Castronovo Honduras Dark Milk with Fleur de Sel 60%
Maker Notes: This chocolate bar is a tribute to the Lost City of a vanished ancient civilization, discovered within Honduras' virgin tropical rainforest. The indigenous people living in the region protect the forest and make a sustainable living as harvesters of wild cacao. The cacao is processed in their village and put on hollowed-out tree log canoes, called pipantes, for a two-day voyage upstream to the nearest road. We are the first American craft chocolate maker to make a single-origin chocolate from these remote beans. We sprinkle fleur de sel from Guatemala onto this dark, rich, creamy milk chocolate. The sea salt complements the savory nutty flavors in the chocolate. It pairs well with whiskey. It's our homage to timelessness of this place.
