Artisan coffee liqueurs, balanced and enhanced by unique blends of spices, bring brilliance and depth to a White Russian. Here, our four favorite bottles.
($13; 375 ml; astorwines.com)
This classic rum-based liqueur has a familiar dark chocolate–vanilla flavor that's bold and sweet, nodding to roasted coffee on the lingering finish.
($15; 375 ml; hitimewine.net)
Featuring a rich, dark-roast coffee flavor with a surprising anise note, this thick, velvety liqueur is made from both arabica and robusta beans.
Spirits Corretto Coffee Liqueur
($26; 750 ml; applejack.com)
Mild and smooth with a
cold-brew flavor softened by cane sugar sweetness and a cinnamony spice, this liqueur is made from beans selected by a local blind roaster who uses his heightened sense of smell and taste to discern the most intense coffee aromas and flavors.
