IMMORTAL MOUNTAIN Chocolates combine organic, fair-trade, unroasted, single-origin Peruvian cacao with whole natural sweeteners, herbs, fruits, and sea salts to produce an intensely pure dark chocolate experience. The cacao varietal we source is a natural cross-pollinated hybrid of Forastero and Criollo cacao called Trinitario. On its own, Forastero cacao has a full-bodied initial flavor profile with few secondary tasting notes, while Criollo cacao has a more mild chocolate-y flavor, but unfolds with many secondary notes. The crossing of these two varieties in nature results in a cacao bean with the best flavor qualities of both parents! Our Trinitario cacao beans are cured in their own fruit pulp, gently dried (not roasted), and ground into cacao paste and cacao butter from which we craft our signature Immortal Mountain chocolate flavors.
Each element we include is organic or wildcrafted, and minimally processed to preserve the integrity and nutrients our sacred Earth provides. We are sourcing an increasing number of home-grown ingredients from our own beyond-organic farmstead. These chocolates, handcrafted on-site in small batches, are made with fresh ingredients and are perishable; refrigerate to store until ready to be enjoyed. For the fullest flavor experience, bring to room temperature before indulging, and enjoy within six months of creation date on back of package.
Immortal Mountain Botanicals are all handcrafted on-site using chemical-free, homegrown beyond-organic herbs with all-natural and organic components. No artificial ingredients are ever used.
Founded in 2009, IMMORTAL MOUNTAIN is a two-acre working permaculture homestead with Chocolate, Farmstead, and Botanical offerings. Located near Front Royal in the Appalachian Mountains of northern Virginia, our farm's focus is on regenerative agriculture. Native plant species, perennial fruit and nut trees, culinary and medicinal herbs, log-grown culinary mushrooms, and annual heirloom & micro greens are amongst our cultivation. It is our mission to bring the highest integrity herb-infused chocolates (made with wildcrafted, organic, fair-trade Peruvian cacao), sustainably grown foods, and holistic botanicals from our Mountainside to you. Your support is helping us to tend, heal, and cultivate the landscape we inhabit and revere.
