About This Nassau Tour
Imagine the skull and crossbones, the Bahamas' centuries-ago unofficial flag, whipping in the sea breezes overhead. These were the days of piracy. These were the days of the notorious Captain John Howard Graysmith building his private mansion (paid for with plundered riches) in Nassau. Today, that colonial mansion still stands as the Graycliff Hotel, a mecca for jet-set travelers, and also your host for your chocolate-making experience.
Be forewarned, chocoholics. This experience is sure to blow your mind, and your diet. Graycliff Chocolatiers handcrafts its craveable confections in dark, milk, and white chocolate. Bars. Filled bonbons. Truffles. Barks. Even cocktail pops.
Salivating yet? Well, don your sterilized gown, hat, and booties and let the factory tour begin. You'll learn all about the history of chocolate making and the rich lineage of the regional cocoa beans used in Graycliff Chocolatier's products. Plus how these beans are roasted, ground into nibs, stone ground into liquid chocolate, and poured into molds to become the delectable candies you can't wait to sink your teeth into.
Luckily, that wait won't be long. In the classroom , you can sample e chocolate made on the premises. Then apply your newly acquired dipping, glazing, and molding techniques to make your own confections with Graycliff chocolate and a variety of fresh and unexpected ingredients, which can include anything from in-season Bahamian mangoes, limes, sea grapes, and genips to tomato-basil and bacon.
It's OK to have dessert first
The culinary delights of Graycliff extend beyond your chocolate tasting. The property's restaurant was the first fine dining establishment in all of the Caribbean to receive a perfect five-star rating. The menu boasts a rich fusion of Bahamian delights and European fare. And the wine cellar, that houses one of the world's largest collections of fine and rare wine, is home to more than 250,000 bottles. So go ahead and chase that Graycliff chocolate with a glass of vino over a gourmet lunch or dinner. It's vacation, so there are no rules!
