Bully Boy Distillers is Boston's first ever craft-distillery founded in 2010 by brothers Will & Dave Willis. Located in Boston's Newmarket District, Bully Boy produces a wide variety of spirits including vodka, gin, whiskies, and rums. Visitors to the distillery can take tours of their state of the art facility and enjoy cocktails made in the Tasting Room bar, voted Best of Boston in 2017, which overlooks the production facility.
The class will be led by Bully Boy bar maven Alex Koblan for a night of locally-inspired cocktails. Alex has been a brand ambassador for Bully Boy for over 2 years and recently took on a full time position running the distillery Tasting Room, events program, and social media/marketing. Her first foray into the beverage industry was with beer which developed into a passion for spirits and all things Bully Boy. Swing by the Tasting Room most nights to catch her in action.
