  • Description
  • Gin & Tonic chocolate?!! The perfect gift for any occasion for a Gin lover 

    We combine the finest juniper, lemon and lime with our house 70% single-origin organic fair-trade dark chocolate from Ecuador to give our take on the classic Gin & Tonic. This has a strong juniper flavour! 

  • 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."

     

  • Ingredients
  • 80g Organic fair-trade dark chocolate (cocoa mass, cocoa butter), organic fair-trade cane sugar, organic vanilla extract, emulsifier: sunflower lecithin 0.1%. Min. Cocoa solids 70%.Organic Juniper, Lemon and Lime Oil

  • Chocolate Pairing Suggestions
  • Gin Pairing
    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.

    Tea Pairing
    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. Tegothnan, 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

    Gin & Tonic 70% Dark Chocolate Bar

    Good strong aroma of juniper with floral dark chocolate notes. On biting, much firmer than the milk and a longer melt. On tasting, lime hit me first, but only just very faintly. Then bitter notes from dark chocolate. Some grassy notes. Juniper next….The juniper is strong with this one so it is!! It reminds me of pink peppercorns but with less spice. If you like G&T you’ll recognise this… that bite at the end of the tonic… its there (though not a dash of quinine in sight). A while longer, yellow fruits, a little more spice and a faint dash of tobacco. Did I just taste a bit of pineapple? There’s flavour here, but you have to persist a little. Definitely not one for scoffing quickly.

    A bit more of an oddity… but in a good way. Its the kind of bar you remember clearly as its just so different to anything else you might have tried before. Its also (when you allow yourself to taste it properly) reasonably complex. Its a firm bite, strong on flavour and lingers a while after you’ve tucked in. I say tucked in, but actually you can’t. It demands you enjoy it like you’d enjoy a G&T. Down it at your peril, but savour it at your pleasure. Little and often is the way with this bar! Not a bar Id want every day, but if I was opting for a present that somebody would remember, I’d probably include this in a selection. If I wanted something occasionally to remind me of how varied chocolate can be, well… I just might!

    Thanks for the review Glenn!

    Delicious chocolate!

    This is my second order and it's just as delicious! I can only eat dark chocolate & the flavours are great. I love the sea salt bar & the gin & tonic one too but all the chocolate is excellent & beautifully packaged.

    Thanks for review Juliet. You have good choice as the Gin & Tonic, and the Sea Salt both won Great Taste Awards :)

    Perfect. The bees knees of chocolate.

    Delicious, sensational and divine chocolate. The flavours really shine through, mesmerising mind, body and spirit. Love Cocoa are truly gifted chocolatiers and a heaven sent Godsend.

    Prefer the plain

    Strong scent reminescent of lemon balm. Didn't taste of gin and tonic to me.

    Sorry this chocolate bar wasn't for you Jackie. We use Juniper and Lime to give our take on the classic Gin & Tonic.

    Yummy Chocolate

    The flavours were subtle and did not over power the smooth tasting chocolate. Positively yummy!

    Yummy chocolate!

    Nothing short of what we expected. This chocolate is delicious and really shouldn’t be shared! Enjoy it

    Once again Great Service and Yummy Chocolate.

    Great service yet again. Needed the minis to keep me going. Hope you will do mini Earl Grey next. Thankyou.

    Mini bar bundle

    How wicked to put 10 bars in one box!!
    Absolutely scrumptious.
    This will be a must again when my cholesterol has recovered!
    Everybody should try this. I did share two bars with my neighbour, though.

    Mint Bar

    A delicious bar of (proper Cadbury!) chocolate. Will certainly buy again.
