Bully Boy Amaro - Boston, MA
Bully Boy Distiller's Amaro is a riff on the classic bitter liqueur. It took us two years and hundreds of batches to arrive at the recipe. They've settled on a combination of over twenty-six different botanicals, all of which contribute to the patchwork of flavor and aroma. The bitter backbone comes from a combination of hops, including Amarillo, Cascade, Citra, and Galaxy. It's complimented by a pop of grapefruit, and its rounded out by earthy and floral notes, including yarrow, rhubarb root, and fig. There is just enough sweetness to make it all work, and at 58 proof it's soft enough to sip neat but robust enough to use in cocktails.
Founded in 2010 by brothers Will and Dave Willis, Bully Boy Distillers is located in the heart of Boston. In addition to their Amaro, they also produce Whiskey, Gin, Rum and Vodka.
