Our pals at Iron Fish Distillery surprised us with a special gift: a featured cocktail made with our coffee! Better still, they said we could share the recipe with you. This luscious libation features KCW's own bourbon barrel-aged coffee infused into sweet vermouth, then mixed with whiskey, maple and a sweet slug of cherry for a devilishly double-sided buzz.
Give it a try this weekend and let us know what you think.
