Jim Beam Is Making Whiskey-Infused Coffee
If you prefer your Irish Coffee spiked with the banjo twang of Kentucky bourbon, Jim Beam just released the perfect caffeinated collection for you. International whiskey giant Beam Suntory is getting into the java game with a new line of five Jim Beam bourbon-infused coffees. Made with White Coffee’s Arabica beans and infused with the distillery’s original bourbon, a hot cup may not give you a boozy buzz, but it’ll sure give your morning some extra flavorful pep.
According to a press release, the line includes five different flavors: the caramelly, oaky and vanilla-forward Original; the slightly smoky Bourbon Vanilla; the sweet and spicy Cinnamon Stick; the warming Spiced Honey; and the rich Signature Dark Roast.
Jim Beam’s new collection is the latest addition to the ever-growing whiskey-coffee hybrid market, which includes Jack Daniel’s-infused coffee brand and Starbucks’ mixed coffee drinks, made from beans aged in Woodinville Whiskey Co. barrels. The line between happy hour and breakfast continues to get blurrier and blurrier, and we couldn’t be happier about it.
