Black Trumpet Blueberry Cordial
Here in New Hampshire, black trumpet mushrooms and wild blueberries are harvested at the same time, so we used both to create our latest cordial concoction: Black Trumpet Blueberry Cordial. A unique blend of the season’s best sweet and savory flavors, our Black Trumpet Blueberry Cordial is made with hand-picked blueberries from the forest near our distillery, and foraged black trumpet mushrooms from our neighbors at New Hampshire Mushroom Company.
Mushrooms are an unexpected choice — this is the only spirit we know of that uses them — but the rich, fruity, smoky flavor of the black trumpet provides a perfect counterbalance to the sweet, tart blueberries. Lavender and lemon verbena straight from our garden add light herbal notes and reinforce the fresh flavors, creating a rare cordial that brings to mind a prize-winning blueberry pie.
