Exclusively at the Starbucks Reserve Roastery in Seattle, Starbucks is now serving a new Gin Barrel-Aged Cold Brew.

Over the past few years coffee culture has taken off, and with it, countless cold brew beverages have been unveiled. In the same way that whiskey may be aged in wine barrels and other types of alcohol have their flavor subtly altered in this way, Starbucks' newest small-batch Rwandan coffee beans are aged in oak barrels at the Seattle-based gin distillery Big Gin.

As the barrels used by the partnering distillery originally held bourbon, the taste of the finished Gin Barrel-Aged Cold Brew from Starbucks is said to have a "warm botanical essence that highlights its bright citrus notes and caramel finish."
