"Our biodynamic apiary is found next to the forest where bees gather their exquisite nectar. Due to its unique location, the honey and pollen are dark amber in colour and thick with notes of the mossy earth and her flavours. These notes create an unusual alchemy with chocolate. The intricate process of combining honey with chocolate puts this recipe among the most technologically sophisticated recipes around. And, most importantly, it represents the terroir I come from." Domantis Uzpalis, chocolatier

Naive’s founder and chocolate maker Domantas Uzpalis believes that to create premium chocolate he needs to work closely with actual producers, not just the middle men, so that he can build great chocolates from the very start. Naive relies on Lithuania’s old fashioned agriculture and harvests wild ingredients from some of the world’s most pristine forests to create distinctly Eastern European chocolate. Inclusions like ambrosia, kefir, tahini, and porcini mushrooms are paired carefully with various cacao origins, then the ingredients are freeze-dried and ground with the cacao, resulting in bars with silky smooth textures that carry distinct aromas.
