While a 1000 bucks can buy you a number of things, a heartwarming box of gourmet chocolates would hand down be the best alternative for every chocolate lover. Catering to these unsaid wishes of chocolate buffs is Patrón Tequila, one of the finest spirit brands, that recently teamed up with Kreuther Handcrafted Chocolate to create exquisite boxes of handmade chocolates for the holiday season.
Christened as the “Patrón Alquimia Collection”, the collaboration will be powered by Michelin-starred chef and chocolatier Gabriel Kreuther. The tempting assortment consists of 24 pieces of handcrafted and hand-painted chocolates, each of which are infused with six of Patrón’s finest tequilas, including the Gran Patrón Platinum, Gran Patrón Burdeos, Gran Patrón Piedra, Patrón Extra Añejo 5 Años, Patrón Extra Añejo 7 Años as well as the Patrón en Lalique that retails for a whopping $7,500 per bottle. The sweet treats take a three-day-long process to reach completion and contain rare ingredients such as honey flown in straight from Quebec, fruity tobacco beads, preserved chestnut confit, homemade Sable Breton cookies, and special Pasilla Chiles from Mexico.
This very fine Alquimia collection is a limited edition of 100 boxes (priced at $1000 each). Further, 20 percent of the proceeds for each sold set will go toward City Harvest, a charitable organization that feeds new Yorkers suffering from hunger. If your dear ones’ love chocolate like no other, delighting them with a box of Kreuther’s chocolates this Christmas, might just be your wisest holiday move!
