The Cooper Spirits Co. has announced its new Slow & Low Coffee Old-Fashioned, the first-ever expansion of its Slow & Low brand.
The new expression, rolling out nationally this fall, is inspired by Café Brûlot, the classic coffee drink from New Orleans, where the Slow & Low brand first launched.
It is produced in partnership with Intelligentsia Coffee.
Slow & Low Coffee Old-Fashioned is 40% ABV.
“Slow & Low is more than a bottled cocktail, it’s a lifestyle, a complete mindset that celebrates a free spirit, the will to push boundaries and create new discoveries,” says Chad Solomon, the company’s director of trade advocacy and innovation. “This ethos is what led us to partner with Intelligentsia, an iconic player in the coffee industry. We were excited to collaborate with them, thereby innovating on both coffee culture and Slow & Low to bring a new version of the classic coffee cocktail, Café Brûlot, to life. Bold, bright and brimming with baking spice, our Slow & Low Coffee Old-Fashioned is made from a base of straight rye whiskey and thoughtfully sourced and extracted Intelligentsia Cold Coffee that is lightly sweetened with raw honey and demerara cane sugar, modified with aromatic bitters, and pointed up with navel orange peel. It clocks in at a muscular 80 proof and is devilishly delicious.”
“Cooper Spirits sought us out because of our coffee expertise. They genuinely cared about every ingredient that was going into this new launch,” says Bailey Manson, innovation manager, Intelligentsia Coffee, Inc. “In order to create a truly authentic coffee cocktail, Slow & Low spent a lot of time learning about how we think about coffee, how we approach it, what our sensory values are, and how we’ve approached other projects. We spent a great deal of time formulating and selecting the perfect coffee for this collaboration, as we didn’t want it to taste like generic roasted coffee. We’re excited to provide this unique and superior coffee cocktail experience for coffee and cocktail adorers to enjoy.”
