NEW for June, our Salcombe Sundowner chocolate made with Salcombe Gin
We are delighted to announce the launch of Salcombe Sundowner, our chocolate of the month for June & our latest fresh chocolate made in collaboration with a local food & drink producer...this time with Salcombe Gin of Salcombe in Devon.
This bright, zesty chocolate is perfect for the summer (& also for celebrating World Gin Day on June 10th & Father's Day on June 18th), as we have blended both Salcombe gin & pink grapefruit oil in a fresh cream & Venezuelan origin milk chocolate ganache (for a touch of sweetness) in a Madagascan dark chocolate shell, to help bring out the depth of the gin notes. The chocolate is decorated with a naturally coloured white chocolate cross which we think is a nod to the points of the compass!
Why pink grapefruit? This is to bring out the flavours of the ruby grapefruit, lemon & lime botanicals used by Angus & his team to create their unique gin. They have incorporated both citrus & spice botanicals to celebrate the "Salcombe Fruiters", fast sailing schooners that were based in Salcombe in the days when it was an important west country trading port & they had to be fast as they were carrying perishable fruits!
We hope you enjoy eating this chocolate as much as we enjoyed creating it! This new chocolate is available to order now online & will be available to buy from our 3 chocolate houses in Swanage, Winchester & Exeter from tomorrow, June 1st.
