Luxury chocolates at Bacchus Epicerie

At Bacchus Epicerie, Manila’s one-stop shop for gourmands, chocolate-lovers will swoon with pleasure at the finest, premium chocolate concoctions from world-renowned brands — Venchi chocolates from Italy and Valrhona chocolates from France. 

“Many would attest that it all lies on the country of origin,” said Bacchus Epcerie owner Alexander Lichaytoo. “But the true mark of a luxury chocolate lies in the seamless combination of all these things.”

Venchi and Valrhona are considered one of the finest chocolate-makers in the world, offering a wide array of innovative chocolate products, including chocolate caviars, chocolate spreads and chocolate tobaccos.

While Valrhona attributes its popularity to the amount and type of cocoa used in making its chocolates, Venchi, known across the globe as a supplier of high quality raw chocolate for chocolatiers, is popular for its line of sugar-free chocolates.

Bacchus Epicerie is located at R1 Level, Power Plant Mall, Rockwell Center, Makati City.
