As of Monday, the Seattle Reserve Roastery is using barrels from nearby Woodinville Whiskey to infuse Sulawesi (Indonesian) beans, which are being showcased in two drinks: a cold brew flavored with vanilla syrup, and a hot Con Crema pour-over with barrel-aged vanilla syrup, topped with cascara sugar and foam. The beans are also available retail.

Daily Coffee News reports the cold brew portion of the drink is “composed of a Brazilian blend that is roasted to a medium profile to accentuate smoothness and nuttiness,” and that “the beverage is not carbonated or nitrogenated, but it is packaged with liquid nitrogen” and has a “brandy-like aroma.”
Bad Larry’s Cold Hard Coffee begins distribution in May.
