This all started back in 2017 when our distillers borrowed some Beer for Breakfast. Brewed with all sorts of breakfast ingredients, they took this tricked out stout, distilled it, and let it age in used bourbon and new char American oak barrels ... for two years! The result? A medium-bodied whiskey with a delicate malt caramel backbone, and a bit of spiciness from the scrapple. Yes, scrapple ... it's one of those breakfast ingredients we mentioned earlier.
Working with our friends at Rise Up Coffee Roasters, we then brewed up a batch of their Organic House Roast Coffee in our 50 gallon R&D still - making it the first ever pot-still brewed coffee! - before blending it with ground nutmeg, cinnamon and a touch a dark brown sugar.
The ultimate coffee liqueur, Booze for Breakfast encompasses our commitment to exploring goodess while celebrating the spirit of collaboration.
