SAN DIEGO (August 20, 2020) – First Light Coffee Whiskey, the trusted three-time award winning and Original Coffee Whiskey brand, has unveiled their flagship blends, First Light Original Coffee Whiskey and First Light Dark Roast Coffee Whiskey. Both spirit options fuse together two familiar flavors creating a premium whiskey experience for those seeking to elevate any adventure.
The Original Coffee Whiskey features organic raw agave and all-natural coffee extract that blend seamlessly with the smooth warmth of premium corn whiskey. The Dark Roast Coffee Whiskey blends similar high quality ingredients as the original, while showcasing bold, deep coffee notes with hints of chocolate and caramel.
“We wanted to create quality spirits that weren’t filled with artificial flavors or high fructose corn syrup,” said Ryan Espinoza, Co-Founder of First Light Coffee Whiskey. “We are excited to introduce First Light to the industry and offer consumers whiskey made of real ingredients to take on their next summit climb or to a family BBQ.”
First Light recently secured three notable accolades at the 2020 SIPS Awards, the world’s only internationally recognized consumer judging spirits competition. First Light Original Coffee Whiskey won a double gold award and the Dark Roast Coffee Whiskey achieved a platinum.
“Taking home multiple awards from an international consumer tasting competition was a big win for our team,” said David Elizondo, Co-Founder of First Light Coffee Whiskey. “We are listening to our consumers and will continue to deliver unforgettable products aligned with our founding principal: quality without compromise.”
