Mariah Carey is entering the alcohol beverage business. The iconic singer-songwriter has announced her new liqueur brand called Black Irish, which is in stores now. The name was inspired by Careyâ€™s heritage. Her mother is Irish American and her father was half Black and half Venezuelan.
Carey shared the announcement on Twitter on Monday afternoon. â€œIntroducing Black Irish ðŸ¦‹ Two years in the making. Truly a cause for celebration!!! ðŸ¸ðŸ¸ @goblackirish,â€ she tweeted.
Black Irish arrives in three flavors: original, white chocolate and salted caramel. The Original is described as the perfect blend of â€œdecadent Irish cream with aged Irish whiskey for a rich luxurious liqueur with aromas and flavors of freshly roasted coffee, milk chocolate, and warm spices.â€
Black Irish White Chocolate has â€œa slightly more refined and subtle chocolate flavor,â€ while Salted Caramel is â€œrich and creamy with sweet buttery notes of caramel and a touch of salt.â€
This isnâ€™t Careyâ€™s first time launching a beverage brand. In 2014, she partnered with Kevin Lilesâ€™ Go Nâ€™Syde to create a â€œButterflyâ€ flavor in support of her album, Me. I Am Mariahâ€¦The Elusive Chanteuse.
