WHAT IS IT?
Mr. Black is the original cold press coffee liqueur made right here in Australia. It is a bitter,intense spirit and coffee creation not intended for the weak of mind or faint of heart. This is a dark blend of pure Australian grain spirit and three specialty coffees made from single origin arabica beans from Papua New Guinea, Ethiopia and Brazil, all chosen for their aroma, flavour and finish. The spirit is cold infused, cold pressed and unfiltered to ensure the flavours and aromas of the liqueur retain the character and provenance of the coffee beans. There's overwhelming fresh espresso on the aroma, a bitter balanced body with a fine citrus edge and a toffee/marmalade finish. It's so good it took out gold at the International Wine and Spirits Competition in London in 2012.
The bottle itself is a piece of artwork in itself - drink it down to reveal the design on the back, the genius of local artist Dale Bigeni.
Alcoholic strength: 25% ABV
WHO'S BEHIND IT?
Mr Black was created by Tom Baker and Phillip Moore, the latter being the master distiller at Distillery Botanica located on the Central Coast of New South Wales. It took 9 months and over 240 trials to create the liqueur as we know it today. The beans are sourced via a local coffee roaster and once roasted, comes straight to the distillery where the cold drip method is used extract the best of the beans. This exceptional spirit is ground and cold-pressed by hand in tiny batches of 300.
