“I find the combination of crisp yuzu, smoky sake, zesty Japanese plum wine, and sweet Neuhaus milk chocolate delightfully invigorating. Imagining yourself in Asia is easy. Just close your eyes.”
As the inventor of the Belgian praline, it was only natural to take on the challenge of reinventing the traditional liquor praline. To do so, our Maîtres Chocolatiers have joined forces with a Belgian family of world-renowned mixologists—the Van Ongevalle's. The seamless blend of craftsmanship and entrepreneurial spirit made the collaboration a match made in heaven. The result? Five unique, spirits-filled pralines, inspired by popular cocktails.
