You knew it was only a matter of time for two good things to come together, right?
There are chocolate lovers. There are spirits lovers. There are lovers of both. And now there is a way for both to enjoy both at the same time.
Moonstruck Chocolates of Portland, Oregon, has engaged with the Oregon Distillers Guild to present a lovely sampling of European-style chocolate truffles imbued with the essences of fine locally-produced craft spirits.
Each box of Moonstruck Chocolates Oregon Distillers Collection contains nine truffles in dazzling color array, each truffle a creation by Master Chocolatier Julian Rose to show the attributes of a different Oregon artisanal spirit.

These delicious Oregon spirits truffles will be available and on the market soon…word is they’ll be priced at $20.00 per nine-pack…but for now the only way to get a taste is at the upcoming TOAST--the Oregon artisan spirits tasting at the Portland World Trade Center, on Friday, March 22 and Saturday, March 23. Moonstruck Chocolates will debut the spirited truffles at TOAST; look for the tasting table with the really big crowd in front of it and you’ll be there.
