Rembrandt Chocolate Coins. Rembrandt van Rijn is historically one of the world’s most important artists and worked as part of the painters' guild in the Golden Age. In these exclusive artistic societies, the artists and craftsmen shared their knowledge and experience and perfected their style. As proof of membership, the members received a medal that they always carried with them. The guild medal of Rembrandt has been preserved and is the inspiration for the chocolate Rembrandtjes.
The Rembrandt Chocolate Coins are available in two sizes, a box of 6 coins, and a box of 12 coins. Each box contains the three flavours.
Three typical Dutch flavours:
Oranjebitter. A Dutch liqueur developed around 1620 to celebrate victory in battle. Nowadays, Oranjebitter is customarily consumed during festivities. Caramel white chocolate made with orange purée and bitter orange peel.
East Indian Spices. Hints of cinnamon and star anise; two of the many spices that were exported across the world by the Dutch East India Company during the Golden Age. Dark chocolate ganache with cinnamon, vanilla, star anise, cloves, mace, pepper and bay leaf.
Praline & linseed. Linseed was used as a basis for natural paint by Rembrandt. In addition, this cure-all is healthy and, in combination with praline, very tasty. Milk chocolate with hazelnut and almond praline, linseed oil and feuilletine.
