This aromatic chocolate was made by soaking nibs in a Kentucky straight bourbon for 2 weeks. We then carefully dry the nibs before we begin our grinding purpose. We paired our light fruity/floral Maya Mountain Cacao nibs with Rebel Yell bourbon after completing a bourbon and chocolate pairing flight. We believe the plum, butter and spice flavours of Rebel Yell pair perfectly with the honey, strawberry and vanilla notes found in our Maya Mountain 70% chocolate.
So, a bourbon bar was born!
This chocolate has a wonderful bourbon aroma with notes of sweet spice, honey, and raisins.
Maya Mountain Cacao was founded in 2010. They were one of the first to produce high-quality, centrally-fermented, transparently sourced cacao in Belize. They work with over 350 smallholder cacao farming families.
