For the Avid Angler:

Tamworth Distilling’s Saison De Frai Smoked Trout Brandy

Steven Grasse and Tamworth Distilling, the makers of famed wilderness-inspired spirits such as Eau De Musc, The Deerslayer Whiskey, and Crab Trapper, are once again pushing boundaries with bold choices of flavor: Introducing House of Tamworth Saison De Frai – Smoked Trout Flavored Brandy, launched November 17. $1 from each bottle sold benefits Trout Unlimited and their mission of keeping our country’s cold-water fisheries and their watersheds safe from environmental threats for this and future generations of anglers to enjoy — it also supports the distillery’s quest to care for, and recover, the Swift River and restore its thriving population of wild and native trout.

Each bottle of Saison De Frai (90 proof, 200 ml, $65) features a small scoop of trout roe that has been carefully preserved in apple brandy, adding an exciting element to the liquid — similar to tapioca pearls in bubble tea.
