Most reading this know that I love funky products. We've done our fair share of experimental barrels at Seelbach's. Tamworth Distilling pushes the envelope even further! Have you ever tried Venison-infused whiskey (Don't worry. We have more coming in December)? What about whiskey flavored with oil extract from the castor gland of the North American beaver? Anyone?! But, the distillery in New Hamshire is more than quirky products. They have a Bottled-In-Bond bourbon that is fantastic. Their 100% Rye Whiskey is traditional in its flavor notes. However, Tamworth only uses local, house-milled grain.
Our story is as old as America itself, planting our flag in the heart of a historic New Hampshire village. We’ve set up our distillery in accordance to the land around us, not against it. What we take, we give back. And what we have, we give to you. 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.
Our 250 gallon copper still was custom built by Vendome in Kentucky, and outfitted with a brandy helmet, whiskey column, gin basket, and rectifying column. These components give us the versatility to produce a variety of different products, and change batches with the seasons.
Unlike many producers of craft spirits, we distill our own neutral grain spirit base (rather than purchasing it from an industrial producer) from local organic corn, organic rye, and malt. All of our grains are sourced from farms within a ~150 mile radius during the harvest season, and milled in-house, on demand, for the freshest flavor.
Tamworth’s water comes from the Ossipee Stratified Aquifer, one of the purest sources on the East Coast. More importantly, it lies on granite bedrock — you cannot frack in granite, so this pure source is safe from that type of industrial pollution.
