Every winter in the Coal Region of Pennsylvania, families gather to make their closely guarded Boilo (Pronounced Boil-o) recipe. Created by Lithuanian and Polish immigrants replicating honey liquors known as krupnikas from the homeland, each recipe is unique, passed generation to generation. They all share the same base combination of oranges, lemon, honey, aromatic spices, and moonshine or whiskey. These ingredients are slowly mulled in a big pot or a crockpot to allow the aroma and flavors to blend.
Many say that this brew has curative effects, but we can all agree that it fills the house with an amazing aroma and makes the coldest days warm.
My favorite day of the year is Boilo day. The amazing aroma fills the house and you know that Christmas and the new year are near. This was my motivation to create the Boilo candle and make Boilo day possible every day.
