Chocolate &...

Domori's pairing

"Which drink is a chocolate perfect match?" This question sounded a bit too generic for Domori tasters, who asked instead: "Which drinks are a perfect match for Domori's Single Origins?" The answer is surprising, and you'll be amazed too if you try.

Using straightforward pairing guidelines, even the simplest meal can be enhanced through the right chocolate-spirit combination. Start by picking either a single origin chocolate or a spirit. For example, experience how Grappa matches the taste of Arriba, Sur del Lago or Puertofino. Or try Apurimac, Sambirano and Porcelana with a sweet Calvados. You will see how different chocolates enhance the spirit's aromatic notes. 

It is the same old story: what's the perfect match of chocolate? Some choose a French Banyuls, others prefer Sauternes, the Piedmontese Barolo Chinato or a D'Annunzio-echoed Sangue Morlacco.

Domori has its own ideas about this topic. The pairing guidelines represent the result of extensive research and testing.

About Domori


Domori, the Italian Brand widely recognized for making some of the finest chocolate in the world, was founded in 1997 by Gianluca Franzoni and in 2006 has been included in the "illy Group" (Group Illy).
Domori, based in None (Turin), is considered a leading brand in the world of super-premium chocolate. 

Today, the original Domori model, based on a the shortest and most rigorous supply chain and recipes, is widely recognized and adopted by chocolate producers all over the world. 
In March 2019, Prestat, one of the UK's most loved chocolate brands, joined Gruppo Illy: thanks to this deal, Prestat can access Domori's single-origin couvertures, making it the only chocolatier with a Royal Warrant, and the only sizeable UK artisan chocolatier to have complete control of the chocolate-making process from tree to truffle or bean to bar. 

Today, both Domori and Prestat are part of the Gruppo illy sub-holding "Polo del Gusto" - chaired by Riccardo Illy - gathering all the extra-coffee activities. At present time, Andrea Macchione is Domori’s CEO and founder Gianluca Franzoni is President of Domori. In September 2019, Domori started a creative partnership with Annamaria Testa, who signed the Brand's new claim "Chocolate is a world".
