Product Information

The history of cacao and spices are closely intertwined in Granada, also known as Spice Island. Originally, traditional dances would be performed to polish and dry cacao with bare feet in huge copper basins. Today, small farms grow cacao on plots measuring one or two hectares. Valrhona selected an exquisite cacao in Grenada, the fruit of the ancestral lands of the island's Amerindian population. This Grand Cru was named after the Kalinago people.
