Mr Black Coffee Liqueur has been making waves across the global bar scene since 2013. The premium cold brew coffee liqueur is handmade in Sydney, Australia and is made 300 bottles at a time with speciality-grade coffees from top growing regions.

It was founded in 2013 by Philip Moore, one of Australia’s foremost distillers, and Tom Baker, coffee-nerd and designer, determined to take coffee culture into the night.

Mr Black Coffee Liqueur is a smooth, rich and intense taste that makes the perfect espresso martini, or simply drink over ice. Mr Black Coffee Amaro takes inspiration from classic Italian Amaro and Australian coffee culture. It’s a bittersweet blend of 14 bitters, botanicals and Arabica coffee, a refined bitter with a bright citrus finish. Mr Black has ten times the coffee and half the sugar of traditional coffee liqueurs.

It’s already well established in the premium London sector, in venues such as Swift, American Bar, The Savoy, Happiness Forgets, The Artesian and The Coral Room. Now, they’ve joined our portfolio to make some more noise throughout the UK.

On Mr Black joining the portfolio, Jeremy Hill, our MD said:

“This is not a case of brand serendipity; we wrote down a list of key brands we wanted in our business and set out to model ourselves towards being their perfect distribution platform. We’re delighted to say that Mr Black was one of the first on that list.”

Paul Ferguson, our Co-Founder, added:

“We’re thrilled to have Mr Black join our portfolio; it’s a truly quality liquid with beautiful branding. We can’t wait to join forces with the Mr Black team to take UK coffee culture into the night.”

Tom Baker, Co-Founder of Mr Black, said:

“We’re excited to join the team at Proof Drinks as we continue our growth in the UK and our company mission to bring craft coffee into the night.”
