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.

Legend has it that Saint Dunstan was visited by the devil when he needed new shoes. The metalsmith tricked the devil by nailing a horseshoe to his cloven hoof. They ended up striking an agreement: Dunstan would remove the hoof if the devil agreed to never enter a door with a horseshoe hung above it. This is said to be the origin of lucky horseshoes and with one such lucky charm hanging above the front doors of the distillery, this expression doesn't hide its inspiration.

Boston Harbor Demon Seed Whiskey sits squarely amidst the distillery's more experimental releases. This hellish expression brings the heat ― the chili pepper kind. It's crafted with Trinidad Moruga scorpion peppers, which at one time held the record as the hottest chili in the world. Whole peppers are macerated in their rye whiskey before ginger and Vermont maple syrup are added for an additional kick and a layer of sweetness. At 66.7 proof it just about hits the mark as well!
