To create Crab Trapper Whiskey, we teamed up with the University of New Hampshire to find a use for our state’s invasive green crab population, which wreaks havoc on our coastal ecosystem. This invasive species, previously kept in check by the winter freeze, has been recently thriving due to climate change.

We wanted to do our part in protecting our local shellfish by controlling the green crab population in the only way we know how— a deliciously weird spirit. Crab Trapper has a bourbon base steeped with a crab, corn and low-country boil blend mixture.

What Does Green Crab Whiskey Taste Like?

Crab Trapper is made with a bourbon base steeped with a custom crab, corn and spice blend mixture, best likened to a Low Country Boil. The crab is present lightly on the nose, accompanied by coriander and bay to smooth out any high notes. The body carries hints of the maple and vanilla oak notes lent from the full-bodied base. The spirit finishes with heavier notes of clove, cinnamon, and allspice, leaving a light, pleasant spice on the palate.

The White Mountains have long been a source of inspiration, drawing artists, poets, hikers, and explorers to its picturesque, rugged peaks. Here at Tamworth Distilling we found inspiration in this landscape we call home, and the crisp, clean, pure water preserved by the region’s granite bedrock. White Mountain Vodka is a beautiful expression of our #ScratchMade philosophy: all local grains, milled, distilled, and bottled right here in Tamworth. Its mash bill is a blend of corn, rye, and malt for a uniquely smooth, sweet flavor profile, which is proofed down after distillation with water from the Ossippee Aquifer.

Our love for Mother Earth goes beyond our spirits as well, deeply ingrained into our ethos to use the planet around us in ways that are never intrusive, and never wasteful. One of our favorite ways to celebrate Earth Day is with a cocktail that reflects this ethos.

Waste Conscious Directions:

3. Pick mint leaves from stems
4. Steep the leftover mint stems in the simple syrup to use in the cocktail, start by combining equal parts sugar and water over medium heat until dissolved and then add in mint leaves for flavor
