Steven Grasse, creator of Art in the Age Craft Spirits and founder of Tamworth Distilling first met Andrea Wulf through the wonderful web of social media and their shared interest in history. Andrea’s previous volumes inspired two Art in the Age spirits, (RHUBARB & SAGE) so the two agreed to meet in London for drinks. After meeting, Grasse and Wulf decided to collaborate on a new spirit, to accompany the release of her next book, based on the life and travels of Alexander Von Humboldt.
At the end of March of 1800, adventurer and naturalist Alexander von Humboldt packed his boat to the brim with tamarind fruit before departing on an expedition through the Venezuelan jungle. Humboldt had learned from the locals that the pod-like fruit of the tamarind could turn unsavory water into a refreshing “lemonade.” Inspired by Humboldt’s folk cocktail, we’ve created a unique cordial infused with fresh tamarind and citrus.
Out this Fall, in conjunction with Wulf’s critically acclaimed book, Von Humboldt’s Natur Wasser, is a Tamarind Cordial produced by Grasse’s Tamworth Distillery in New Hampshire.
