This dark chocolate bar was hand crafted using Bolivian cacao by Palette de Bine in Mont-Tremblant, Québec.
As you unwrap this dark bar, make sure you admire the Palette de Bine’s plank-like mould and inhale the chocolate’s menthol aroma. Bite into the gently smooth dark chocolate and discover a delicate and unique tasting bar. Hints of honey, typical of beans from Alto Beni mix with fresher notes. The minty, slightly herbal tones and the sweet Bolivian beans produce a flavour that can best be described as ‘caramelised pine needles’. A delicious and unique bar that perfectly blends Canadian and Bolivian ingredients.
Christine Blais of Palette de Bine has sourced the cocoa beans for this bar from Alto Beni region in Bolivia. She has combined the rare beans with Balsam fir powder from her Canadian home.
Due to difficulties in sourcing and Christine’s long waiting list, we only have a very limited number of this bar available.
This bar achieved a Silver at the Academy of Chocolate Awards 2017.
