Fire Puncher Vodka hits first with a crisp, bell pepper sweetness and follows up with a smooth, smoky heat. Heaps of locally grown chipotle peppers are added to the final distillation, which allows us to extract the whole range of chile flavors along with the spice. Hickory smoke is bubbled through the spirit just before bottling, making each sip rich with hardwood smokiness. Whether blended with citrus or used to create stellar savory drinks, this punchy spirit adds depth and heat to any drink from brunch to dessert. Made in South Boston and handcrafted in copper, Fire Puncher Vodka is anything but ordinary.
The Legend of Tommy Maguire
On a cold night in January 1887, flames erupted from the iron foundry on Dorchester Avenue in South Boston, spewing smoke over the South Bay. Before the firemen could get to the blaze, Tommy Maguire raised a ladder and climbed to the roof where he “undertook to fight the flames with his fists.” The fire eventually subsided but the legend of Tommy Maguire lives on.
