Listen to Episode 70: Mr Black Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur”
Mr Black Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur was created five years ago in Australia by distiller Philip Moore and coffee-enthusiast and designer, Tom Baker. A first of its kind, Mr Black is a coffee liqueur made with single origin cold brew coffee and Australian wheat vodka. Utilizing cold extraction, and using a slow-drip method, the resulting liqueur has half the sugar and 10 times the coffee of traditional coffee liqueurs. It is truly a cold brew spirit for coffee purists.
The brand has been embraced by the international cocktail community and is already the number one selling Australian craft sprit in the US since they launched in NY last year. I was at the official LA launch a few months back and had the chance to interview co-founder Tom Baker and Mr Black’s Global Coffee Ambassador, Martin Hudak for this week’s podcast episode.
This week’s cocktail recipe is the Cold Fashioned:
1.5 oz Mr Black Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur
1 oz Rye Whiskey
Dash Orange Bitters
Orange Twist – garnish
Stir with ice. Serve in rocks glass. Orange twist garnish.
