The hottest spirit of 2022 just happens to be non-alcoholic. The Pathfinder Hemp and Root, the brand-new zero-proof elixir made from fermented and distilled hemp serving up spirit-lifting cocktails with all of the botanical flavor and none of the booze, hits shelves this month in Philadelphia – exclusively at Art in the Age, Old City’s premier bar and tasting room, expansive home bar supply and bottle shop.
To celebrate the Philly launch of this scintillating elixir, the first of its kind, Art in the Age will host two immersive cocktail workshops featuring The Pathfinder : The Pathfinder “Dry January” Mocktail Workshop, on Tuesday, January 18 at 7pm, and The Pathfinder Cocktail Workshop on Tuesday, January 25, at 7 pm.
Inspired by the golden age of cannabis and already flourishing in Seattle’s top cocktail bars and coffee shops, The Pathfinder Hemp and Root raises the standard of flavor and quality in non-alcoholic spirits with an eye to changing the future of socialization – not just during Dry January. In drinks, The Pathfinder behaves like a spirit and can be served in coffee, sipped neat, served on the rocks, or used as the base of a cocktail. In other words, it fits right into the back bar of your favorite bar or cafe as well as it does your home bar cart.
“While it’s delicious in a mocktail, in coffee, or even over ice cream, The Pathfinder is not only for people refraining from alcohol,” said spirits maverick, Co-Founder of The Pathfinder Hemp and Root, and Founder of Art in the Age, Steven Grasse. “The spirit actively elevates the flavor profile any (alcoholic) cocktail it’s added to, with its complex palette of botanical ingredients.”
In celebration of the launch of The Pathfinder, the team of expert mixologists Art in the Age will host two immersive cocktail workshops highlighting the badass new spirit. See all details below:
