Chocolate and Cider!
What better way to tell your cider lover that you love them. (Or indeed to give yourself a well earned treat).
You may not have considered it an obvious combination and, to be honest, we were keeping an open mind... We needn't have worried, cider and chocolate are a match made in the garden of Eden. Cider is after all a wine made of apples with all the rich complexities you'd expect and it pairs beautifully with these chocolates.
Rowdy and Fancy's are an East Sussex producer based a couple of villages from us. They make exquisite organic, eco friendly chocolates by hand. Their logo features Adam and Eve and ask what would have happened if there had been a choice between chocolate and the apple. (We wonder what would have happened if the apple had fermented first). Rowdy and Fancy's couldn't be a better fit with Bignose & Beardy.
In this taster box we have paired fours ciders with four chocolates:
- Discrace, Bonnie Prince, Last Pear and Cockhaisy
- Sweet Rose, Lime Chilli, Coffee Cardamom, Plain Delicious
The ciders interact with each chocolate differently creating a delicious range of taste sensations. This box is perfect for a cosy night in.
We recorded an online taste along session on February 15th 2021. You can see the video and access the tasting notes here.
