Great Taste 1-Star Award 2017
"We had hopes of great enjoyment as we read the description. The lime notes open at the outset, the juniper joins in, the gentle chocolate bitter notes blend in."
"An excellent tempered chocolate. The snap is good. The chocolate starts and then there is a strange, nostalgic flavour from the combination of the juniper, and citrus lemon and lime. The judges rolled several ideas and concepts around, excited by the prospects. There are bitter elements of Campari or Aperol orange. There are strange reminders of rose water that lead towards a Turkish Delight. A complex, but ultimately pleasing chocolate."
"An aroma of very strong citrus - there is a citrus freshness and a hint of bitter lime - but we do not taste juniper. We like the way the chocolate melts and the finish is clean and carries the citrus well."

Match and enjoy our juniper-infused chocolate with its alcoholic counterpart, choose an uncomplicated gin with good botanical notes and spicy flavourings that will contrast well with the rich bitterness of 70% cocoa.
Portobello Road Gin, beautifully poised, with a real kick of pepper, is not heavy on the juniper but with excesses of citrus, fennel and coriander will contrast well with the tastes of this chocolate.
Choose a green tea accompanied with lemongrass, the earthy, grassy flavourings of the green tea would harmonise with the botanical flavours of juniper whilst the lemongrass would complement the citrus kick from the lime oil. Tregothnan, the first tea grown in England is a perfect choice, it will cleanse the palate and bring certain freshness to the forefront of the tasting.
