In case you haven’t figured it out by now, we’ll try just about any kind of beverage if the packaging is pretty enough. We’re like puppy dogs in the park chasing squirrels, but with drinks, though you’ll never catch us chasing after furry creatures, because we don’t run. But we do saddle up to the bar!
On today’s episode of A Tasting at The Murder Table, we’re pouring, mixing and sampling a non-alcoholic elixir that comes in a beautifully packaged square bottle. This elixir is called The Pathfinder and it arrived on our doorstep thanks to the fine folks at Punch Media PR.
Here’s what they had to say about this beautifully packaged libation in a recent press release:
The Pathfinder is steeped in the rich history of the American West with a liquid that is just as wild as the landscape and the people that inhabited it. Inspired by the age of apothecaries and the homemade remedies often employed by pioneers’ homesteaders and snake oil salesmen alike, Hemp and Root equally hearkens to a bygone age as it raises the standard of flavor and quality in non-alcoholic spirits with an eye to the future.
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.
With a botanical make up similar to gin but more akin to amaro, The Pathfinder performs like just like liquor in cocktails but also allows imbibers to lower the proof of classic and nouveau cocktails alike without diluting or compromising any of their favorite, complex flavors. With The Pathfinder, at-home mixologists can whip up a savory Old Fashioned, Manhattan, and many more classic cocktails.
This all sounds incredibly delicious! As is usually the case whenever we try something made for mixing, first we try it on its own, then we try it in a suggested cocktail. To find out what we thought of this intriguing beverage, click play on the following video:
