This milk chocolate bar has been crafted using a blend of Nicaraguan beans from a co-operative in Waslala, in the nature reserve in the mountains of northeastern Nicaragua. Added to the mix is Danish Lakrids licorice from Johan Bülow.
On the palate, expect a rich creamy chocolate with notes of honey against the herbal and distinctly liquorice flavours. The liquorice has some bite, so do expect a chew against this fudgy Friis Holm milk chocolate.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Mikkel Friis-Holm’s craft chocolate journey started with an ever-growing passion for fine chocolate. This eventually led him to Central America, where he immersed himself in a project that aimed to identify and evaluate DNA strands of Nicaraguan cocoa beans. He then pivoted from sourcing to making, and Friis Holm, the Danish craft chocolate maker, was born. Mikkel is still fascinated with genetics, and ensures he chooses the best varieties with the highest flavour potential.
