This special collaboration with our neighbours, The Liberty Distillery, features their Trust Single Cask Whiskey that was aged for 3 years in Madeira barrels. A windswept Portuguese island off the coast of Africa, Madeira has a winemaking tradition dating back to the 15th century, where its highly prized wines were made using a special process to withstand long sea voyages. After aging our Philippine cacao beans in an oak cask for 4 weeks with this unique spirit, they were dried and stone ground, yielding a chocolate with distinct wine-like aromas and notes of oak and almonds.
Oliver, Vince, Stefan and Dominik met playing hockey in high school. In 2015 they all had other professions, when Vince inherited a small plot of land in the Philippines and brought back some cocoa beans. The 4 friends got together for a weekend of chocolate making and got hooked on the process. After making chocolate every weekend and getting feedback from friends & family they launched Kasama in late 2016. Now, each friend has a unique role in the chocolate making process. See more
