The Caviar & Vodka Gift Boxes are the result of an encounter of two men driven by their passions. Imbued with the same philosophy of taste, Nicolas Cloiseau and Armen Petrossian* have put deliciously unexpected associations centre stage. In their hands, the delicacy of the Caviar meets chocolate head on and begets a rare balance of flavor while the Vodka imparts its warm notes into the heart of a luscious ganache.
Maison Petrossian is heir to a centenarian savoir-faire that transforms and enhances the material. Thanks to its unique French expertise, it is a luxury brand known throughout the world. For it is not the best sturgeon eggs that make the best caviars, but the talent of the caviarologue artisans who work with, select, and transcend the material. Petrossian puts Caviar in the role of luxury ambassador and reinvents new pretexts for tasting in an incessant quest for gustatory innovation.
Chocolate, caviar and vodka...
An extravagant trio comes together in a brilliant collaboration between the storied maisons of La Maison du Chocolat and Petrossian. The result is a limited edition Chocolate Vodka & Caviar Gift Box, featuring a duo of chocolates. To explore these bold associations and taste nuances, Nicolas Cloiseau*, Master Chef of La Maison du Chocolat, united with like minded Maison Petrossian a legendary institution, synonymous with the luxury and elegance of Caviar à la française. The invaluable expertise of Armen Petrossian** and his commitment to magnify the taste of his Caviar and Vodka were essential to the creation of this duo of chocolate.
The unexpected pairings are crafted to give an audacious succession of flavors, and enrich the complex nature of chocolate. The duo of Caviar and chocolate comes together as a dark chocolate ganache with hazelnut and almond praliné blended with caviar. A hint of hazelnut accentuates the subtle notes of the chocolate with Caviar, which oscillates between sweet and salty, dark and milk chocolate. Rich, buttery notes yield to the softly salty notes of fresh sea air.
Inseparable from Caviar is Vodka. The ‘discreet fire’ of Petrossian’s Premium Vodka imposes its spirit onto this daring duo. In its role of revealer of flavor, the purity of this Vodka imparts crisp, floral and warm notes into the heart of a silky dark chocolate ganache.
