Categories: , Tags: , , ,


Our unique expression of a spicy, yet elegant Rye whiskey. Aged harbor side in heavily charred new American oak 53-gallon barrels, this Rye has a distinct Boston accent. Inspired by the terroir and regionality of New England, it’s spicy smoothness stands up perfectly in any whiskey-forward cocktail or on it’s own.

On the Nose: Burnt caramel, allspice & baked raspberry
On the Tongue: Raspberry & black cherry jam, ginger & anisette
On the Finish: Moderate taste.
Full on the tongue. Lingering notes of chocolate & caramel.
Smooth & powerful

Boston Harbor Distillery was founded by Rhonda Kallman, who after a 25-year career at the forefront of the U.S. craft beer movement, looked for her next challenge. She found it in the craft distilling industry as it reminded her of the early days of the craft beer movement.

After searching for nearly two years for a suitable location, we found it at The Port on Boston Harbor on Boston’s southernmost waterfront in the Neponset section of Dorchester. Built in 1859 with Douglas Fir post and beam construction, 40 foot high ceilings and over 100 windows, today it is one of the last remaining mill buildings in the Boston area. Run down and neglected, it took over a year to renovate and bring it to life. It’s now the proud home of the Boston Harbor Distillery.
