26% ABV / 500mL
Naked Dark Cacao is a bittersweet concoction of organic fermented cacao, a selection of earthy roots and a good measure of tangy yet floral lilly pillies.
Made right here in our distillery, we designed Naked Dark Cacao to be sipped neat as a digestif, ideally next to a roaring fireplace and accompanied by a couple of squares of dark couverture chocolate.
To make it, we source and macerate cacao grown by one of our geographical neighbours, the Philippines. Pre-fermented to bring out all that chocolatey goodness, we then leave the maceration for a month while giving it a gentle stir at regular intervals until the aroma becomes unbearably enticing. To this we add several infusions of bitter roots for a lingering bitterness and a handful of native lilly pillies (riberries) to lend a floral note. Finally, we add a decent lick of dark sugar to bind everything together with a velvety texture.
We use real ingredients throughout and deliberately avoid filtering the liqueur to ensure no flavour is filtered out, so you may notice some sediment and oils that may drift out of the liqueur over time. Simply give your bottle a quick shake and all will be normal again!
Contains precisely 0.0% artificial colours, flavours and preservatives. Vegan friendly (we don't use any animal products nor processes throughout). Gluten free.

All of our liqueurs, including Naked Dark Cacao, are bottled in recycled glass spirit bottles where possible. Between our lovely network of bars who help collect empty spirit bottles for us and the empty bottles that get spat out of our own tasting flight production line, we've managed to build up a locally sustainable supply of bottles. These bottles are given a "rough massage" to strip the labels off, then a hardcore hot rinse and a final polish up before being revived with a new liqueur filled life.
Fantastic addition to my espresso martinis - will buy again! Also thanks for the super quick postage!
Service was excellent. Product was well wrapped. Product is a gift so hasn’t been tasted yet
Bought these for my hubby- he loved them & he can’t wait to try some of the other flavours!
