Mr Black has unveiled a new coffee liqueur, which has been created using the world’s most expensive and sought after coffee, the Geisha coffee from Panama.
Less than 300 bottles of the Mr Black Panama Geisha Coffee Liqueur have been made, with 50kgs of Camilina Geisha beans used. This particular lot of Geisha has just been awarded First Prize at this year’s ‘Best of Panama’ competition by the Specialty Coffee Association of Panama. Will Young, Founder and Director of Campos Specialty Roasters, who has sat on the international jury for the Best of Panama Competition five years in a row, has said this is one of best coffees he’s ever tasted.
Philip Moore, Head Distiller and Founder at Mr Black Spirits Co is thrilled to work with such a special product and creating a world first for Mr Black.
“I’ve always been fascinated with the flavours of coffee and it’s something I’ve been working with for years. To get hold of such an incredible lot from Roberto’s farm to create a coffee liqueur, is amazing. Months and sleepless nights have gone into this prize winning blend. I’m thrilled we now get to share it with the world,” Moore said.
The Mr Black Camilina Panama Geisha Coffee Liqueur will be available to taste from July 7 at the Rockpool Group nationally.
This limited edition will be available via ballot during July, successful applicants being notified August 12. For more details and how to enter the ballot, visit the Mr Black website. www.mrblack.co/geisha
