    Updated on January 2, 2024

    Jägermeister Cold Brew Coffee

    Germany’s Jägermeister is known for its intense herbal flavor, often served as an iced drink from a machine behind the bar. In 2019, the brand launched this new expression, combining the 56 plants of the liquor with the flavors of cold brewed coffee. The results are quite pleasant, as the chocolate notes blend well with the characteristic floral bouquet. Also try this ice cream for maximum effect.

    Jägermeister has been rebooted in recent years, starting with the launch of Manifest, which is barrel-aged and uses more herbs than the original. The latest new product is Jägermeister Cold Brew Coffee, which basically adds coffee and cocoa beans to the formula, resulting in a liquor that is definitely recognizable as Jäger, but with an underlying coffee stream. Not everyone will like it, but Jäger and Amaro fans in general should give it a try.

    St. George NOLA Coffee Liqueur

    If you’ve never had some old-fashioned coffee liqueur before, you’re missing out. The earthy and toasty notes pair well with the sweetness and spices of bourbon or rye. Try this St. George Spirits of California coffee liqueur, based on the flavors of New Orleans coffee. This means that chicory root is part of the recipe, along with sugar cane, vanilla beans, and Yirgacheffe coffee beans.

    This St. George Spirits of California spirit was inspired by the flavors of New Orleans. It’s made with coffee beans, chicory root, Madagascar vanilla, and organic cane sugar, and the end product is a beverage that can be served on its own or used to make a cocktail. The distillery chose to use Yirgacheffe coffee beans, based on what it describes as their lively and fruity qualities.

    New Orleans is famous for its chicory root coffee. St. George’s distiller Dave Smith recreated these woody and earthy flavors in his NOLA coffee liqueur. Yirgacheffe roasted coffee beans, French chicory root, Madagascar vanilla beans, and organic cane sugar combine to make a deeply complex coffee liqueur. Layered with roasted flavors, the liqueur has an underlying bitterness that is rounded off with a sweet, fruity finish.

    Mr Black Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur

    Mr. Black Cold Brew Coffee Liqueur sits at the top of many of the best coffee liqueurs lists, including the # 1 spot on It comes from Australia and consists of a blend of Arabica coffee with Australian vodka. Enjoy the 25% ABV liquor alone or in a delicious cocktail. It is not overly sweet and has a deep and satisfying coffee aroma and flavor.

    Mr. Black’s original Cold Crew coffee liqueur became a hit here in the United States when it was released a few years ago. The Australian brand uses a slow drip cold extraction method, with no other added flavor, to produce this sweet coffee liqueur. Known bars like Dante and The NoMad have also fallen in love with him. The last expression is this single origin version of the original. There are only 6,000 bottles available, 600 of which are for sale here in the United States.

    The coffee used in this Australian-made liqueur is completely cold brewed, uses a higher ratio of coffee to water, and spends more time steeping than traditional cold brewing. The liqueur is bitter but balanced with chocolate, caramel, and citrus, and ends with caramel and jam. Mix it in a White Russian or with mezcal for a smoky taste.

    Tia Maria Liqueur 20%

    Tia Maria, an Italian coffee liqueur, is almost as well-known as Kahla. It’s not as sweet as its slightly more well-known sibling, which makes it great in an espresso martini, but it’s also good over ice cream, in coffee, or in any classic coffee-flavored drink. It has a mild vanilla and coffee flavor and is created with Jamaican Blue Mountain Coffee and cane spirit (rum). A 750 mL bottle costs around $30. Tia Maria has a 20% alcohol by volume (ABV) (40 proof).
