Fjak’s Reindeer Moss and Lingonberry bar is very much a homage to the wonderous landscape outside of their factory. Close to Europe’s largest mountain plateau and wild flocks of reindeers, Agur and Siv often take trips into the mountains to forage reindeer moss and lingonberries. Reindeer moss grows in bright light green-grey swathes and adds hints of earthiness to the bar, while the lingonberries grow on low bushes and are bright red with a tart taste.
This 70% dark chocolate is rich with notes of black cherry, citrus & Autumn berries from the Norwegian mountains.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Fjak crafts its small-batch chocolate in the depths of Hardangerfjord in Norway. Agur and Siv started making chocolate in 2015, but it was only in 2017 – after much experimenting and fine-tuning their processes – that they launched to immediate success. They’ve swept the board since then, picking up awards galore with their unique Nordic-inspired flavour combinations and exquisite single-origin dark and milk bars.
The beans in this bar are sourced from Bertil Akesson’s estate in Madagascar. Bertil’s beans are famous throughout the craft chocolate world, having produced countless award-winning bars and winning many awards themselves. They typically lend their bars a fruity flavour profile, and it’s an endless source of enjoyment for us to see all the new ways makers find to bring out their very best.
