The City said, “The Chocolate and Wine Paring event speaks for itself – wine accentuates any meal and chocolate is no exception. Some say it can’t be done, pairing wine with chocolate, but if you choose the right wine to complement the right chocolate it can be a remarkable pairing experience whether you are pairing the sometimes subtle, creamy nuances of a delicate white chocolate or the lively bold tones of dark chocolate with a favorite wine.

“Absolut Elyx is the luxury expression of Absolut vodka, the spirit that carved out a niche for itself by always doing things differently. By developing relationships with fellow cultural pioneers, Absolut vodka grew in stature and with its single-minded commitment to quality matched only by its passion for hospitality, it wasn’t long before this little ‘water’ from Sweden became the global icon it is today.

“Born out of a desire to create a truly luxurious embodiment of this global icon, Elyx is forged from the same DNA as Absolut vodka. The Festival has worked closely with the Hamilton Princess and the chefs from Marcus’ to create the Ultimate Absolut Elyx Experience for ticket holders – a tantalizing 5-course dinner with paired vodka cocktails. Tickets to the dinner are $149, inclusive of gratuities.
