On a humid Friday night, we headed to aMBUSH Art Gallery’s trendy exhibition space in Sydney’s inner-southern suburb of Waterloo for the official launch party of Mr Black's Cold Drip Coffee Liqueur. Admittedly, we both knew very little about Mr Black but were eager to try this award winning beverage, with our caffeine addictions being at an all time high during this stressful time in the semester.
As soon as we arrived, we headed to the industrial-styled bar and were given our first Mr Black beverage, the Black Americano. The taste exceeded any of our pre-determined expectations and for a good portion of the night, we were lining up for more. Mr Black’s refined taste, allows all of us coffee-lovers to now fulfill our caffeinated cravings socially with friends after dark.
The night’s eclectic atmosphere was enhanced by the Eat Art Truck and DJ Mr Belvedere, providing sweet food and tunes for the night. The crowded gallery was filled with stunned attendees, watching artists Dale Bigeni, Sprinkles and Ronstoppable, painting live on the gallery's bare walls (seen above). The art was not only evident at the event, but transferred onto Mr Black's packaging, with the unexpected image depicted on the bottle, only visible once consumed. This is a forewarning for those purchasing the reasonably priced liqueur in the future; the image is so awesome that it may strongly encourage you to drink excessively to see the whole thing.
All in all, this launch party paralleled the trendy, artistic and fresh taste of Mr Black perfectly. When this gem starts distributing to an array of Sydney bars, we know that it will determine where we socialise in the future.
So our verdict is, that if you are a self-confessed coffee-lover that doesn’t want to comprise your cravings with your social life, then you need to try this liquid gold, yesterday. You can purchase Mr Black at the link below and follow their Facebook and Instagram to keep updated.
