JACK DANIEL’S LAUNCHES WHISKEY-INFUSED COFFEE

jdcoffeeThe coffee, made with ground Arabica infused with Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7, promises to deliver the signature Jack Daniel’s whiskey flavor minus the alcohol.

Available in caffeinated and decaffeinated variants in both tins and packets, the coffee has gone on sale in the whiskey’s hometown of Lynchburg and online.

The coffee is due to be rolled out across the US this year, priced at $21.95 for an 8.8-ounce tin and $6.95 for a 1.5-ounce bag.

“We take a lot of care and pride in the products we craft and Jack Daniel’s Coffee is no exception,” said Charlie Newman, owner and roast master at World of Coffee.

This isn’t the first whiskey-infused coffee to hit the shelves. Last April Bulleit Bourbon released a limited edition Bourbon-infused coffee in partnership with London coffee house The Gentleman Baristas.

X Bulleit coffee was crafted from beans rested for two weeks in ex-Bourbon casks to allow the spicy notes of the whiskey to blend with the beans’ natural character. Two blends of the Bourbon barrel-aged coffee were created – espresso and filter.

NOTE: So we went to the website only to find both regular and decaf are on backorder.

Does Starbucks now about this?

Starbucks-rita?

Nope, I don’t understand this. Why? On the occasion I do stop by, it won’t be for a beer or wine. That’s my job. I serve very few coffee-laced alcohol-based drinks. But then again I get a different crowd.

Starbucks says it plans to roll out its Evening program—which includes beer and wine sales and specialty food items—to thousands of stores across the country over the next several years. Speaking to Bloomberg in recent days, Starbucks COO Troy Alstead said testing of the concept in Chicago, Atlanta and Southern California over the past three years has shown that adding beer, wine and other specialty items results in “a meaningful increase in sales” during the evening hours.

The company first sold alcohol in October 2010 at a Seattle store. In January 2012, Starbucks said it was expanding the test to as many as 25 locations in Chicago, Atlanta and Southern California. In Chicago, the after-4 p.m. menu includes fare such as truffle macaroni and cheese, chicken skewers, Chardonnay and chocolate fondue.
