KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates Expands Spirit Collection with Release of Chocolate Mint Brandy

The renowned chocolate brand’s second brandy offering is set to launch just in time for St. Patrick’s Day

KOHLER, Wis. – March 13, 2017 – Kohler Co. is proud to announce that KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates is broadening its offerings with the launch of KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates Chocolate Mint Brandy. Incorporating the unique blend of chocolate created exclusively by the company, the new brandy is naturally infused with Kohler’s all natural, 72% dark chocolate and provides a fresh minty taste unlike any other spirit on the market. The Chocolate Mint Brandy will be released this month and is available at Destination Kohler, home to the Forbes Five-Star and AAA Five-Diamond resort-hotel, as well as other select retailers and restaurants in the Wisconsin area.

“We are thrilled to announce the addition of the KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates Mint Brandy to our evolving spirit business,” said Gerald Allison, Business Manager of KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates. “With the recent success of our original Dark Chocolate Brandy, we’ve been able to introduce our coveted brand to a whole new audience of chocolate aficionados.”

With a velvet smooth texture and light amber appearance, the refreshing spirit evokes a sweet mint taste with subtle hints of hazelnut and crisp, cool peppermint. A widely popular flavor, the chocolate mint spirit comes just in time for St. Patrick’s Day celebrations and is available in three sizes; 750 ml ($34.99); 375 ml ($19.99) and 200 ml ($14.99); with the smallest size available exclusively at Destination Kohler outlets.

KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates first ventured into the spirits industry last October with the release of the Dark Chocolate Brandy, which was meticulously crafted through various rounds and recipes before it was perfected to the distinct dark chocolate taste it’s become known for. Since its release, the Dark Chocolate Brandy’s presence has grown exponentially within the Wisconsin region, where it’s now sold in more than 250 locations.

History of KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates
The KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates story begins with turtles, and not just an ordinary turtle – a complex blend of chocolate; smoky, burnt caramel and finished with salted pecans hand-picked for their size and perfection. The turtle that went through rigorous testing, many recipe tweaks and extensive sampling was perfected by the renowned chefs at Destination Kohler and blessed by Kohler Co. Executive Chairman, Herbert V. Kohler, Jr., to launch KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates in 2007.

Today, the original Terrapins have become the foundation for a thriving chocolates business that refuses to clutter the marketplace, and seeks to explore limitless opportunity in taste with natural raw ingredients. The Terrapins have since been expanded into four delicious varieties and the company has continued to diversify its line of chocolates.

In 2016, Kohler Co. entered a new market with the launch of the KOHLER Original Recipe Chocolates Brandy; the spirit is naturally infused with Kohler’s dark chocolate, providing an unmatched spirits taste and experience.
