This Mirzam Rose dark bar is a flavoured with damask rose. Mirzam crafts all its chocolate bars in Dubai. Mirzam seeks recipe inspiration from the ancient trade routes that connected Europe and Asia. It uses ingredients that sailers and traders once spent months seeking out to bring back to their home ports.
Mirzam has infused this bars with rose damascena, or damask rose from Bulgaria. The flowers have a particularly fine flavour making it popular for perfume, rose water, teas and food. The name comes from Damascus in Syria. Some stories even suggest that the flower was brought to Europe from Syria during the crusades.
The sweet dark chocolate has a delicate, floral aroma, much like a rose garden in summer. The bar is not overpowering, but still allows you to taste the rose oil. Reminiscent of Turkish delight.
The Mirzam Rose dark chocolate won Silver at the Academy of Chocolate Awards 2017.
