Tamworth is not its founder and owner Steven Grasse's first foray into the spirits business. A former ad man for MTV and R.J. Reynolds Tobacco Company, he conceived Hendrick's Gin and founded Sailor Jerry Rum.

...
"Art in the Age was working out pretty well, so it got me reading more about the Transcendalists," says Grasse. "And it was like Walter Benjamin on crack."
The decision to buy property in New Hampshire was a personal one: his mother's family has called it home since 1630. Before opening the distillery, Grasse purchased the former Tamworth Village Store, a local grocery dating back to Thoreau's time, and reinvented it as a cafe and concert venue called the Tamworth Lyceum. (It wasn't deemed fit for a distillery.) In 2011, Grasse earned enough local support to build his distillery just up the road - on the grounds of the former Tamworth Inn, which will reopen as a restaurant with housing for visiting chefs next year.

Thank you, Steve Grasse, for this gift to the town of Tamworth.

Steve also said that he is not interested in attracting tourists, will sell these products elsewhere. This location will be more of a lab, and if any item gets popular enough to warrant production on a larger scale, that will take place somewhere else. He said the distillery might employ 5-6 people at first, and that Jamie is learning the trade and will head up the distilling operation. (Go Jamie!)
...
I, too, am grateful for Steve Grasse's thoughtful plans for such a vital piece of The Village.
...
Thanks to Mr. Grasse, we're lucky to have this outcome.
