“The keeping of bees is like the direction of sunshine.” – Thoreau

The story of Tamworth began with the story of hard work in a hard land, the relationship between the people and the soil. Our Apiary Gin celebrates the efforts of the most industrious workers around us: our local bees. Distilled with juniper berries, hand-foraged Poplar buds, Red Clover flower, and of course, 100% New England raw honey, Apiary Gin’s forest pine flavors are mellowed by the delicious fruits of our little buzzing friends labor. Another reason why we work with the land, not against it.

Unlike wines, spirits don’t change in the bottle. They are time capsules, perfect pictures of the time and place they were created.

For our first line of spirits from our new Art in the Age Test Kitchen, we looked to the New England landscape around us to find our inspirations, and the seasonal ingredients of the autumn of 2014 were what informed our creations. Autumn in New Hampshire is a time of both subtle contemplation and intense inspiration. These Garden Infusions reflect that time in every bottle and in every glass.

Sweet potatoes infused with clove, maple syrup, and a touch of salt make this first batch the quintessence of autumn in a glass. Enjoy it after a hearty dinner, or before a long hike in the woods.

Once used as a coffee substitute, roasted chicory is the rich, dark basis of this earthy spirit. From there we tease out some bite with hand-harvested dandelion, spice with American rye, and warmth with cinnamon and maple syrup. At once both dark and inviting, our Chicory Vodka is a mystery you can solve.

Our beet vodka is a tribute to the fruits of the fall. We’ve blended sweet beets, tart New Hampshire cranberries, and cidery apple pomace, and added honey, salt, and tarragon to tie it all together. In the glass it is a striking punch which glows with a beautiful magenta color when held to the light. A perfect way to enjoy final fruits of the season today, tomorrow, and forever.
