Created in 1989 by one of the Lindt Maîtres Chocolatiers who, inspired by world travel and love for fine food, set about experimenting with different blends of cocoa bean, percentages of cocoa, and the effect of blending varying combinations of cocoa butter and sugar using the highest quality cocoa beans from Ecuador, Madagascar, Ghana and the Caribbean islands. The refined consumption of LINDT EXCELLENCE elevates you to the finer things in life, providing the ultimate sensorial experience that will open your mind and take you on a journey to new places of culinary pleasure.
LINDT Maître Chocolatier, Stefan Bruderer, says:
“When it comes to cocoa percentage, the experience is entirely subjective. Finding the perfect percentage for you is more important than finding the highest cocoa percentage available…A higher percentage means more chocolate, and less of the remaining ingredients, primarily sugar. A higher percentage also means a more intense, bitter, chocolate flavour.”
