One of the world’s best-known premium spirit brands Patrón has partnered with chef Gabriel Kreuther and the team behind the newly-opened Kreuther Handcrafted Chocolate in New York City to collaborate an incredibly unique and exclusive offering entitled the Patrón Alquimia Collection. The production is limited to 100 boxes for the season and twenty percent of the proceeds from each set will benefit City Harvest, a charitable organization that feeds New Yorkers suffering from hunger.
Patrón Alquimia Collection includes chocolates crafted from rare ingredients and infused with rich and complex flavor profiles of some finest, oldest and rarest tequilas, including Gran Patrón Platinum, Gran Patrón Burdeos, Gran Patrón Piedra, Patrón Extra Añejo 5 Años, Patrón Extra Añejo 7 Años, and even Patrón en Lalique. Due to the exceptional nature of the ingredients, every box is priced at $1,000 for 24 custom bars of chocolate. The chocolate-making method used in this process was custom created for this Patrón collaboration, and had never been executed before.
The sweet treats inside each set of Patrón Alquimia Collection are handmade, hand-painted and require three days to create. Among the rare ingredients used in each signature recipe are honey flown in from Quebec, hand-selected sweet and fruity tobacco, chestnut confit preserved for the right texture and viscosity, house-made Sable Breton cookies, and rare Pasilla Chiles imported from Mexico enhance these chocolates further still.
