLETE BUT ALLOWS US TO MAKE SOME OF THE FINEST CHOCOLATE POSSIBLE. WE USE ORGANIC CACAO AND ORGANIC CANE SUGAR IN OUR CHOCOLATE. BY NOT CUTTING CORNERS OR TAKING SHORTCUTS IN OUR PROCESS WE ARE ABLE TO LEAVE OUT VANILLA, ADDITIONAL COCOA BUTTER OR OTHER EMULSIFIERS, IN HOPES OF CAPTURING AND HIGHLIGHTING THE SUBTLE FLAVOR NUANCES IN THE CACAO WE SOURCE FROM AROUND THE WORLD. WE HOPE YOU WILL GET AS MUCH ENJOYMENT EATING OUR CHOCOLATE AS WE DO MAKING IT."
