NH Distillery Who Made Beaver Butt Bourbon Wants to Give Us the Official State Spirit
NH could soon have an official State Spirit, but not without your help, according to a story from Seacoastonline.com. "Old New Hampshire Applejack," made at Tamworth Distilling, has a petition going around asking NH Governor Chris Sununu to make the whiskey the state booze.
According to the story, we wouldn't be the first state to have a state spirit. Alabama and Virginia have state liquors too. You would think Tennessee should be on that list, but nope.
Founder of the distillery, Steven Grasse told Seacoast Online
I spent a great deal of my childhood in New Hampshire and it’s the source of some of my earliest and fondest memories. As a child, I was obsessed with New Hampshire apple cider, and at the end of a long day I’d be perched right next to my grandfather as he enjoyed his applejack whiskey. This memory became one of the driving forces in the development of Old Hampshire Applejack
They’ve recently gotten quite a bit of attention for a new spirit, Eau de Musc, a whiskey which contains beaver castoreum.
