Bully Boy Distillery

10 a.m. isn't the usual time to visit Boston's only craft distillery much less sip vodka, white bourbon, and white rum.

Bully Boy is the brainchild of two brothers, Will and Dave Willis.  The pair use traditional techniques to produce small batch spirits emphasizing quality over quantity and local ingredients over whatever is available.


A small group of Boston University gastronomy graduate students toured the distillery hoping to get an inside peek at the inner workings of Bully Boy's operations.  Every step of the spirit making process is performed by hand.  The 600 liter copper pot still is the workhorse of the facility allowing the brothers to focus complex flavors, aromas, and mouth-feel into their spirits. 

This impressive business has bottles featured in some of Boston's top cocktail menus.  For more details, click here.
