The first Chocolatory product from Nestlé Japan that isn’t made in Japan, has been unveiled. The product is called the Whisky Barrel Aged KitKat. The much beloved chocolate wafer cookies include chocolate from cacao nibs that have been aged inside Islay barrels for a period of 180 days. The new KitKat products were created by the acclaimed Japanese Patisser, Yasumasa Takagi.
These new KitKats are a part of the KitKat Chocolatery series that is considered the premium line for its products. The matured flavor offers a “delicate aroma and taste of whisky” that accompanies a deep and rich body. The packaging for the KitKats is also made with an aesthetic intended to induce a “feeling of relaxation” in the consumer.
Each of the KitKat bars will be retailing at ¥300 JPY, roughly $2.50 USD and is set for a Dec. 15th release at all 7 of Japan’s KitKat Chocolatory boutiques.
