Ovenbird Whisky Barrel Coffee

The Whisky Barrel coffee by Ovenbird Coffee Roasters is aged in freshly emptied whisky barrels from Auchentoshan distillery and Laphroaig distillery from Islay in Scotland. The beans are hand-rotated daily to ensure all the coffee comes into contact with the oak barrel over the course of several weeks.

After ageing the green beans, they are computer-free roasted to a medium roast (full city), which Ovenbird feels produces the perfect balance of whisky and coffee flavour.

It is the perfect complement to a chocolaty dessert or morning coffee and tastes great with oat/soya milk. Unfortunately no alcohol folks. Sorry !

Choose from:

  • Auchentoshan 12 Week
  • Auchentoshan 18 Week
  • Auchentoashan 21 Week
  • Laphroaig 2008 Cask

About Ovenbird Coffee Roasters:
Ovenbird Coffee Roasters, based in Glasgow, aim to provide artisan coffee that is accessible and approachable and want their coffee to taste great in all environments; from state-of-the-art espresso machines to simple homebrew devices. To achieve this, Ovenbird use a mix of traditional methods and progressive ideas. Davide, the founder of Ovenbird explains, "We roast without computers. We experiment with new and exciting flavour profiles. More 'bright' than 'big'. More taste than strength. More natural than instagrammable (though we are suckers for a photogenic cup). We also make some cracking whisky coffee. We test each batch by using our senses (mostly by taste) sometimes once, sometimes ten times. It has to be meticulous, of course".

The beans are ethically sourced from farms in east Africa and Central-South America, where growers who share Ovenbird's enthusiasm are selected to build long-lasting relationships.

Ovenbird began with a shared idea: to make outstanding coffee for outstanding people.
