Midnight Oil Coffee Liqueur 500ml
Introducing Climpson & Sons Midnight Oil coffee liqueur.
A delicious, crafted and decadent liqueur this bottle forms the base of any great cocktail, as well as being delicious savoured over ice. Promising to change your perception on this classic liqueur, we’re using premium ingredients and unique brewing methods to give a modern twist on a bartender’s staple.
Ingredients and Method:
We source our coffee from all over the world, we have a plethora to choose from; for the After Hours range we've chosen a coffee from Brazil. This profile works well with stronger flavours and has a well rounded, full-bodied mouthfeel (also, Daterra Estate is considered the benchmark of sustainable coffee farming). This coffee is brewed using a flash-brew technique, brewing the coffee with hot water, then rapidly chilling it to extract and lock in all the flavour and delicate aromas you expect from an espresso. We then add cacao and bourbon vanilla from Madagascar.
We had to make sure that the alcohol was as good as the coffee and that's why we’ve teamed up with our neighbours East London Liquor Company (ELLC). Another company with a similar ethos to ours; high quality, accessible and local. We use their demerara rum from Guyana to make our Midnight Oil.
We knew our coffee liqueur was a real stand-out, but now it's only gone and won an award for being so tasty. We're happy to announce Midnight Oil has won the Best English Coffee award from the World Drinks Awards 2021.
Please note: We are only able to send one bottle per order. We are unable to ship this product outside of the UK.
Simply serve straight from the freezer or pour over ice. Sip and enjoy. Or hone your bartending skills at home with these suggested recipes.

Midnight Creeper is a 1968 album by jazz saxophonist Lou Donaldson. It’s also the name our Broadway Market neighbours Kansas Smitty's have given to their Midnight Oil cocktail. Like all their drinks, this one’s best stirred, shaking disturbs the jazz...
