Black Squirrel Distillery unveils Ardilla Negra Maple Coffee Liqueur

The Buffalo distillery that is known for ingeniously using NY State maple trees to create its line of spirits, has struck sugary gold again. Black Squirrel Distillery is unveiling its third distilled product in the form of Ardilla Negra Maple Coffee Liqueur. The distillery, discretely camouflaged at the corner of Elmwood and Amherst, first opened a little over a year ago. Since that time, the outfit has been busy producing its initial varietal, Aged Maple Spirit, along with its spin-off product, Mapleshine (see products). 

Instead of using sugarcane byproducts, BSD resorted to using syrup tapped from NY State maple trees.

The newest distilled masterpiece to utilize Grade A New York State maple syrup is sure to become a household favorite in no time. According to the distillers, the maple has been blended with a proprietary cold brew coffee blend and aged Caribbean rum, giving the concoction a completely unique flavor profile that will appeal to a wide variety of coffee, maple and/or rum fans.

“We strive to innovate, and Ardilla NegraTM is no exception. This is the first ever maple coffee liqueur,” said President, Jason Schwinger.

On March 26, from 12pm to 5pm, the public is invited to taste and purchase Ardilla Negra, one week before the product rolls out with its distribution. The initial release will take place at the distillery – 1595 Elmwood Avenue, Buffalo.
