From Myth to Reality
| In the aztecal legend, there was a powerful King, Quetzacoalt. Who stole the gods the cocoa tree called “cacahuatl”: he wanted to offer to his people its divine nectar, the “xocoalt”.|
Later, wishing to become immortal, the king drank a potion prepared by a wizard. He became silly, and left its people to rejoin the grounds of the paradise.
He promised to come back one day, placed under the sign of the reed.
On the 21 April, 1519, year precisely placed under the sign of the reed, the Spanish conquistadores arrived with Hernan Cortes.
The Aztecs, who were waiting impatiently for the return of Quetzacoalt envisaged for this day, confused him with Cortes. Without mistrust, the natives welcomed the conquistadores and offered them a bitter drink in gold cuts: The Xocoalt.
1520, the Spanish conquistadors brought seeds back home to Spain, where new recipes were created… and the drink’s popularity spread throughout Europe.
