Say hello to Dorsets first Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur - and one of the first of its kind in the UK.
A complex, dark and fruity brew that celebrates the espresso and owns the glass.
Conker's team have worked with Dorset's very own Beanpress Coffee Co., they've selected the very best speciality Brazilian and Ethiopian coffee beans that blow your usual ground coffee out the water. The Brazilian is roasted darker and longer to accentuate the cacao and caramel notes, bringing a robust coffee flavour that provides the backbone to the spirit. The Ethiopian coffee is roasted faster and lighter to accentuate the sweetness and natural citrus character, so adding a zesty highlight to the blend.
By brewing their liqueur cold, they didn't extract any of the acidic, bitter elements of the bean typical of a hot brew, thereby honouring the subtle fruity chocolate notes of each bean variety, creating a heady and hearty concoction that's as wonderfully dark as it is delicious.
Cold-brewing, however, requires more coffee than your usual hot cup of Joe, and in true Conker Spirit, we took that to the extreme - there's a ludicrous amount of Dorset-roasted beans in each beautifully black bottle.
Because the brew is so smooth with natural vanillas and caramels, just a touch of demerara sugar is needed to complete the alchemy - no flavourings, no additives, no nasty thickeners - just four simple ingredients and one ridiculously precise process.
Enough of the whys and wherefores, this tipple does all the talking. Its time to darken your glass with Conker Cold Brew and toast the arrival of the true espresso liqueur.
The Telegraph, Lifestyle, Food & Drink, 19th May 2017 wrote - My personal favourite is Conker - an exceptionally good cold brew coffee liqueur (with an abv of 25%). Made in Dorset, apparently they went through 96 recipes before getting this one – and its a goodie.
Good Food Guide, June 2017 wrote - unlike other coffee liqueurs on the market, which are often sickly sweet, this is balanced, with an intense espresso flavour. Plus it's free of additives.
FOODISM MAGAZINE - MAY 2017: "Conkers liqueur takes the wheat spirit thats used as a base for its acclaimed gin, and combines it with cold-brew coffee from the neighbouring Beanpress Coffee Co."
