Pesky green crabs are used to create NH whiskey

By far the most creative distillery I have ever seen is in our backyard in Tamworth, New Hampshire.

The Tamworth Distillery receives excellent reviews from its customers as it strives to be the best small batch distillery in New England. That works. This 603 distillery invents all kinds of crazy batches of whiskey, gin, lemonade, bourbon, corn whiskey, rye, vodka and other spirits.

Dedicated to eco-friendly distillation, the Tamworth Distillery will have perhaps its most inventive creation available this summer, according to an Instagram post. The limited edition Crab Trapper Green Crab Flavored Whiskey debuts this summer, and they’re taking orders now at tamworthdistilling.com.

What does it taste like? Well, they boil the invasive green crab, which is harvested after molting, and cook it in crab broth. Cilantro, cloves, cinnamon and allspice give it a “brickly fireball” taste, according to Distillery on Instagram. The post also states that it sources its green crab from fisherman Dwight Souther of Seabrook, NH, so it’s a genuine Granite State business.

Think about it. We have an invasive species that is too abundant, so why would we use these creatures since they are so prevalent? It’s just a solution to a problem that scientists think about all the time, from this youtube video.

Crab Trapper whiskey isn’t Tamworth Distillery’s only creative product. Try some of their other spirits like Apiary Gin (made with bee honey), Habanero Cocktail Spice (try it in a Margarita), White Mountain Lemonade Vodka or the Old Man In The Mountain Bourbon Whiskey, a toast to the history of the Granite State, stone-face and all.

So the next time you want to find something different, check out this innovative distillery that is putting Tamworth, NH in the national spotlight.

Cheers!
