    Unfortunately this bar is no longer available in our Library. Please see below for four bars that we think you will enjoy.

    Belmont Estate is a cacao plantation that dates all the way back to the 17th century, where the cacao today still receives ancestral traditions in its harvesting, fermentation, drying and handcrafting its chocolate.

    Belmont Estate harvests its cacao by sniping the colourful pods off the trees using mitten-shaped cocoa knives. Once fermented the beans are placed outside for 6 or 7 days to dry in the sun on big wooden trays or in our solar/convection drying facility built by the late Mott Green of the Grenada Chocolate Company.

    The bell in the picture of this 74% dark bar is the 300 year old Belmont Estate bell. The flavour profile is a delicate balance of raisins and sultanas with coffee. There is a slightly tannic note in the finish, which suggests a full bodied red wine.
