Boilo is the high-octane Yuletide drink that has been served hot in the coal regions of Pennsylvania for over a hundred years. Warm up a shot and sip it slowly. The citrus & spices swirled together with moonshine will warm the cockles of your heart. This was designed as a self-promotion holiday gift.
Near the end of the Boilo making process, the hand-written, century-old recipe says: "CAUTION, at this point in the recipe, the boilo might explode!" I loved the thought of old coal miners risking life and limb in the mines, and then coming into the light just to risk it all again for the sake of a drink. I wanted the design to feel old fashioned and little folksy.
