Tastes of Tamworth: Ep 3 – Corpse Flower

Tamworth Distilling was founded in 2015 by Steven Grasse, and it operates under a wilderness-to-bottle model. They distill their own neutral grain spirit base from local organic corn, organic rye, and malt. All of their grains are sourced from farms within a 150 mile radius, and the water comes from the Ossipee Stratified Aquifer, one of the purest sources on the East Coast. You can check them out at http://tamworthdistilling.com.

Steve Grasse is an American advertising executive, author, distillery owner and the founder of Quaker City Mercantile. In 1999, Grasse partnered with William Grant & Sons to create Hendrick’s Gin. He also helped to create Sailor Jerry Rum.


While many flowers are known for their sweet, ethereal scents, a few of the rarer flora rely on the strength of funkier pheromones to meet their match. Take the Corpse Flower, for instance, a rare beauty that comes out to play but once every few decades. Despite its devilishly delicious scent of decay, the Corpse Flower draws crowds wherever it may be found, anxiously waiting to see how this curious scent delights or defies their senses.

Tamworth Distilling explores the fine line between funky and floral, decay and bouquet with House of Tamworth Corpse Flower (http://tamworthdistilling.com/spirits/corpse-flower-durian-brandy/) – embodying a curious blend of attraction and repulsion that makes up some of the world’s most famous aphrodisiacs. In isolating and highlighting each natural pheromone, Tamworth Distilling creates a complex and utterly unique drinking experience you won’t find anywhere else. Opening the bottle to that completely unique scent, sippers will find themselves enjoying a sweet & sophisticated spirit that is nothing short of alluring.

The aroma of Corpse Flower carries warm candy apple notes up front, followed by the beguiling scent of decomposing jasmine blossoms and ripe cantaloupe. Funky fungus and decaying forest floor aromas waft from the glass, alternating with a tropical smell between pineapple and banana. The texture is lush and creamy, with a gentle bite of spirit. The flavor is slightly sweet and musky, layered delicately with the fruitiness of the apple and a note of overripe mango, as well as a pungent kick reminiscent of truffles and stinky cheese.

The durian (/ˈdjʊəriən/) is the edible fruit of several tree species belonging to the genus Durio. Some people regard the durian as having a pleasantly sweet fragrance, whereas others find the aroma overpowering and unpleasant. The smell evokes reactions from deep appreciation to intense disgust, and has been described variously as rotten onions, turpentine, and raw sewage. The persistence of its odour, which may linger for several days, led certain hotels and public transportation services in Southeast Asia to ban the fruit.
