Fruity, savory, and downright delicious, NOLA Coffee Liqueur is a rich, multidimensional spirit that engages the palate while still being a pure pleasure to drink.
We chose to work with Yirgacheffe coffee beans specifically for their bright berry, chocolate, and round fruity qualitiesflavors and aromatics that translated through our cold infusion process beautifully. The coffee’s contribution is complemented by the French chicory root’s plum/date notes and intriguing bitter undertones.
Our rich and satisfying NOLA Coffee Liqueur was inspired by our love for New Orleansstyle coffee, as well as by distiller Dave Smith’s own love story. (For more on that, read on...)
Roasted Yirgacheffe coffee beans, French chicory root, Madagascar vanilla beans, and organic cane sugar combine to create a coffee liqueur with dimension and depth. Just like the city of New Orleans itself, our NOLA Coffee Liqueur intrigues, engages the senses, and invites you to let go of expectations and give yourself over to a wholly delicious experience.
|Making a New Orleansstyle coffee liqueur has been on our wish list for years. When we were finally able to devote the time this project deserved in order to be its best, we were lucky to have the support of many local roasters and friends. In particular, we owe special thanks and a debt of gratitude to Brad and Kate Joyce of Jewel Box Coffee Roasters, Tal Mor of Four Barrel Coffee, and Alex Roberts of Roast Co. for their gracious support.
St. George distiller Dave Smith searched high and low for the perfect ingredients to create an homage to New Orleans. Ethiopian coffee beans, French chicory root, and Madagascar vanilla gave us just the balance of flavors we were looking for.
Working on Roast Co.’s Probat, Brad Joyce roasted our Yirgacheffe beans to perfection. Brad’s depth of experience and intuitive approach were critical to coaxing out the deep, fruity flavors that we wanted to showcase from the beans.
When our coffee grinder didn’t live up to the task, in true DIY St. George fashion we MacGyver-ed it and came up with another plan on the fly: Luckily, our grain mill gave us the perfect grind.
Our cold-infusion method ensures a thoughtful focus on the most elegant flavors and aromas that we love from the beans, while minimizing extraction of the astringent components of the coffee.
|Sipped neat, our NOLA liqueur is delicious alongside breakfast, dessert, and any meal in betweenwith each sip revealing a bit more character. In cocktails, it provides a touch of sweetness, earthy depth, and that robust roasted flavor that coffee lovers crave.
