Bring your sombrero: Boston's Hotel Chocolat spices up May with tastings!

Inspired by Cinco de Mayo, Hotel Chocolat, the British cocoa grower and chocolatier is offering a limited time exotic spice Chocolate Tasting event exclusively in Boston during the month of May.

The seasonal tasting menu was inspired by the flavors of Cinco de Mayo including Hacienda Iara Ecuador Organic 72% Dark with Chili & Pink Peppercorns, Liquid Aztec Chocolat and a number of other chocolate selections and rare cocoa varieties that awake the palate.
“Hotel Chocolat likes to bring a surprise to the enjoyment of premium chocolate,” explained Hotel Chocolat’s US CEO Nicki Doggart. “Cinco de Mayo sets a party mood and these limited release flavors are like a party in a bar.”
Hotel Chocolat’s May Chili and Chocolate Tastings are available by reservation only at $50/person, and are held exclusively in the company’s only Tasting Room, located at the chocolatier’s Newbury Street store. The hour-plus experience includes a full chocolate tasting journey and an introduction to Hotel Chocolat’s Rabot Estate in St. Lucia, its Engaged Ethics program, the origins of chocolate, and a peek into the “no nasties” commitment to premium ingredients and a less sugar more cocoa approach.
