Discover the perfect pairing with EXCELLENCE

Created using only the finest cocoa and the world’s most luxurious ingredients, every LINDT EXCELLENCE slab is a uniquely refined taste sensation.


But while these intensely decadent creations from the Lindt Master Chocolatiers are sensational on their own, their complex, sophisticated flavour profiles make them perfect pairing partners for anything from whisky to wine.


This month, why not try something new, and elevate your EXCELLENCE experience to the next level by exploring these exquisite pairings.

LINDT EXCELLENCE Caramel with a Touch of Sea Salt & The Glenlivet 12-year Old

The subtle undertones of sea salt found in this complex EXCELLENCE slab are perfectly offset by the strong, fruity notes of pineapple that characterise this classic single malt. The whisky’s creamy marzipan & hazelnut finish also enhances the slab’s sweet caramel crunch, creating a rich, balanced flavour combination sure to seduce the palate.

EXCELLENCE 78% & Green Tea

A surprising yet exhilarating confluence of contrasting flavours, this pairing is best prescribed for those remaining bitter winter nights. The delicate texture of the tea enhances the chocolate’s high cocoa taste, extending its time on the palate and leaving behind a soft and elegant after taste.

LINDT EXCELLENCE Mint Intense & Amarula Cream

An indulgent and intense pairing best enjoyed after dinner, EXCELLENCE Mint Intense and Amarula Cream make for an unexpected and doubly decadent culinary coupling. The dark undertones of the chocolate offset the sweetness of the liqueur, balancing out its flavours and cutting through its creaminess with a fresh minty finish.

LINDT EXCELLENCE 70% Cocoa & Vrede en Lust Boet Erasmus

The earthy flavours of this Bordeaux blend perfectly complement the dark notes of EXCELLENCE 70%, with hints of red and black fruit elevating the subtle vanilla character of the chocolate. A full-bodied wine with strong aromas, Boet Erasmus’s robust chatacteristics are nicely mellowed out by the chocolate’s expertly balanced flavour profile, resulting in a smooth and satisfying finish that lingers enticingly on the palate.
