Dorset’s first gin distillery, Conker Spirit, has been producing gin since 2014. With no age old expectations, a gung ho attitude, and a firm commitment to quality, Conker set out to make the best spirits they could by refining their recipes and striving to create innovative products that don’t slack on flavor. So far, so good, but their latest release really has people talking.
It all boiled down to this: Conker was sick and tired of other coffee liqueur on the market being too sweet and disappointingly weak on coffee flavor. So they rolled up their sleeves and got to work combining the distillery’s spirit with coffee beans from Brazil and Ethiopia in a masterful balancing act of blending and brewing–not to mention the signature roasting method that ensures every sip is layered with full bodied flavor. One year, 96 different recipes, and a serious caffeine buzz later, the Conker Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur was born. This cold brew liqueur is a coffee lover’s dream, dark, rich and the first of its kind to embody true espresso flavor. Their real secret to success is the cold brewing process. By cold brewing the coffee liqueur, they avoid all of the bitter flavors and instead accentuate the chocolate and citrus notes, for a smooth, full finish. Delicious on its own over ice, this master brew also serves as a great addition to cocktails.
