Founded in 1845, Lindt & Sprüngli is a global leader in the premium chocolate category, offering high-quality chocolates in more than 100 countries. Pioneer of the conching process, Mr. Rodolphe Lindt created the world’s first smooth-melting chocolate in 1879.
Chocolates are manufactured in Europe, with Master Chocolatiers overseeing the whole process –from the selection of cocoa beans and high quality ingredients, to the final production.
The latest innovation of the Lindt Master Chocolatiers sees the launch of two new premium chocolate bars –Excellence Touch of Sea Salt and Excellence 90% Cocoa.
A noteworthy addition to the Lindt Excellence range, the Excellence Touch of Sea Salt is a harmonious combination of intense dark chocolate and a touch of high-quality sea salt, perfectly balanced.
On the palate is a melodious entanglement of salty and sweet in their subtlest states, which accentuates the intense flavour of dark chocolate.
To fully appreciate Excellence, or premium chocolates in general, utilise all five senses. It is a sophisticated sensory experience best discovered in this order: sight, touch, sound, smell and taste.
Start with a clean palate. Study the texture and colour of the chocolate –high quality chocolate should don an even texture and a matt, silky sheen. Listen as you break off a piece; fine chocolate should break with an audible snap. Take in its aroma in a deep breath and discover an incredible array of scents. Finally, let it melt in your mouth and enjoy its rich and luscious feel, while paying attention to the morphing of flavours as the chocolate continues to melt and coat more of your mouth.
The latest Lindt Excellence 90% Cocoa joins the folds of Dark Lindt Excellence tablets (70%, 85%, 99%). Still a little harsh to the untrained palates, this chocolate will please those who enjoy a strong and powerful cocoa flavour that engulfs the tongue on first taste, revealing a smooth and earthy flavour melting within.
