Few flavors reflect the city of New Orleans as much as its coffee - unless you count the Sazerac cocktail.
These days, its ingredient list reads similarly to an Old Fashioned while its history is quintessentially Crescent City.
The Sazerac Company had been producing cognac for a couple of centuries already before setting up shop in New Orleans. Eventually, the Sazerac House - disguised as a coffee house, a common practice for saloons during the era - opened right next to the Merchants Exchange. Along the way, the Sazerac House introduced its signature drink, utilizing Peychaud's Bitters and absinthe. Building off the city's history as a port for receiving rye whiskey from other towns along the Mississippi River, the cocktail later replaced the absinthe with rye whiskey.
The result was one of the first branded cocktails, which combines the richness of rye with spicy notes of clove, anise and pepper, plus an invigorating citrus zest.
Merchants Exchange Sazerac Cocktail Flavored Coffee captures these distinctive flavors with a delicate light-roast made from 100% arabica beans. Brew up a pot, and experience the tradition for yourself.
