Davies and Stout spent about a year researching and testing different methods of chocolate making before they launched Ritual Chocolate in Denver, eight years ago. They started with one bar and slowly added more over time. Now, they have an assortment of bars and make everyone at their shop on Iron Horse Drive. Ritual aims to be as sustainable and ethical as possible, and the premium prices on their bars trickles directly down to a living wage paid to the well-respected plantation farmers.
Nice fruity aroma. Tastewise, moderately tart with bitter undertone. The finish is somewhat astringent and smoky.
The cherry flavour is quite prominent. Nice.
