Maryland’s Lyon Distilling Co. has added a variety of spirits to its roster since it opened in 2013, from white and dark rum to rye whiskey. Launched in 2018, their flagship liqueur uses rum as a base and is infused with coffee from a local roaster. Before being bottled at 72 proof, it’s sweetened with a touch of chocolate.

  • Coffee/Chocolate Liqueurs
    Both coffee and chocolate liqueurs are often dark in color and tend to use real coffee and/or chocolate in its creation. But artificial flavors can be used. Often neutral spirits are used as the base but any liquor family can be used.

Tasting Notes

"With notes of vanilla, chocolate and coffee on the nose, Lyon Coffee Rum Liqueur is reminiscent of chocolate-covered espresso beans. At 36% ABV, there’s significant heat from the rum base on the palate, followed by notes of bittersweet chocolate. It has a slightly oily texture, so the spice lingers on the tongue for a while, but eventually fades to a nice, rich chocolate and creamy coffee finish. This liqueur would work well in cocktails or served over ice for slight dilution."
