“We are thrilled to have Chockie on board to drive forward Mr Black’s presence in the UK,“ said Olivia Kupfer, Global Brand Director on Mr Black.  “We have seen significant growth in the USA , driven by association with the Espresso Martini, establishing Mr Black to the #1 super-premium and #1 fastest growing coffee liqueur.  Now is the time to turn our attention to the UK market, where the Espresso Martini is the 5th most popular cocktail.  Chockie’s experience and contacts in the trade globally makes her the perfect partner to drive the brand forward.”


Mr Black’s specialty-grade cold brew coffee liqueur is already recognised in the UK trade as the go-to super-premium coffee liqueur – in large part because of its true coffee flavour. Discerning drinkers know that ingredients matter – better coffee makes better coffee cocktails.  The Mr Black team, full of certified coffee nerds, knows an Espresso Martini is not complete without Mr Black. Its iconic taste of freshly roasted coffee with notes of dark chocolate and caramel makes for an undeniably smooth finish.


Made by hand at their distillery and coffee roastery north of Sydney, Australia, this liqueur is a bittersweet blend of top-grade Arabica coffees and Australian wheat vodka. A first of its kind, Mr Black employs an entirely cold extraction, with no added flavours, fillers, or preservatives. Using a slow-drip method results in a more robust and sweet profile, creating a liqueur that is bold, complex, balanced, and unapologetically coffee.
