New York…Rumors continue that at least one major US brand will soon be certified kosher. With most major brands already kosher, these rumors take on added importance. The Orthodox Union did announce last week that it has certified Heering Coffee liqueur. The liqueur is made from a recipe using only natural ingredients and with no additives or artificial colouring. The base is a smooth blend of Caribbean rum, coffee and cacao. "Cherry Heering has long been OU certified and I have no doubt that Coffee Heering will undoubtedly find its place of distinction within the ever growing worldwide kosher market place,” stated Rabbi Eliyahu Safran, OU Kosher's Vice President of Communications and Marketing in welcoming Coffee Heering to the ever growing list of the finest liqueurs that have attained OU kosher certification. The Heering Coffee was introduced for the first time on the world market during the UK Bar Show in June 2007. Kosher sources say that they expect an announcement shortly about the mystery major brand that will go kosher.
