Uninspired by overly sweetened coffee liqueurs, Conor Coughlan established Bayview Beverages Ltd in 2015 to create a new type of drink. The vision? To bring the finest speciality coffee & Irish whiskey together, without the high sugar content of a coffee liqueur. Two and a half years later, Black Twist Hard Coffee was launched - the first cold brewed coffee spirit of its kind.
By fully immersing only the finest ground coffee in Irish whiskey and slowly cold brewing, they create an award-winning spirit with less sweetness and more character. Black Twist is made using 100% natural ingredients of the highest quality, with Grade AA Arabica coffee sourced from Kenya and Irish whiskey distilled in West Cork. This all helps to create the perfect spirit for discerning coffee drinkers and a much more versatile cocktail ingredient.
Bayview Beverages Ltd will continue to promote responsible consumption of alcohol, including through social media posts dedicated to communicating this message. They aim to reduce the amount of waste material generated by 5% by the end of 2022 and collaborate with other businesses to find a way of reusing some of the ground coffee filtered from the final product.
