Welcome to TALISMAN SPIRITS. “Old Plants • New Booze”
We cannot wait for the opportunity to fill your glassed with our brand new and traditional styles of alcoholic beverages! Our creations are flavored with a host of unusual plants, many locally foraged, some never experienced in liquor before! We are currently double-distilling craft beer from local breweries on a vintage copper alembic still housed at Sea Hagg in North Hampton NH.
(We will be opening Sea Hagg’s tasting room for some special release events but we have no idea when–thank you covid 19! Like us on Facebook and stay in the loop.)
We are delighted to introduce our first elixir, Monsieur Jean Vert Absinthe, for the holidays. This unusual and mysterious libation is wonderful with iced water (4 water to 1 MJV) and an other-worldly addition to the classic Sazerac, Corpse Reviver II and host of other delicious absinthe cocktails.
Also about to be bottled is a unique concoction we’ve named Evergreen Tree Spirit, which sports spruce and balsam tips as well as pine candles–that’s it. Rather than Christmas tree flavors, this spring growth imparts unusual and delicious citrus notes which are sure to inspire some wonderful mixology!
Finally triumphant after it’s protracted run through the federal gauntlet is our Wildcraft Amaro #1 which features 9 types of foraged flora from around the Seacoast area of New Hampshire and Southern Maine.
Our tasty Bitters are now being used in cutting-edge cocktails at select bars and restaurants in Portsmouth & Dover NH as well as Kittery & South Berwick ME. Ask your bartender!
