Chocolate, like alcohol, comes in various shapes and sizes—light, dark, single-source, artisan, flavored. So it’s no wonder then, that the two make such perfect bedfellows. Below, a few of our favorite selections.
Chocolat Moderne & Courvoisier Cognac
The New York–based gourmet chocolatier has been crafting luxury morsels for more than a decade. Award-winning chocolatier Joan Cuokos Todd sources French Valrhona chocolate with high cocoa content and covered with extra bitter dark chocolate of 61% cocoa content that yields beautiful and memorable bites that give way to fillings like pistachios and hazelnuts, as well as teas and premium liqueurs. Free from preservatives and artificial flavors, Chocolat Moderne’s range of flavors are perfectly complimented by the different expressions of Courvoisier cognac.
Courvoisier VS & Don Juan Dark Venezuelan Ganache
The delicate fruit and structured tannins of Courvoisier VS highten the intensity of this dark ganache 72% Venezuelan coverture, one of Valhrona’s finest.
Courvoisier VSOP & Persimmon Peach Caramel
Delicate persimmon and white peach in this soft chocolate play well with the jasmine and peach notes in Courvoisier VSOP.
Compartés and Jose Cuervo Reserva de la Familia
Celebrated Los Angeles Chocolatier Jonathan Grahm, named one of Forbes 30 Under 30, crafts chocolate that is at once a work of art. Using only the highest-quality, pure ingredients and sourcing chocolate from South and Central America, his collaboration with Jose Cuervo tequila is no exception. The limited-edition dark truffles, infused with extra añejo tequila reserve of the Jose Cuervo family, also pay homage to the tequila’s wooden box, bearing the same pattern designed by Mexican artist Enrique Rosas. The infused dark chocolate ganache is also a hat-tip to the Jose Cuervo family tradition of enjoying the family’s finest tequila reserves with dark chocolate to unlock flavors hidden within the ultra-complex aged spirit since 1795.
