Our latest elixir is a cosmic wonder full of blackberry, blueberry, fig, spices and blackstrap molasses. It also features the most powerful adaptogens we’ve used yet: mushrooms!

This spirit combines three bright stars of the fungi world that have been consumed for centuries thanks to their many benefits: Chaga, Reishi, and Lion’s Mane.

Chaga: From Destruction Comes Beauty

This amazing mushroom grows on damaged trees (for example, where the bark has been broken by another limb falling).

Wildcrafters, or foragers, often go hunting for these guys in areas affected by major wind storms.

Chaga has been used for centuries, popping up in ancient Chinese and Russian medicine.

Known benefits of Chaga:

  • Digestive health
  • Immune support
  • Antioxidant boosting
  • Contains vanillin, so it’s tasty too!


Reishi: “The Mushroom of Immortality”

Another key player for traditional Chinese doctors and herbalists, Reishi is a fascinating fungus. 

Also known by its Chinese name, Lingzhi, Reishi plays a mythological role in ancient Chinese literature. It’s even sometimes cited as an immortality-giving panacea.

When wildcrafting in the spring, mushroom hunters look for flashes of shiny red through the greenery. This woodland gem adds a hint of bitterness to No. 8.

Known benefits of Reishi:

  • Energy boosting
  • Immune support


Lion’s Mane: Just Look at that Hairdo!

Lion’s Mane is probably the most well-known mushroom in No. 8. It’s just as popular for its culinary uses as it is for its adaptogenic properties.

Known benefits of Lion’s Mane

  • High in thiamine, riboflavin & niacin
  • Contains essential minerals zinc & potassium
  • Fights inflammation
  • Potentially stimulates nerve & brain cell growth!

No. 8 introduces a whole new flavor of magic to the Curious Elixirs lineup. We’re so excited that our first ever booze-free spirit has the potential to boost digestive, immune, and cognitive health. All by unlocking the power of mushrooms!
