The Sober Curator Raves about The Pathfinder

The Pathfinder is a fermented and distilled hemp-based liquid with the intense flavor and aromatic characteristics of a spirit, with none of the harmful effects of alcoholic beverages. This may just become your new favorite NA spirits alternative. This brand claims to be the destroyer of bad times, and I think they’re onto something. Plus, their branding taps my curiosity and makes me want to know more.

What’s the fermentation process like?

The base liquid is concocted of fermentation of he,p in a powerful elixir so astonishing that they have to keep its formulation a well-guarded secret. It’s the critical part of an age-old process that yields a robust and inimitable character unlike anything else in modern times.

What’s the distillation process like?

They utilize the craft of distillation by boiling their secretive he,p fermentation in 16th-century style copper pot stills, collecting, condensing, and reliquefying the vapor yielding in a flabbergasting purification and concentration of spirits and the beneficial essences they carry.

The Alchemy

Finally, the condensed liquid undergoes a marvelous transfiguration of form and function by the artful blending and slow maturation with their distinctive botanicals. This harmonious marriage of distillates, extracts, tinctures, and oils constitutes a unification of craftmanship unrivaled by even the most respectable pretenders.

Hemp & Root

THE PATHFINDER Hemp & Root is a fermented and distilled liquid with the intense flavor and aromatic characteristics of a spirit, with none of the harmful effects of alcoholic beverages. In drinks, they recommend Hemp & Root in their signature spritz recipe, but it can also be taken as a shot, sipped neat, served on the rocks, or used to modify a multitude of classic cocktails. In other words, it fits right into the back bar of your favorite cocktail destination as well as it does your home bar cart.

In fact, it’s SO special, it’s currently limited to one bottle per order. Is your curiosity peaked?

Sober Curator Pro Tip: This funky new brand is based in the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

This is my new favorite go-to NA beverage. I enjoy crafting one of their alcohol-free recipes at the end of a long day, as I kick up my feet to Netflix & chill. It feels like a special treat, and the bonus is no unwanted side effects. Without a doubt I will purchase this brand to gift at friends’ parties and gatherings, inviting even the “normal” drinkers in my life to sample this delicious alternative.

What does it taste like?

Heaven in liquid form? Ok, not really, but close. This miraculous elixir, like the hemp plant itself, has no psychoactive effects, yet contains enough vitamin E, antioxidants, and other nutrients, to go favorably hand-in-hand with a balanced diet. And since there’s no alcohol in The Pathfinder, it won’t give you a hangover, either.
