Back up: Tell us a little about this place.
In recent years, this Roxbury distillery has built up a cult following for its smooth whiskey, gin, rum, and vodka. Since opening an intimate, cozy 26-seat tasting room in 2017, it has also become one of the best craft-cocktail spots in the city. Where else can you sip a beautifully made drink while gazing upon the copper vats where the spirit was made?
So, who else are we likely to spot getting their drink on?
This isn't a party spot for large groups; rather, this is where serious spirits aficionados come to sip on painstakingly poured cocktails.
Speaking of which, how are those drinks?
Drinks, however creative they may be here, allow the spirits to shine. Try the Smoking Monk, an intriguing mix of gin, house-made chartreuse, lime juice, and wormwood bitters, or the Barron Spreckle, made with fig and vanilla bean–infused whiskey, house-hopped Amaro, Angostura bitters, and black walnut bitters. If you're having a hard time choosing, go for a flight like the "Boston Tea Party," a series of tea-infused cocktails.
We're always up for something different, and those sound delish. How about the service—satisfactory, good, awful?
This staff knows Bully Boy's spirits well and will even mix up something off-menu.
Nice. So, at the end of the day, why should we pull up a chair here?
Come to appreciate the fine tunings of a local distillery—for only $10 apiece, a bargain when it comes to Boston craft cocktails.
