Applewood Distillery - Espressocello

A project of pure passion that’s taken years to perfect, and Applewood finally did so with the assistance of Johnny Scott (Mighty Mighty Coffee) - who roasts and grinds the beans for this liqueur.

Applewood Distillery aim to promote sustainability in all they do at Applewood. This delicious liqueur is all about creating a product that may be been otherwise overlooked. How? Applewood create a brandy-base spirit distilled from local winemakers experiments that have gone wry. This project is their way of nullifying all forms of risk winemakers undertake with winemaking experimentation. Cheers to espressocello! 

The coffee beans used are imported exclusively from Mexico and cold-brewed. It an intense coffee-hit with a vanilla, chocolate and citrus dominant characters - and a dense palate-weight that’ll stretch in your espresso martini.

Being winemakers, we're two people incredibly passionate about the soil and produce we have in Australia. It's our contention to showcase products to the rest of the world that embrace Australian native ingredients and pay homage to the custodianship of the indigenous people who maintained the land for thousands of years. 

It's this passion that has driven us to start two wine labels, one that protects our farmers and another that protects our future. We've since taken these concepts and with our distillery, applewood - catapulted it into the horticultural realm - studying indigenous produce, it's beneficial effects on our land and the stories it can tell through incredible colours, flavours, and textures. 

We seek Australian identity in the products we craft and the services we offer. We seek ways to communicate this with an entirely new demographic. 
Our hope is that these Australian stories can one-day be heard on a global scale.

Mr Black - Coffee Liqueur2

Mr Black - Coffee Liqueur

The duo of Tom Baker and Phillip Moore have developed a bespoke method of distilling coffee at their Distillery Botanica, located at Erina, near Gosford in Sydney. Sourcing from Glee Coffee Roasters nearby the distillery has been key to the quality of the final product. ”Working with the local roaster we can talk to them about what's working, different flavour profiles, how dark we want the roast. So having a local supplier really helps,” says Baker, whose also the creator and distiller.

 The liqueur employs the cold drip method of brewing coffee. “We find it gives a richer and sweeter flavour and keeps its integrity,” explains Baker. "The control of oxygen (“the enemy of good coffee”) is fundamental to the process. From the day the coffee is roasted, it comes straight to the distillery. It’s then ground and goes straight into a water and alcohol bath that has all the oxygen removed using nitrogen,” says Baker. “It’s quite involved, but the result of getting all the oxygen out of it means you never get a stale coffee flavour.”

 Tasting note: [BATCH 005 tasted] Opaque deep burnt umber colour with sienna brown edges shows some viscosity. Top note is just-opened-coffee-bag-fresh over heavier aromas of cocoa and cafe creme. After several minutes in the glass the vibrancy drops a notch and the aroma shifts towards bitter dark chocolate. Creamy textured, light to medium bodied palate presents with rich mocha, vanilla and dark chocolate flavours rounded off by a very gently bitter finish to balance. Semi sweet coffee and caramel aftertaste. A judiciously poised and authentic addition to the genre.
