Absolutely not, this is an indulgent real dark chocolate liqueur (not a clear liquid), with vodka blended to add the vroom!

The first shake ensures any settling of the chocolate is mixed back into the liqueur. This can lead to thicker pours otherwise. A gentle shake is required on further pours.

This can occur if the bottle has not been shaken well from the first pour. If you have any concerns, please email us at info@bouverycv.com and we’ll gladly replace the bottle.

Our favorite trick: Pour 2 oz of your preferred spirits or coffee into the bottle and shake vigorously like playing the maracas (our favorites are bourbon or a triple sec like Cointreau or Grand Marnier.)

There are no nuts in the liqueur, nor is there any cross contamination risk in the production facility.

The chocolate is derived from fair trade cocoa beans that is sourced from Ecuador, Peru and the Dominican Republic.

Westford Hill Distillery (Ashford, CT) premium corn vodka provides the smooth warm alcohol sensation.

We use a natural milk and cream component to provide that amazing texture you feel in your mouth.

5 years of perfecting, and a lot of love and patience is behind what you taste today… enjoy and tell a friend, share if you must!

There is no gluten in the liqueur.

We use dairy, hence not vegan-friendly.

The balance of alcohol and dairy with the proprietary chocolate blend means no refrigeration is required. We recommend you keep away from extended direct heat and store in a cool, dark place. Crystallization can occur if left in temperatures over 100 degrees F. This does not affect the taste, although the texture will be different.

Each batch is unique and may have very subtle differences. This may heighten the chocolate taste or vary the texture and viscosity. 

Each bottle is personalized with a handwritten label to show the batch and bottle number. Mrs. Anabela Bouvery writes every batch and bottle number using her favorite sharpie.  She promises to continue writing until her hand goes numb! 

Each batch is ‘rested’ for 2-3 months in the bottle prior to release from the distillery. The unique natural quality of the liqueur changes from day 1 and continues to evolve like a complex red wine.

We recommend bottles are consumed within 3 years of batch-run production, and 1 year once opened. Refrigeration will extend the liqueur shelf life. 

Each batch contains approximately 2500 bottles. We’ve produced 12 batches since June 2017 through June 2021. 

We choose the 375ml Little Sumo to convey the luxury of an exclusive possession you might have, a perfume or aftershave bottle perhaps. A beautiful light brown bottle tint was applied to add to the mystique of the liqueur inside. When finished, see FAQ #3 and then clean and let dry. We believe in sustainability, so go ahead and reuse.  Some of our favorite reuses: olive oil dispenser or drop some LED lights inside for that magical holiday or bedside light. 

See our Recipes section. Try mixing with bourbon, mezcals and citrus liqueurs like Grand Marnier and Cointreau.
