About Boston Harbor Distillery Old Fashioned
Rhonda Kallman had a quarter of a century of experience in craft beer brewing when she went looking for a fresh challenge. Missing the thrill of the early days of craft beer, she set her sights on the craft distilling industry, founding the Boston Harbor Distillery. "Ironically, the process for whiskey starts off as beer, so I’ve now come full circle. I’m excited about the future for craft distilled spirits and we are making some of the best in the business," says Kallman.
Situated at The Port on Boston Harbor, the distillery operates from a former mill building, which was built in 1859. After hiring Dr. James Swan, a renowned whiskey-making expert, and convincing the award-winning distiller John Couchot to move to Boston and join their ranks, the operation was ready to go.
Today the distillery houses hundreds of barrels of whiskeys of all sorts, as well as rum, liqueurs, and other spirits. Their range includes Putnam Whiskey, Lawley's Small Batch Rum, Spirit of Boston (expressions, distilled from various different Samuel Adams beers), and Boston Harbor Cream and Coffee Liqueurs.
The Old Fashioned is a ready-to-drink craft cocktail that is crafted with the rich and spicy Putnam New England Rye Whiskey, Angostura Bitters, and demerara sugar. Each bottle of this 70-proof cocktail contains 10 servings ― 10 perfect drinks without the hassle of mixing. All you need to do after a hard day is add a couple ice cubes.

The history of cocktails dates back to the not-so-good days of prohibition when people started to mix drinks trying to make the homemade or bootlegged liquor drinkable.
But things have changed since then, and cocktails have become increasingly popular with modern pop culture, from classics like Martini, Old Fashioned, or Negroni, to the more festive versions like Margaritas and Mojitos becoming staples in most bars.
