Local Whiskey + Chocolate? It's a match made in heaven! Satisfy all your wildest cravings and share a sweet moment with friends, family or a significant other making chocolate side-by-side, plus taste + learn about craft whiskey made from scratch in Roxbury, Mass.

This hands-on workshop has three delicious parts:

  • First, our Taza chocolate expert will teach you how to make dark chocolate ganache from scratch using the highest-quality stone-ground chocolate and farm-fresh Appleton Farms cream, with the addition of the perfect amount of Bully Boy Whiskey for that extra punch of flavor. You'll work in teams to create a pot of hot ganache and dip bread and cheese into this delicious treat (it's like fondue).
  • Then, Taza will join forces with the experts at the Bully Boy Distillers to lead the group through a whiskey and chocolate tasting & pairing class with three different whiskies and three different chocolates. You'll taste all the most popular Taza chocolate flavors of all intensity levels paired expertly with Bully Boy Whiskies.
  • And last, you'll roll decadent dark chocolate truffles by hand; made with chilled dark Taza ganache + Bully Boy Whiskey. You will dip your dozen truffles into three-four different toppings (see below) and take them home in a box - to either share or horde.

About Taza Chocolate

At Taza Chocolate we make stone ground, organic chocolate. Cacao is so complex in flavor that we want to let it shout loud and proud. That is why we do less to bring you more. We stone grind cacao beans into perfectly unrefined, minimally processed chocolate with bold flavor and texture, unlike anything you have ever tasted. 

At the Taza Chocolate Bar, located in the Boston Public Market, visitors can watch as cacao is ground on-site in stone mills to craft fresh hot and iced chocolate drinks. Taza’s full product line is also available for purchase. In addition to our Direct Trade Cacao Certification, Taza is Certified USDA Organic, Non-GMO Project Verified, Certified Gluten Free, and OU Kosher Pareve. Taza Chocolate is also dairy free, soy free and vegan.

About Bully Boy Distillers

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.
