The Reef on Howard Wharf welcomed a Boston Harbor Distillery pop-up tasting event as part of Newport Winter Festival 2020. The Dorchester, MA-based distillery’s spirits lines include Putnam New England Single Malt, Putnam New England Rye Whiskey, Boston Harbor Liqueurs in Maple Cream and Coffee, Lawley’s Small Batch Rum and Spirit of Boston, its award-winning expressions distilled from Samuel Adams beer varieties. Founded by Rhonda Kallman after a 25-year career in the U.S. craft beer movement as a pioneering co-founder of Samuel Adams Beer Co., Kallman opened Boston Harbor Distillery in 2015. Its products take inspiration from the regional history of the 1855 building that the company is based in overlooking Boston Harbor.
