"Father's Day" - Cigar and Port Gift Set
After over 8 weeks of experimentation, we're over the moon excited to showcase our latest two flavors for Father's day, the Cigar & Port Collection.
Why Cigar & Port: Over the past centuries, perhaps millenniums, Cigars have earned a unique status across society, enabling a feeling of 'I have made it'. From Michael Jordan after earning his 6th championship to Rocky Balboa in his epic fight, Cigars are a way to celebrate a monumental achievement. To combat the rich smoky and deep flavor of Cigars, many social clubs in London served aged Port wine, a succulent yet savory wine with natural notes of leather.
How Did You Infuse a Cigar??: Working with some of the finest Cigar Shops in London, we certainly did our benchmarking correctly. Understanding the subtle nuances of Cigar flavor, the richness and distinction between certain styles of the variety, we finally started to infuse the cigar into a chocolate. After a few roadblocks (will be highlighted in a future blog post), we decided to use a tobacco-infused liquor. This added all the right notes and smoky texture, without the complication.
What's Included: 2 pieces of our Port-infused chocolates, complemented with 2 pieces of our Cigar-inspired chocolates. A much more deserving gift to your favorite Father (hint: he doesn't want another tie).
