Celebrate National Mushroom Day (Oct. 15th) by doubling down on fungus. AITA Black Trumpet Blueberry Cordial is made with hand-picked blueberries from the forest near our distillery in Tamworth, NH, and foraged black trumpet mushrooms from our neighbors New Hampshire Mushroom Company.
We matched our Black Trumpet Mushroom and Blueberry cordial with Highway Manor Say John Saison, since, ya know, beer is made with yeast, and yeast is a fungus just like mushrooms! The earthy sweet cordial rounds out the sour edges of the fantastic Pennsylvania-made wild ale. To try this yourself, use 1 ounce of cordial per 8 ounces of beer.
Make Room for Mushrooms

Here's another one for you create at your home bar. The Trumpeter uses layers of blueberry sweetness, juniper spice, and herbaceous lemon to adorn the earthy rich flavor and texture of the black trumpet mushroom.

- 1 oz Gin
- 1/2 oz Lemon Juice

Fill a glass with crushed ice. Shake the gin and the lemon juice together and pour it into a large glass. Then, with a clean shaker, shake the cordial and the bitters together and pour it in a layer on top of the previous one. Top the drink up with more crushed ice, garnish with a lemon peel and a sprig of lemon verbena.
