In the Glass
Deep, dark mahogany color.
The nose is filled with the scent of strong, dark roasted coffee with accents of molasses, brown sugar, allspice, and hints of dark chocolate.
The palate echoes the nose delivering a rich but vibrant roasted coffee core with flanking notes of brown spice, cocoa, and burnt sugar.
Intensity & Texture
Medium-bodied with layers of coffee and cocoa with a bright dose of acidity giving perfect balance and making this Coffee Liqueur a pleasure to sip neat.
At BevX we prize balance in our beverages and it is all the more impressive to find balance in a Liqueur where higher sugar levels are a given.
Sold in the middle $20 range it sits on par with the quality, contemporary Liqueurs on offer while being a cut above the crowd.
After the rebels stormed Griffin's Wharf in Boston in 1773 to take part in what we now call the Boston Tea Party, coffee became the drink of patriots. Griffin's Wharf 1773 Coffee Liqueur takes its name from this historic place giving honor to the movement for liberty. This Coffee Liqueur is made with a blend of beans from Central and South America roasted at high temperatures in order to produce a full-bodied brew with smoky accents. We love the balance and complexity found in this tasty Coffee Liqueur with restrained sugar and bold coffee flavors.
How to Enjoy
