This coffee is said to be invented at the end of the 19th century on the north frisian island Nordstrand. At that time, they had a very ascetic priest, and the Frisians didn't drink alcohol in his presence. To deceive him, they mixed their rum into the coffee and then topped the coffee with whipped cream to prevent the alcohol from evaporating and giving away the smell. when the priest discovered the fraud, he is said to have exclaimed: You Pharisees!
So the beverage got the name "Pharisees".
