Country of origin: AUSTRALIA
Mr Black is a Cold Press Coffee Liqueur.
Established in 2012 in Australia, which is often cited as having the most innovative coffee cultures in the world, Mr Black was created by designer Tom Baker and Philip Moore, one of Australia’s highest awarded distillers. The two men were united by a love of bitter, black beverages and joined forces to make Mr Black – a dark and decadent spirit with an unadulterated kick.
As the saying goes, good things come to those who wait and with Mr Black, that’s certainly the case. The process to make Mr Black is a slow one.
The coffee – single origin Arabica coffee beans from Ethiopia, Brazil and Papua New Guinea are chosen for their distinctive flavours to create a house blend.
Low and slow – cold extraction produced a full-flavoured coffee without the acidity and eye-squinting bitterness of an espresso.
Cold press – a basket press is used to extract the rich liquid from inside the coffee infusion. Time consuming, yes, but worth every minute.
Coffee over spirit – the cold press coffee is blended with pure Australian grain spirit, which allows the rich flavour of the coffee blend to shine through.
Every process in the making of Mr Black is handled at the tiny distillery on the central coast of Australia; from the sourcing of the coffee beans to the grinding of the coffee and the bottling of Mr Black (300 bottles at a time). This process, laid down by Tom and Philip, ensures that they are producing the best tasting Mr Black day in, day out.
