Toussaint Coffee Rum Liqueur

Real espresso taste
Nose : Rich espresso coffee notes up front balanced with background sweet fruity notes of coffee. Subtle hint of aged rum comes through.
Palate : A smooth opening with warming notes of coffee and chocolate filling up the mouth with a light spicy finish.
Finish : Lasting dry finish, with lingering notes of espresso and a delicate sweetness.

« Pronounced ‘Two-Son’, this coffee liqueur is named after the architect of Haiti’s independence, General Toussaint L’Ouverture, also known as Napoléon Noir (The Black Napoleon). Toussaint is made with an infusion of Arabica coffee beans in 3 year old Caribbean rum with 250 grams of sugar per litre.
General Toussaint was born in 1743 on the French Caribbean Island of Saint Domingue, the western part of which became the independent republic of Haiti in 1804, after he successfully led a slave revolt.
Launched in the 1990s, the flask shaped bottle is designed to fit into a refrigerator’s door. The label was redesigned in 2013 when the brand was re-launched and production moved to the UK.

Appearance: Clear, deep amber with bronze tints.
Aroma: Heavily roasted coffee beans, espresso, tiramisu and dark chocolate with nutmeg spice.
Taste: Strong espresso coffee with a burnt note – burnt toffee and faint smokiness. The sugar is a perfect balance so the perception of this liqueur is not sweet.
Aftertaste: Espresso coffee and spice with lingering burnt toffee. » – Rating 5+ /5 Diffordsguide

Inspired by a revolutionary who changed the world !

Toussaint Coffee Rum Liqueur is inspired by the history and landscape of Haiti, the motherland of the revolutionary Toussaint L’Ouverture. For hundreds of years, Haiti has harvested coffee and sugar, first on the French-owned plantations and then throughout the country, by the free people of the land.

Toussaint Coffee Rum Liqueur is made from a base of aged Caribbean rum, created with sugar which is harvested, distilled and aged in oak casks, and the finest Arabica coffee. The rum creates a sweet, woody, tobacco base balanced with the rich espresso notes from the coffee. Just a touch of sugar is added to deliver an authentic espresso flavour.

COFFEE
The coffee is selected from the finest blends of Arabica coffee, which is considered the best-tasting coffee in the world. This gives a rich espresso aroma with earthy and chocolate notes and a bittersweet taste.

RUM
Rum is crafted across the Caribbean, made from molasses and the sugar cane harvested on the islands. Toussaint uses Caribbean rum which has been aged for three years in oak casks, giving a rich and rounded caramel flavour, balanced with spicy wood and tobacco.
