  • I’m fascinated with learning about life in Boston throughout history, so I’m a frequent visitor to the Massachusetts Historical Society’s digital archives. We released a new spirit last fall called Hub Punch, which is a nod to the historic rum libation of the same name, and we actually created the recipe for our version by consulting pre-Prohibition-era advertisements for the original spirit dating from the 1800s.

  • We always keep music playing at the distillery and have been listening to a lot of Delta Spirit lately. It's easygoing background music, and a great soundtrack for sampling the new whiskeys we’ve been working on. [3 of 3]
