When the world’s most expensive tequila brand agree to work with a world-famous chef to create a limited edition collection of chocolates, we know there going to be some very expensive chocolates. Patrón tequilas have teamed up with chef Gabriel Kreuther’s famous Kreuther Handcrafted Chocolate to create a set of luxurious tequila-infused limited edition chocolates for the holidays named The Patrón Alquimia Chocolate Collection.
This luxury collection is going to make a hole in your pocket – a box of 24 tequila-infused chocolate bars will set you back $1,000. But they are handcrafted and filled with the best tequila in the world. For the collection, they used six rarest of Patrón tequilas, so each box gets 4 bars in each flavor.
This is a limited edition of just 100 boxes that they sell mainly through Amazon. A bottle of Patrón tequila normally retails for $7,500, and when you add all the other related costs that go to make the chocolate, it does justify the cost. Plus this is also for a good course, 20% of all sales go towards City Harvest charity in NYC – they collect excess food from businesses to help feed struggling families. For more information, call the store directly on (212) 201-1985.
