Whiskey and coffee has been around for a while, just ask the Irish. Jack Daniel’s has jumped on the coffee bandwagon and created their own coffee infused with their famous Tennessee whiskey. In 2011, Jack Daniel’s created a line of coffee that tried incorporating Jack Daniel’s flavoring into the grounds rather than the whiskey itself, which was discontinued. Not too long ago Jack Daniel’s came out strong with a line of coffee in which the beans are soaked in the actual whiskey for a long period of time.
I regret to say, ladies and gents, that there is no alcohol content in this coffee. The roasting process takes away the alcohol, but leaves a smooth, rich cinnamon flavor on the coffee grounds. One customer wrote, “My girlfriend bought me this for Christmas and I must say it is the best coffee I have ever had. It is such a unique flavor that makes the coffee feel more refreshing while you drink it. It is just a hint of the whiskey flavor and I would suggest that this is meant for people who like to drink their coffee black otherwise cream takes away from the flavor.”
Jack Daniel’s gives a description on their website stating, “Our unique blend of gourmet coffee is 100% Arabica, infused with authentic Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey, and roasted medium to provide a full-bodied rich flavor. The distinct caramel and vanilla notes of Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 Tennessee Whiskey are evident in each sip.”
Huffpost employees tried the coffee as well with one person saying the coffee “smelled like you should be in some sophisticated person’s house surrounded by thick armchairs and mahogany”.
I don’t know about you, but whiskey and coffee happen to be two of my favorite things and I will definitely be giving good ole’ Jack Daniel’s coffee a try.
