AITA 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.
