Drink your Thanksgiving dinner

Art in the Age founder Steven Grasse, along with Tamworth Distilling, are once again pushing boundaries with bold choices of flavor and historically-influenced local ingredients. Available for pre-sale and just in time for the 400th anniversary of the first Thanksgiving, Bird of Courage, a roasted turkey flavored whiskey, will join The House of Tamworth lineup of rare and evocative limited-release spirits. This brand-new, tryptophan-free whiskey was birthed from a barrel of 5-year-old Bottled in Bond Whiskey (12% rye, 81% corn, 7% malt) and was steeped with a (mostly) historically accurate and quintessential New England Thanksgiving dinner.
