This moreish, lower-percentage dark bar has a fantastically boozy and vegetal flavour profile with a fabulous Chartreuse finish.
ABOUT THE MAKER
Ruket founders Alessandro and Marco have always loved food and been fascinated by traditional, artisanal production. Their discovery of craft chocolate happened almost by accident, when Marco wanted to use the best possible chocolate in his ice cream parlour. They started experimenting with bean-to-bar chocolate, and quickly decided that this chocolate was much more than just an ingredient: it was something to be shared with the world.
The cocoa for this bar was sourced from Produits des Iles SA (PISA), a central fermentery established in northern Haiti in 2012. PISA works with 1,104 small-scale farmers – 492 of whom are women – to pay premium prices for the unprocessed cocoa harvest and then processing it centrally, allowing farmers to earn more money for their quality beans.
