Vietnamese Coffee Darkness:
Inspired by the flavors of Vietnamese coffee–traditionally made by mixing concentrated coffee with sweetened condensed milk – this infused Darkness base has a blend of organic robusta and arabica coffees from UP Coffee Roasters, vanilla beans, and coconut. After quality time aging in rum barrels, the rich coffee notes and enticing aromatics mimic the silky, bittersweet beverage with a distinctly dark twist.
This one, inspired by the impossibly complex and satisfying sauces native to south-central Mexico. Mole comes in almost infinite varieties, and this take features bittersweet chocolate, cinnamon, and a mild heat from guajillo chilies. Time well spent in bourbon barrels tempers the spice, adding a rounded, vanilla-esque sweetness.
Double Vanilla Darkness:
Darkness already has inherent notes of baker’s chocolate and dark fruit–making it the perfect candidate for a double dose of aromatic vanilla. Double Vanilla Darkness features rich cacao flavor, sweet vanilla, and a honeyed character from aging in spirit barrels that were previous used to age rye whiskey.
