Galliano Espresso


The eye-opening aroma of coffee is not exclusively reserved for mornings. Our espresso liqueur is the perfect way to keep drinking your favorite morning beverage in the evenings too. Coffee liqueur cocktails exist of a combination of bittersweet coffee and sweet liqueur. You can enjoy Espresso liqueur on its own as a simple after-dinner drink or add it to a cocktail to provide a robust earthy flavor. One thing is sure, our Galliano Espresso liqueur is a game changer in the coffee liqueur cocktails world.

Galliano Espresso is not like any coffee liqueur, but is a unique espresso liqueur with a more concentrated palate. The espresso liqueur contains two varieties of dark roasted coffee beans: 55% Arabica coffee beans from Colombia and Brazil and 45% Robusta coffee beans from India and Kenya. The Arabica coffee beans give a chocolaty creamy and delicate top note, while the Robusta contributes body and bitter coffee flavored tones. Therefore, the espresso liqueur is perfect for the deepest and most intense coffee liqueur cocktails with a balanced aroma.
