MELBOURNE | Whisky and coffee are two of our favourite things to drink at home and when we’re out and about, and when we heard that Johnnie Walker was combining the two, we were very intrigued to see what it was all about. It’s all part of Johnnie Walker’s series of limited-edition experimental whiskies: Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch. The two that have launched in Australia this summer are the Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Espresso Roast and Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Rum Cask Finish.

To mark the Australian launch, leading bartenders were invited to explore new ways to enjoy the serves this summer, playing on the complementary flavour profile of the ever-more popular cold brew coffee, and the established desire for coffee-based cocktails. We have a Japanese cold brew coffee drip brewer at home, and have recently started experimenting with cold brew coffee cocktails ourselves. Just recently we did an espresso martini tasting flight with friends where we used three different types of beans to see how the flavour profile of each cocktail would change. The reason cold brew works so well in cocktails is because no heat is applied to the coffee grounds. The result is an intense, smooth coffee that’s low on bitterness, highlighting the more subtle fruit and floral flavours which tend to be hidden with hot brewed coffee.

Bottles of limited-edition Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Rum Cask Finish and Johnnie Walker Blenders’ Batch Espresso Roast will be available to purchase at Dan Murphy’s and BWS from January 2018 (RRP $55 for a 500ml bottle). We can’t wait to grab ourselves a bottle of each ourselves and start experimenting with creating our own cocktails. Keep an eye out on The City Lane – we’ll make sure we post the best cocktails we come up with in our recipes section. In the meantime, here’s a list of bars in Melbourne that are serving up cold brew cocktails right now.
