Kafe Anme (Coffee & Cocoa Liqueur), Ayiti Bitters Co.

Labbé and Dupré Barbancourt began distilling rum in Haiti from locally sourced clairin in 1862. In 1870, the brothers split to create their own distilling companies: Dupré founded Rhum Barbancourt and Labbé founded Jane Barbancourt Co., affectionately named after his granddaughter. Over time, the company’s name evolved to Berling S.A. and is today run by Jane’s grandson, Herbert Barbancourt Lingé.

Berling S.A. continues to advocate for artisanal Haitian spirits, either through distillation or sourcing and bottling a wide variety of expressions. Ayiti Bitters Co. is a collaboration between Berling S.A. and High Road Spirits that endeavors to bring attention to the rich flora and fauna of Haiti.

Tasting Notes

Over the past three decades the deforestation of Haiti, like much of the developing world, has outpaced any reforestation efforts. Shade cultivation for both coffee and cocoa optimize their yield in a warming climate and these two cash crops encourage reforestation across Haiti.

Coffee beans known as Typica, a variety of Arabica, combine with local cacao pods of the highest quality and other locally sourced botanicals for this decadent liqueur. The result is a bitter balance of coffee and chocolate with hints of orange zest. 35% ABV
