Late Nights, Good times.

We’re Australian. We like coffee, we love a drink. So we made Mr Black. Both in a bottle. If you like coffee, drinking and having a good time, we’ll get along just fine.

Mr Black: A cold press coffee liqueuer.

Our History

United by a love for black bitter beverages and mutual distain for every other product in the industry labelled ‘coffee’, Tom and Philip established Mr Black in 2012 to make the best coffee liqueur in the world.

The Process


GOOD THINGS TAKE TIME, AND MR BLACK IS MADE EXCRUCIATINGLY SLOWLY.

THE COFFEE

It starts from the coffee. Specialty beans from Ethiopia, Brazil and Papua New Guinea are chosen for their flavour and texture, and roasted individually and ground in house.

LOW AND SLOW

Cold extraction produces a full-flavoured coffee hit without the acidity or eye-squinting bitterness of espresso. This process takes a day, but it's worth every minute.

COLD PRESS

A 65kg basket press (stolen from a winery) is used to extract the richly extracted coffee from within the grounds. The coffee is left deliberately unfiltered to retain the unadulterated coffee flavour.

COFFEE OVER SPIRIT

Our coffee is then blended with pure Australian grain spirit which allows the rich flavour of our coffee blend to shine through.
