Calling all chocolate fans (aka pretty much all of us), listen up: Rivington Shoreditch have joined forces with New York Chocolatiers, MAST and it’s all rather exciting. MAST at Rivington will be offering tipsy truffles, a two course lunch, chocolate inspired cocktails and a tour of the first UK MAST factory that recently opened.
The menu which features six cocktails include the Chocolate G & T which is made with chocolate-infused Beefeater; Manhattan to Brooklyn which is made with chocolate-infused Havana and Hipster X which sees chocolate-infused Woodford Reserve mixed with cinnamon syrup, Frangelico, egg white, cardamom bitters and burnt marshmallow.
You’ll be able to buy the tipsy truffles which are made using Mast’s Dominican Republic chocolate, infused with gin botanicals -juniper, orange and cinnamon or you can have them as part of the experience. If you’re planning a date or want to give your chocolate obessed friend something a little different to the annual yard long bar of chocolate you give them each Christmas, then book them in for this. The two course lunch or early supper includes tipsy truffles, a cocktail , a full tour of the factory where you’ll learn all about how the award-winning chocolates are made, coca nibbles along the way and a cacao drink. It’s like a tour of Willy Wonka’s factory for grown-ups and less surreal.
