Adam Dick and Dustin Taylor have always loved crafting. With a background in woodworking and boat building, they have always worked with their hands. Craft is a guiding principle in their lives. After hearing about the craft chocolate movement in the late '00s, they saw similarities in woodworking and craft chocolate making. They became fascinated with the idea of the chocolate experience and in 2010 bought their first chocolate-making equipment. Their chocolate captures and highlights the subtle flavour nuances in the cacao they source from around the world, with the goal to make an enjoyable chocolate experience for us.
For the third release in their Barrel-Aged Chocolate line, they turned to friends from artisan craft distillery; Sonoma Brothers Distilling. Using heavy-char new American oak barrels from their three years aged 'Straight Bourbon Whiskey', they fill and age the highest quality certified heirloom cacao from Belize for six months. The dry-aging process allows the cocoa nibs to absorb the aroma and flavor of the barrel and the spirit. Once fully aged, they use these delicious nibs to handcraft a 70% dark chocolate bar by adding only cocoa butter and cane sugar. The finished chocolate bar is sweet with complex & pronounced oak and bourbon flavors.
