Toussaint Coffee Liqueur

Our Products: Other Spirits > Other Liqueurs

Liqueur de Café Toussaint is named after the famous Haitian soldier and statesman, General Toussaint L’Ouverture, who was born in 1743 on the North West coast of the French Caribbean Island colony of Saint Domingue, the western part of which became the second independent republic in the western hemisphere in 1804: Haiti. Prior to that date, the hero of Haitian independence, Toussaint L’Ouverture, (L’Ouverture being an addition to his name because he always found an ‘opening’ to attack opposing armed forces), successfully challenged the might of Napoléon. -Napoléon eventually appointed Toussaint Governor General of Saint Domingue, but later abducted him to France, where he was imprisoned in Fort de Joux in the Jura Mountains and where Toussaint, this remarkable leader, sometimes known as “Napoléon Noir”, died in 1803.

Liqueur de Café, the "DRY" coffee liqueur with espresso coffee flavour is created from selected natural tropical ingredients, first and foremost coffee, with a hint of Cocoa, Vanilla and Liquorice, steeped in fine spirits - for flavour and strength. It is then sweetened naturally. Alternatively, add a shot of Toussaint to your coffee, or drizzle a splash of Toussaint for the ultimate in decadent vanilla ice cream.

Closure: STELVIN

Alternative wine closures are substitute closures used in the wine industry for sealing wine bottles in place of traditional cork closures. The emergence of these alternatives has grown in response to quality control efforts by winemakers to protect against "cork taint" caused by the presence of the chemical trichloroanisole (TCA).

Screw caps or "Stelvin caps" are closures made only from aluminium material that threads onto the bottleneck. They are the predominant closure used by New Zealand wineries.[8][9] This can be attributed in part to the New Zealand screw cap initiative which promotes the use of screw caps instead of cork. Screw caps form a tighter seal and can keep out oxygen for a longer time than cork. These benefits aid in maintaining the wine's overall quality and aging potential.

Vino-Seal, or Vino-Lok, is a plastic/glass closure released by Alcoa. Since its introduction into the European market in 2003, over 300 wineries have utilized Vino-Seal. Using a glass stopper with an inert o-ring, the Vino-Seal creates a hermetic seal that prevents oxidation and TCA contamination.

Zork is an alternative wine closure that seals like a screw cap and pops like a cork. The Zork closure consists of three parts; an outer cap providing a tamper evident clamp that locks onto the band of a standard cork mouth bottle, an inner metal foil which provides an oxygen barrier similar to a screw cap, and an inner plunger which creates the ‘pop’ on extraction and reseals after use.

The traditional crowned bottle cap has been used in the sparkling wine industry as a closure during the bottle fermentation process (méthode traditionnelle). Normally the cap is replaced with a cork before shipping, though recently some producers are releasing wines using the crown cap as their closure.
