ROYCE’ Chocolate recently launched its second retail space at the Bombay Baking Company, JW Marriott Mumbai. The ROYCE’ Juhu store has been designed to complement the brand’s unique Japanese identity and its focus on quality, intricacy and innovation. Additionally, the space was conceptualized to accentuate the Bombay Baking Company as an interactive chocolate bar where one can explore and enjoy the ROYCE’ product offerings. To mark the opening of the ROYCE’ Juhu store, ROYCE’ Chocolate in association with the JW Marriott Mumbai, has now launched a first-of-its-kind chocolate pairing menu.
Each beverage and chocolate combination has been selected for distinctive attributes that mutually enhance and balance the relationship between the two. This is done by coaxing out mild flavours or adding to dominant flavours with symmetry and contrast. The Bombay Baking Company will be offerring three unique pairings of ROYCE’ chocolates and cookies with tea and coffee. The fruity, citrus flavour of Twinings 2nd Flush Darjeeling Tea when paired with Royce Pure Chocolate “Venezuela Bitter” is the perfect harmony between bitter and sweet.
The ROYCE’ Baton “Hazel Cacao” Cookies when savoured with espresso, present an excellent acid-bitter balance and an aromatic blend of coffee and cocoa. At the Reflections Bar, one can enjoy chocolate-based cocktails such as Chocolate D’zire, a sweet concoction of Chocolate Syrup, Vodka and Amaretto served in a martini glass with a piece of melt in the mouth ROYCE’ Nama “Mild Cacao”. Also available is the Singleton “18” single malt, paired with ROYCE’ “Criollo Bitter”, the worlds rarest cacao bean. The complex and distinctive flavours of the Criollo are well balanced by the subtle fruity notes of the Singleton 18. The ROYCE’ Chocolate Pairing Menu will be served at the Bombay Baking Company and Reflections at the JW Marriott Mumbai.
On this association, General Manager of JW Marriott Mumbai, Mr. Pavithran Nambiar says, "Over the years, JW Marriott Mumbai has earned an iconic status in the city and has always been at the forefront of culinary excellence. With this association with ROYCE’, we continue to provide an upscale dining experience to our guests, who can now savour the chocolates with a number of food and beverage options only at JW Marriott Mumbai.”
