Australian spirits producer Manly Spirits is launching BlackFin Coffee Liqueur into the UK, to tap into growth at the premium end of this market.

Earlier this year Manly launched Australian Dry Gin, Coastal Gin and Marine Botanical Vodka, and it said is has had success with these in the UK so far.

To create Black Fin, Manly teamed up with local Australian brand, Seven Miles Coffee Roasters, to combine their passion for coffee with Manly’s premium spirits expertise. The partnership with originally forged in order to “make the ritual of a post-surf coffee even better”.

BlackFin is created with a concentration of sea minerals that are distilled from Manly Beach as well as naturally distilled native botanicals, and sustainable and responsibly-sourced coffee beans.

The coffee liqueur is described as having “a rich scent of freshly ground coffee, malty caramel, dark chocolate and a creamy complex taste that is not overly sweet”.

The recommended summer serve is with a light tonic water but it can also be enjoyed straight, with ice or in an Espresso Martini.

BlackFin is available through Enotria & Co (rsp: £24).
