MR BLACK WAS ESTABLISHED IN 2012 BY DESIGNER TOM BAKER, AND ONE OF AUSTRALIA’S HIGHEST AWARDED DISTILLERS, PHILIP MOORE.
United by a love for black bitter beverages and mutual distain for every other product in the industry labelled ‘coffee’, Tom and Philip established Mr Black in 2012 to make the best coffee liqueur in the world.
Mr Black is entirely cold-extracted with no addition of flavours, preservatives, caramels or vanillas (generally used to disguise bad coffee or inferior process).
Cold extraction – as the name suggests – is done at significantly lower temperatures to espresso – 23 degrees in our case. The result is a less acidic brew with a rounder mouthfeel and big coffee flavour – perfect for creating a liquor.
Creating a coffee that can stand up to blending with spirits, Mr Black uses a significantly higher coffee-to-water ratio and longer steep time than traditional cold brew.
