Product of: United Kingdom
Distilled in a similar manor to gin, this clear botanical spirit is made by first cold-brewing a rich coffee with locally-roasted Malabar and Enorga beans from the Monsoon Estates Coffee Company. This is then distilled with orange peel and coriander seeds.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 30/05/2017
(sample bottle batch 01/2016, 1 of 2000 bottles) Crystal clear.
Dairy chocolate, cacao beans, roasted coffee beans, Terry's chocolate orange and faint spearmint-like scents.
Coffee and chocolate powder with subtle zesty orange, faint cardamom and mild peppery spice. Slightly sweet.
Creamy dark chocolate and coffee with subtle zesty orange and lingering spearmint-like freshness.
Complex and delicate, this flavoured spirit is perhaps more chocolatey than it is coffee-flavoured. Subtle notes of zesty orange add freshness. Serve directly from the fridge or freezer. Very good but obviously not an "Espresso Martini" or even a "Martini".
