    Academy of Chocolate Award

    Zotter achieves 2 silver and 3 bronze awards

    The Academy of Chocolate in London recently bestowed their coveted awards for best chocolates and bonbons in the world for the 9th time. Never before did the competition receive so many entries, particularly in the category "Bean to Bar". Repeating last year's success, Zotter managed to achieve top rankings with their dark Labookos, carried off four awards in the category "Bean to Bar" (2 silver and 2 bronze) and one award in the category "Filled Chocolates" with their submission of the "Salzberg Beerenauslese" hand-scooped chocolate bar, which is filled with a ganache created with red wine supplied by the prestigious Gernot Heinrich vineyard.

    The world's finest chocolates are judged by the Academy of Chocolate and by a panel of international journalists, chefs, pastry chefs and experts in chocolate and food. The judges pay particular attention to the appearance, depth of aroma, flavour, length and complexity of the chocolate.
