Fourteen Ten are pleased to announce the launch of The Melange Cocktail & Wine Bar serving cocktails inspired by the handmade flavoured chocolates from Melange, Peckham’s favourite chocolate shop.
To mark the launch on June 11th the founder of Melange, artisan chocolatier Isabelle Alaya, has worked with the master distiller of award-winning Catcotin Creek Distillery to create a unique rye whisky and chocolate experience. The experience offers The Creek Cocktail and The Creek Truffles, both made with the eclectic combination of Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye whisky, chocolate, mint and cumin.
Guests can purchase the experience at the bar, as a gift voucher, or via UK-wide delivery (The Creek Truffles only). The Creek Truffle is priced at £10.50 for a presentation box of nine and The Creek Cocktail is priced at £8.50. Bottles of Catoctin Creek Roundstone Rye Whisky are also available for purchase from Melange and alongside a box of truffles make for a perfect last-minute gift.
“We absolutely love the combination of our rye with chocolate, mint and cumin to create the cocktail and truffles. The rich notes of the cocoa and the with the delicious woody spice of the rye explode into fruity notes, the cumin adds an exotic note and the mint brings your palate back to a clean finish, ready for another sip or bite!” says Scott Harris, owner of Catoctin Creek Distillery.
