Thank you to Parsonsfield and Griffo Distillery.

Parsonsfield

Parsonsfield first emerged in 2014 with Poor Old Shine, an ecstatic acoustic collection that prompted The New York Times to praise them as “boisterously youthful yet deftly sentimental” and hailed by Folk Alley as “the most jubilant and danceable indie roots music this side of the Carolinas.” The band grew more experimental on their 2016 follow- up, Blooming Through The Black, and the collection earned them both glowing reviews and dates with everyone from Josh Ritter and The Jayhawks to Mandolin Orange. That same year, the group saw their music featured in the hit AMC series “The Walking Dead” and teamed up with the prestigious FreshGrass Festival to compose a score for the 1922 silent classic Nanook of the North, which they performed live alongside the film at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art.

Four male band members make up Paronsfield, shown here. They are each lined up in a wooded area with Fall leaves behind them. They are all staring at the camera as the sun shines behind them.

Griffo Distillery

Michael and Jenny opened Griffo Distillery, to utilize Michael’s Ph.D. in physics and knack for innovation and Jenny’s desire to work locally and develop a business that was a part of the community. After two years of full-time construction, recipe testing, and brand development, they opened the doors to Griffo Distillery in April 2015.

Cocktail kit provided by Griffo that shows Gin, Club Soda, Lavender Bitters, and Honey Lemon Syrup that will be sent to you.
