Emulate and mimic the flavours of this Sea Salt bar when deciding on an appropriate pairing.
We recommend a South African pinot noir, hits of spice with gentle Pinotage qualities the salt in the chocolate will enhance the fruit flavours and blend accordingly with the smokiness.
Look for a Robust, medium bodied red wine. Ideally with notes of cherry, raspberry and plum with soft tannins – degree of smokiness the wine which would work well with the bitter qualities of dark chocolate and would be enhanced by the saltiness.
Single Malt Whiskey
For a more mature flavour pairing, we recommend the warm and peaty aromas of an Islay single malt. For a serious flavour pairing try Laphroaig single malt, medicinal in flavour with a rich amber colour, warm, mature and intense.
Warmth, earthiness and lingering smoke flavours from the peat would work well with a dark chocolate with a hint of salt.
Lapsang Souchong Tea
Alternatively, Lapsang Souchong tea dried over a smoking pine fire, imparts a sweet, clean smoky flavour and creates a unique exquisite pairing for our chocolate, the richness of both mingle and merge and create a sumptuous experience.
