On most days, sounds of cocoa beans being picked, roasted, pounded, melted and molded ring out from Scott Witherow’s East Nashville, Tennessee, chocolate factory. While the noise emanates from its various sources, strangely, the work goes on with quiet efficiency.
Olive & Sinclair’s artisanal chocolate is made with what Scott describes as the “new old-fashioned way”. His original inspiration was grits. If corn could be ground
into tasty bits with the machines that were available to him, why not cocoa beans? That turned out to be a bit simplistic. So, he got the right machines and O&S has never looked back.
By the way, one of Scott’s biggest fans, Gwyneth Paltrow had this to say: “The cinnamon chili chocolate is the best interpretation we’ve tried”.
Olive & Sinclair chocolate. Get you some.
