Tamworth, New Hampshire, Distillery Releases Fish-Flavored Liqueur
Over the years, liquor shelves have expanded with a multitude of flavors to enrich all types of spirits, but this creation is nowhere in the same realm as a coconut rum or cinnamon whiskey.
Steve Grasse founded Tamworth Distilling and Mercantile, located in Tamworth, New Hampshire, about 30 mins south of North Conway back in 2015. This is not your typical distillery. According to their website, they distill their own neutral grain spirit base (rather than purchasing it from an industrial producer) from local organic corn, organic rye, and malt.
"We are taking a cue from the 19th century Transcendentalists of New England, we pull our inspiration and our ingredients from the environment that surrounds us. From start to finish, each spirit embodies our scratch made ethos: local, house-milled grain, pure White Mountain water, herbs and botanicals from the woods and our garden, and local fruits and vegetables."
They are continuing to stand by their words. The distillery that previously created a Beaver "Anus" Whiskey is now about to debut a smoked trout brandy, made with actual boba style fish eggs.
"Sweet maple and apple on the front. Caramel, raisins, and brown sugar which gently transitions into smoke, and just a hint of the trout flavor without lingering much at the end. Nice, clean finish."
Robinson then went on to say,
"I like to envision it as the scene from a traditional homestead, apple butter making in the fall next to a rushing river. Families would gather around a smoldering wood fire with a large copper pot full of apple sauce that would be slowly reduced over the course of days to a thick brown spreadable apple concentrate. I can smell the apples cooking along with whisps of wood smoke, gently mixing with the smells of the rushing mountain river next door."
