Back in May we joined our friends at Tri-Island Chocolate for a true celebration of Grenadian terroir and produce during the Grenada Chocolate Festival: Rum Edition.
Whilst the rebirth of sugar cane on the island is a new phenomenon, the quality and importance of Grenadian cocoa is long established. So much so that the wonderful Chocolate Festival was celebrating its 10th Anniversary this year.
Cocoa is just as influenced by its terroir as sugar cane — indeed our own Jane Nurse first encountered the concept of terroir at a Grenadian chocolate tasting — and so how better to celebrate them both in all-Grenadian style than by combining our single cane rum and Tri-Island’s artisanal chocolate?
This took the form of five bespoke chocolates, each with its own Renegade Rum blended into the ganache; our two oak-aged Études, Pearls and New Bacolet, and three of our unaged Pre-Casks, the two terroirs of Lake Antoine and the recent winner of ‘World’s Best Unaged Spirit’, Pre-Cask Hope.
Each of the five chocolates was paired with a glass of its rum at a special Chocolate Fest masterclass hosted by Jane and Aaron Sylvestor of Tri-Island, held at the luxurious Silversands Hotel. Guests included chocolatiers, friends from the culinary industry, and other curious gastronomes.
Safe to say a delicious and distinctly decadent time was had by all.
