That they do not shy away from the experiment at the Austrian bean to bar chocolate makers of Zotter that most chocolate lovers already know.
Their filled ‘Handscooped’ chocolates have the craziest (and usually beating) additions. From tequila to peanut butter with banana. In addition to their fine and accessible origin chocolates in milk & pure. Everything organic and fair of course.
At Craft Akt they let go even more. And they bring the experiment to your home. Chocolates from special cocoa. Chocolates that are a little less conceived and made more playful. Chocolates that come out slightly different every time. Chocolates in small machines, in small quantities. It doesn’t have to go through the large production line, there is more possible. And that also means: doing more with less. Because compare it with the ‘normal’ Zotter chocolates and you will see that the list of ingredients has only become shorter.
Not even available for resale, but luckily we were allowed to offer some. And with the most reachers we looked forward to this chocolate. Whiskey nibs, always good, and in combination with a dark 80% chocolate.
“This is a high percentage experiment. How can you refine cocoa that is already full of powerful flavors? You need something strong like whiskey! Peruvian cocoa beans were soaked in much Scottish whiskey and left in their delirium for a few days. No wonder so that they enjoyed themselves immensely. Then you have to dry them for a while and then roll them over so that they can develop their aromas well. It should mainly shine through the malty sides of the whiskey, so go beautifully with the brown sugar in the chocolate! “
Above all you have to taste the result yourself, but we think it is very nice that Zotter continues to experiment. With special cocoa, with special preparations.
Fun extra fact: Zotter is a family business, and daughter Julia is just as liberating (and creative) busy as the rest of the family. In addition to chocolate, she also focuses very much on nude portraits. And so you will find (stylized) naked people on the mold.
