Cold Brew – Conker Spirit
Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur (25%) from the wonderful Conker Spirits folks in Dorset, is made with a combination of Brazilian and Ethiopian coffee beans from Dorset’s Beanpress Coffee Co., both of which have been roasted differently to compliment their flavour profile. By roasting Brazilian beans darker and for longer, it really makes the most of the cacao and caramel flavours, whilst Ethiopian beans are roasted faster and lighter, to bring out the sweetness and natural citrus character.
This Premium Coffee Liqueur is for people who love great alcohol, coffee and care about its impact on the environment and the farmers that produce it. They work with the changemakers in sustainability, to bring the ethics and quality of craft coffee to the cocktail.
Espresso Martini? – With Conker Coffee Liqueur there’s no need to add Coffee or Vodka, just 70ml Cold Brew, 30ml water. We know! It’s delicious too…
