GRADA honours the enterprise of growing, sourcing, roasting and brewing great coffee.
What is a Coffee + Spirit?
Honestly, we made it up. But for a good reason - Grada doesn’t currently fit into any category that exists on the bottle shop shelves. We started as a coffee company that sourced and roasted truly exceptional single-estate beans, and when we wanted to break into booze we kept that central to what we created.
So it’s coffee-first and coffee-driven.
Everything else that exists in Grada (only two other ingredients; Australian grain spirit and sugar) plays a supporting role. We use neutral grain at 96% so we can fit more coffee inside and less volume is given to spirit, while sugar is simply there to dial up the flavour - just like you add salt to your food.
Grada Coffee + Spirit
Coffee cocktails for a modern drinker — embracing the joy of the Espresso Martini but looking beyond it too.
Coffee, alcohol and sugar - the ingredients of an Espresso Martini and also of Grada Coffee + Spirit. This cool kid drink from London's 1980s is a perfect balancing act of bitter, sweet and strong.
Coffee Old FashionedRecipe
Tequila and Grada rewrite the old fashioned as you've always known it. A delicate hint of smoke from the mezcal, rum'n'raisin coffee sweetness and a distinctly vegetal backbone. The future of classics lies this way.
