"To arouse pleasure, chocolate must delight the palate like no other exquisite sweet." - M. Cluizel

Michel Cluizel has practiced the art of fine chocolate since 1948. His love of fine chocolate, and his commitment to produce the finest chocolate without any compromise, from the bean to the final product, has made Michel Cluizel one of the top chocolatiers of the world.

As one of the world's few fully integrated chocolate manufacturers, Michel Cluizel controls all aspects of chocolate production. His goal is perfection in both flavor and quality, and he achieves it with every single chocolate piece. His blend of traditional chocolate making techniques and great innovation, such as being the first to manufacture chocolate bars using cocoa from single plantations, produces some of the finest chocolates available in the world.

Michel Cluizel requires his chocolate be mixed and conched until the particles of each ingredient are no larger than 18 microns. This results in one of the few chocolates in the world that does not rely on additives (emulsifiers, like soy lecithin) to maintain consistency. Michel Cluizel's chocolates are among the smoothest in the world!

Michel Cluizel has personally visited each of the plantations from which the company's cocoa is sourced. They work throughout the year with the growers, ensuring that only the highest quality cacao, grown free of pesticides, is used. In addition, Michel Cluizel uses only pure cane sugar (instead of corn syrup or cheaper beet sugars), pure Bourbon vanilla beans (instead of artificial vanillin), and pure cocoa butter (instead of hydrogenated oils and unhealthy trans-fats). He has also banned soy lecithin and all other emulsifiers. He believes that by using only the best ingredients, and taking extra care and time in the production process, the exceptional flavor and mouthfeel we all love and desire shines through. With one taste, the difference between Michel Cluizel chocolates and all the rest is evident.

Without question, Michel Cluizel is one of the finest chocolatiers the world has ever known, his chocolates are second to none!

How to taste high-end chocolate

Bite a piece of chocolate and crunch it between your teeth - then stop chewing and let it slowly melt. Gently move the chocolate around in your mouth. By doing this you will discover that even the darkest chocolate that you've had before, which you thought was bitter, will not be. The reason is that when you chew chocolate quickly, all the tannins get released at once and the tannins are bitter. But when chocolate is allowed to gently melt in your mouth, the richness, and smooth mouthfeel, of the chocolate is allowed to shine through. You thus get the pure chocolate flavor and experience you expect and demand. Also, as we all know, chocolate triggers dopamine in the brain, which makes us feel good. And that's how we get addicted to real chocolate.

All Michel Cluizel chocolates are made using:

  • Pure cocoa butter
  • No added vegetable fat (other than cocoa butter)
  • No added artificial or natural flavoring
  • Genuine Bourbon vanilla bean
  • Sugar
  • No soy

The “gateway chocolate” for non-believers. This chocolate is made with organic cacao from Bertil Akesson’s farm in the Sambirano Valley in Northern Madagascar, a region known for producing cacao rich with notes of citrus.

What's the difference between "drinking chocolate" and "hot cocoa"? Drinking chocolate is made from pure dark chocolate, containing all of the tasty and healthy components of the cacao bean, unlike most hot cocoa mixes which have been processed to remove the cocoa butter. Drinking chocolate keeps the chocolate in its purest form for a creamer texture and fuller flavor profile.

Add 1.25 cups milk to a small saucepan, and then add 4 Tablespoons Drinking Chocolate. Bring to a low simmer. Whisk vigorously until well combined and frothy. Pour into a mug and enjoy!

DO NOT BOIL THE MILK, that will be too hot and you will lose the nuances of the chocolate. Chocolate melts around 100F, so get your milk around 130-150F, which will be hot enough to melt it, and hot enough that you are having "hot chocolate," but not so hot that you will ruin the beautiful chocolate flavors.

Dashfire Mole Bitters
Dashfire Mole Bitters Be the first one to write a review

This wonderful chocolate, spicy, and slightly savory bitter was specifically designed to compliment tequila and mezcal cocktails, but also tastes great with bitter orange Campari cocktails!

It can bring flavor as a cocktail or culinary partner, bringing the kitchen to the bar and the bar to the kitchen.

We love it in this cocktail: 3 ounces Del Maguey Vida Mezcal, 3 ounces grapefruit juice, 1 ounce lime juice, 1 ounce Orgeat, several dashes Mole Bitters. Served on the rocks. For a bit more spice, infuse the Mezcal with your favorite chile pepper such as jalapeno or our favorite, chipotle. You can also dust the rim of your glass, we tried Tajin, and separately chipotle, with great success!!

One great thing about bitters is that they are great flavorings for sparkling water when you want a non-alcoholic, tasty beverage!

Two ounces can make between 50 and 80 cocktails, so a little goes a long way and the bottle should last months and months and months.

Workhorse Rye Barrel Aged Spiced Cider Bitters (Limited Edition)
Workhorse Rye Barrel Aged Spiced Cider Bitters (Limited Edition) Be the first one to write a review

These are best in spirit-forward cocktails of almost any kind ranging from the Old Fashioned (you pick the spirit, it will sing) to any aperitif/digestif you can imagine.

The predominant ingredient in these rippin’ bitters extracted from house distilled rye (Willamette, grown by Camas) and red corn (Oaxaca, grown by Masienda) is Newtown Pippin cider apples from 5 Mile Orchard, organically grown 50 miles from the distillery. With the help of their friends, they crushed tons of apples, naturally fermented them into cider and then they blended the cider with a high proof maceration of Cloud Forest Yellow Cardamom, Royal Cinnamon, Ea Sar Peppercorn, Pemba Clove, Eleuthero, Suma, and Gentian.

Super different from any other Apple Bitters on the market: the flavor profile is not based on sweet baking spice/apple pie. Instead, the focus is on exemplifying the flavor profile of this cider apple.

One great thing about bitters is that they are great flavorings for sparkling water when you want a non-alcoholic, tasty beverage!

3.3 ounces can make between 80 and 130 cocktails, so a little goes a long way and the bottle should last months and months and months.

This is released once a year, we were lucky to get 24.
Grab them while you can!

3.3 ounces (note they use a 4 ounce glass bottle so the bottles don't look "topped up" but we guarantee there is at least 3.3 ounces of bitters inside); note some bottles have a cork top as pictured, some have a metal screw top. They make killer products so we are fine with their eccentricities.

Griottines (35cl)
Griottines (35cl)
Average rating:
average rating 100%

The Griottines® recipe uses the special Oblachinska Morello Cherry. This cherry is only grown in the Balkans, and is known for its unique taste. During harvest each cherry is hand-picked, leaving the stalk behind. A rigorous sort process selects the best cherries, and within 6 hours of harvesting the first maceration occurs. This artisanal process, and attention to detail, preserves the special flavor and physical properties of the cherries. The Morello cherries, and the liqueur, through natural osmosis, become something magical. Another sort process selects only the perfect cherries. The pit of each cherry is then carefully removed through the hole left by the missing stalk. The cherries look whole but do not have the pit. These depitted cherries are then macerated in different liqueurs for different time periods based on a secret, traditional recipe. They are delivered to you for maximum enjoyment!
