How to pair gin and chocolate this World Chocolate Day?

Are you curious to find out what flavours we can enhance when combining gin and chocolate? A gin and chocolate pairing brings out the flavours of our favourite food and treats to encompass your senses, a great pairing option for World Gin Day too. Our second and most popular spirit and chocolate pairing is a mesmerizing mix of our Steeltown Welsh Dry Gin and White Chocolate or Milk Chocolate. Gin can take up an array of botanical additions and garnish with no limits on the flavour combinations. Chocolate is rich and creamy, with an assortment of textures and flavours. When gin and chocolate come together, it is a dance of joy on your palette.

Gin provides a backdrop for chocolate to shine and to brighten the fruity botanicals. When trying our Spirit of Wales, award-winning Steeltown Welsh Gin and the Spirit of Wales White Chocolate or Milk chocolate pairing. Start by smelling your gin, add a drop of water to awaken the aromas, add your different botanicals and garnish. Once completed, add your favourite mixers, stir gently, and allow to settle. When you are ready for a delightful flavour journey, take a sip of your gin and wait around ten seconds before biting into the chocolate. Top tip! Ice hardens chocolate, which will mute the flavour of the chocolate as it will not melt in your mouth, skip the ice, or add a small ice cube rather than a drop of water.

 

The easiest pairing for a milder gin is white chocolate. Gin is an excellent match because of its delicateness and herbal notes of Juniper, which adds layers of depth to complement the chocolate. Made from cocoa butter and sugar, the floral notes in gin enhance white chocolate. An aromatic feast for the senses! Luxurious white chocolate with a luxurious creamy texture. Exciting and exotic, with big flavours to bring out the notes of our Welsh Gin.

Best Pairs: Award winning, Steeltown Welsh Dry Gin, Fever-Tree Mediterranean Tonic Water and white chocolate.
