BLENDING THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS TO CREATE A WHISKY FLAVOURED KITKAT
Nestlé Japan has unveiled a new festive treat for Kitkat lovers, called Whisky Barrel Aged.
As the name suggest, the new Kitkat version created by KitKat Chocolatory boutique and renowned Japanese patissier Yasumasa Takagi known as the Willy Wonka of KitKats, the Kitkat is not made of Whisky per-say but instead the the chocolate wafers contain chocolate made from Cacoa nibs which have been aged in whisky barrels once used for ageing whisky and surprisingly these barrels have been sourced from the island of Islay in Scotland, home of peated Scotch whisky such as Laphroaig, Ardbeg, Lagavulin, and Port Ellen.
The barrels are then manually rotated once a week to ensure all the cacao nibs inside come into contact with the barrel.
Each bar will be sold for ¥300 JPY (approximately $2.50 USD) sadly, the "Whiskey Barrel Aged" version is only available for purchase in Japan.
