Handmade rum-flavored single-origin chocolate bar. 2oz.
Limited first edition of 200 bars.
rum, brown butter, mocha
Mellow chocolate with the sun-kissed warmth and sweetness of aged rum.
For this limited-edition bar, sustainably grown cacao from Wampusirpi, Honduras swims in Roaring Dan’s Rum before becoming buttery-smooth chocolate.
The rum, crafted by Great Lakes Distillery in Milwaukee, WI, takes its name from "Roaring" Dan Seavey, a pirate who plied the Great Lakes at the turn of the 20th century.
Once the beans are roasted, cracked, and separated from their outer shells, they're known as "nibs." It's these nibs that I soak in copious amounts of rum: a full bottle of top-shelf, craft-distilled rum for every 40 bars worth of nibs.
After the nibs have drunk the last drops of rum, I slowly dry them back out. Drying concentrates the rum's flavors in the nibs, but removes all of the alcohol and water (making this a non-alcoholic chocolate bar).
Finally, the rum-flavored nibs are ground with whole cane sugar to make smooth 72% dark chocolate.
