Whiskey made green crabs
Another of the launches in alcoholic beverages with exotic flavors is a whiskey made from green crabs.
The newly launched drink was made by Tamworth Distilling and a team from the University of New Hampshire created a whiskey using invasive crabs that are destroying New England’s shellfish fishery and ecosystem.
To make the whisky, the developers boiled green crabs in a crab broth which was then fortified with Tamworth-made neutral grain spirits and distilled in a large vacuum rotary still “until the ideal crab essence was achieved.” the company says.
The whiskey is available for sale in 200-milliliter bottles priced at $65. It is available at Tamworth Distillery (shop.tamworthdistilling.com) and other stores such as Seelbachs.com and Philadelphia’s Art in the Age.
