This classic combination is made the traditional Chocolarder way, with Cornish Black Bee Honey, toasted almonds sail-shipped from Spain, nougatine made in house using local free-range eggs, and unrefined sugar from a green harvest project in Brazil. The Dominican cocoa beans have been chosen for their smooth nutty profile, giving the perfect backdrop for that array of flavours to shine.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Chocolarder crafts its chocolate in Falmouth, Cornwall. Chocolarder’s exciting line of fine single-origin bars and delightfully innovative locally-inspired inclusions use only top quality ingredients that succeed in doing better for the environment and the communities at their source. The whole company has at its heart an ethos of “ethical transparency”. Mike Longman – founder and chocolate maker – is unwavering in his commitment to a truly transparent and sustainable production process, even to the point of transporting his beans to Falmouth by sailboat.
The beans for this bar are sourced from Öko Caribe, a prominent cocoa supplier in the Dominican Republic and one of the most popular in the world. The two owners, Adriano de Jesus Rodriguez and Gualberto Acebey Torrejon, maintain close relationships with their farmers, often giving out loans for family emergencies and community needs. They also educate their farmers about sustainable land management and environmental responsibility, and pay consistent premiums for the farmers’ award-winning cocoa.
“Superb. It is currently a limited-edition, but if ingredients allow, I suspect that it will soon become a fixture.” – Annalisa Barbieri, The Observer’s Chocolate Correspondent.

Not unpleasant but there are better bars on here.

This bar sneaks up on you … First taste is mellow and milky but then the overtone of honey hits you and your hooked … Left out on the table it won’t last long as you keep retuning for another piece.
