During the tour, alumni learned about the process of making craft whiskey, vodka and rum. Cocktails made from Bully Boy's craft vodka, cranberry juice and lemon were served during the tour. Tour goers were given an up-close look at the aging process for rum, which Bully Boy produces in a fashion similar to the rum historically produced in Boston, dating back to the 17th century. The distillery's small batch process also offers unique advantages, including a more refined end product, with less of the toxic by-products of distillation remaining in the finished spirit than would be the case for a larger-scale organization that needs to produce more volume more quickly.
The tour concluded with a tasting of each of Bully Boy's five spirits, and alumni were able to purchase products to take home. As a poster hung in the factory read, you can't root for New England with whiskey from Tennessee!
