I know this will come as no surprise, but I love chocolate. So I thought it would be fun to showcase one my very favorite liqueurs, Godiva Original Chocolate Liqueur.
Godiva Original Chocolate Liqueur
Godiva is very well known for its chocolates, and it is a favorite in our home. Master Chocolatier, Joseph Draps, established Godiva in 1926 in Belgium. The name Godiva was in honor of Lady Godiva. She was a woman who had dedicated her life to the poor and oppressed. As legend would have it, she rode nude through the streets of Coventry, England to gain the end of an oppressive tax that was imposed by her husband on his tenants. The label/logo is meant to embody her spirit of selflessness, generosity, and personal leadership.
Godiva remained under the ownership of Joseph Drap until the late 60’s, when it was then acquired by Campbell’s Soup Company. It was then sold to Yildiz Holding in 2008, a Turkish company who owns Ülker group the largest consumer food and goods manufacturer in Turkey. Despite the changes, their well-guarded and time-honored recipes have been used and maintained for over 8 decades. In 1926, standards were first established in the utilization of the finest quality ingredients with an elegant and beautifully styled packaging. This approach has never wavered and is still in place today.
Godiva is now well-known, and a trusted chocolate brand. So it’s not hard to envision how their Godiva Original Chocolate Liqueur would be just as good.
This is what is said about Godiva Original Chocolate Liqueur:
Attractive aromas of creamy milk chocolate; sweet on the palate; fine and elegantly flavored; an excellent liqueur in the spirit of Belgium chocolate style.”
You can find Godiva Original Chocolate Liqueur at wine.com, bevmo.com, totalwine.com, amazon.com, totalwine.com and any good liqueur or wine purveyor.
Godiva Original Chocolate Liqueur is not only our family favorite but also one my brother’s all-time favorite liqueurs and one he will request as a gift whenever I visit. I’ll also admit that I feel the same way. It’s such a decadently delicious liqueur to serve as an after dinner aperitif. When you do serve this, you will find that no other dessert is necessary. It’s that chocolaty and that good.
Time for a glass…
