Berry Bros adds to own-label range with a coffee liqueur
Berry Bros & Rudd has added a coffee liqueur to its own-label range, prompted by the company’s historic association with coffee.
The company’s premises at No.3 St James’s Street boasts the sign of a coffee mill over its doors, and when the shop was originally opened in 1698 it was known simply as ‘The Sign of the Coffee Mill’. The giant scales hanging inside the company’s reception are further testament to the business’s long history with coffee.
Now, 320 years later, the family-owned wine & spirits merchant has added an own-label coffee liqueur to its range.
Berry Bros & Rudd Coffee Liqueur has been crafted in London in partnership with Thames Distillers and Union Hand-Roasted Coffee. It is distilled at a higher strength (35% abv) for a more intense and fuller coffee flavour.
It is designed to be drunk over ice or shaken together with a shot of espresso for an Espresso Martini.
Lizzy Rudd, chairman, said: “Coffee was where the business started back in 1698, and so it feels rather nostalgic but incredibly appropriate to be offering a coffee-based product to our customers once again.
“Having already relaunched our London Dry Gin earlier in the year and providing a new classic range of whiskies under our Berry Bros & Rudd label, it is fun to have something a bit different to add to our range.”
The liqueur is available to buy now, priced at £26.50.
