Tis the season for Christmas City Spirits and the Bethlehem based distillery has released a Pennsylvania coal region classic, Boilo. Boilo is a variation of a traditional Lithuanian liqueur called Krupnik or Krupnikas. Boilo is historically made with a neutral spirit (moonshine), but modern recipes may start with bourbon rye or other alcohol. The standard recipe includes citrus fruits, herbs, spices, honey and ginger.
Christmas City’s Coal Country Boilo is a honey and ginger flavored moonshine infused with seasonal spices. It can be served hot or cold, but this will warm your on a cold day.
Coal County Boilo is $32.95 for a 750 ml bottle. It can be picked up at The Sun Inn in Bethlehem, delivered locally (within six miles of The Sun Inn) for a three dollar fee, or shipped across Pennsylvania.
