Cocoa grower Bertil Åkesson’s father was a Swedish diplomat in Paris before starting a trading company and traveling the world. The family eventually settled in Madagascar in the 1970s and took over various cocoa and spice plantations on the island. Akesson’s 2000 ha estate in the Sambirano Valley in the North-West of Madagascar. The organic cocoa butter in this bar, comes from cocoa beans grown on his Bejofo plantation.
Brand new for 2015, this is Bertil Akesson’s first white chocolate and the first ever single-estate white chocolate. Using cocoa butter that hasn’t been deodorised, give the bars an authentic chocolatey flavour highly unusual in a white chocolate bar.
As you unwrap the bar, inhale the deliciously sweet aroma. Take a bite into the smooth and creamy bar and discover the rich flavour and hints of chocolate smoke.
