Bitter, robust and nutty coffee flavors are dominant in these freshly emptied Cathead Distillery Chicory Barrels that aged Hoodoo Chicory Liqueur.

Claimed to be filled under a full moon, these full-size (53 gallons) Cathead Distillery Chicory Barrels put a whole new meaning on the word “specialty.”

What is chicory? It’s a caffeine-free plant that has a robust, bitter flavor similar to coffee. Hoodoo Chicory Liqueur gets its name from the Afro-Caribbean mysticism, which has elements and traditions that have major influences in Southern culture, including blues music.

After aging Cathead’s Hoodoo Chicory Liqueur for 5+ months, one thing’s for sure: no other barrels have this kind of flavor profile. The bottled product falls under the coffee liqueur category, so expect to pull notes of coffee, espresso, blackened walnut and charred chicory from the oak when barrel-aging your brew.
