Six Dogs Chocolate - Juniper Dark
Six Dogs Chocolate is a nod to our spirit of adventure and to our desire to try new things, create new experiences and celebrate all that is good about craft. We have collaborated with one of South Africa’s finest craft chocolatiers, Richard Von Geusau, to create a range of chocolates that not only complements our Gin but acknowledges the small kid in all of us.
Six Dogs Juniper Dark is a 70% dark handcrafted Belgian chocolate that celebrates the Juniper Berry, the heart of all gins. This creation is ideally suited to the adult palate, not too sweet and with a slightly bitter tongue. It is best enjoyed slowly, by itself, before or after your favourite Gin & Tonic.
After lots of experimentation (tough job but someone’s got to do it!) we have found that the best way to pair your gin with chocolate is to:
1) take a bite of chocolate,
2) infuse with a small sip of gin (either neat or diluted with a few drops of water),
3) combine in your mouth,
5) await the interesting sensation from your taste buds, and
6) repeat & experiment!
