If the Aztecs, Mark Twain, and Jacques Torres had to come to a consensus on chocolate, Olive and Sinclair would make it—and sell it with as much success as Rising Star Scott Witherow is achieving with his passion, talent, and distinctly Southern chocolates. To set his bean-to-bar operation apart, Witherow uses brown sugar in all his bars. There’s buttermilk in his white chocolate, too. Hell, the ham-god Allan Benton smokes his cacao nibs—the ones that aren’t aged in whiskey barrels. Recently moved into newer, larger digs (decorated with Witherow’s flea market finds), Olive and Sinclair now has a retail space and will open up tours soon, so visitors can see just how much work goes into roasting, winnowing, grinding, flavoring, and meticulously molding chocolate. There are no short cuts at Olive and Sinclair, just the pure joy of making some of the South’s premier chocolate.
