Rachel and I recently visited Charlie and Oliver over at Bully Boy Distillery to get a fun history lesson on their new Hub Punch (you can read Rachel's full writeup here). Here are some images from the visit...
Tools atop a barrel awaiting spirits in their stock room.
Charlie explains their process amidst lots of barrels of delicious spirit.
Here's the recipe tasting and experimenting bench—where both science and magic happen. All of those different bottles on the shelf are mixes and experiments for forthcoming spirits.
We got an in-depth tour of the still operations—boy did it smell sweet.

Look at all of those awards.
Hub punch and swag—check out those hand-lacquered coasters.
They had some really excellent posters... a few of my favorites:
“Every bottle gets a personal touch from Will or Dave. (It’s less creepy than it sounds)”
"You can't root for New England with whiskey from Tennessee."
Excellent marketing, excellent drinks, excellent company.
Thanks again guys. We'll be back.
