FIRELIT Coffee Liqueur was founded in 2009 by Jeff Kessinger, who developed the original cold brew coffee liqueur formula along with his two high school friends; Marcus Urani and Tyler Warrender, and with the help of James Freeman of Blue Bottle Coffee Co. Kessinger has worked with several distilleries, and is now located in the former Germain-Robin distillery in Mendocino
Jeff’s motivation? Commercial coffee liqueurs leave something to be desired. Jeff spent a couple of years figuring out how to make one that actually tasted great and thus didn’t need to be syrupy sweet. Want the best espresso martini ever? Make one with FIRELIT.
