Adega de Palmela has now announced the launch of the brandy bonbons Villa da Palma.
“This expansion for the candy market aims to take Adega’s products to more consumers. Thus, the box of chocolates with 6 units is on sale initially at Adega de Palmela store, at Casa Mãe da Rota dos Vinhos and at Casa da Baia in Palmela”, the company said in a statement.
The Adega Cooperativa de Palmela has just launched the new brandy bonbons Villa Palma. The chocolates produced at Confeitaria de S. Julião are another creation of chef Nuno Gil.
The brandy bonbon Villa da Palma results from a partnership between Confeitaria de S. Julião and Adega Cooperativa de Palmela.
“They are a harmonization between the chocolate and the old brandy from Adega de Palmela and they seek to enhance this endogenous product of the region”, as Nuno Gil mentioned in the publication ‘New in Setúbal’. The soft texture of the brandy, with aromas of orange peel and nuts gets mixed with the velvety and creamy chocolate in a perfect combination of flavors.
