I was at a recent gathering of friends and one guy had a bottle of homemade spiced honey liquor called Viryta. It was delicious! It is popular with Lithuanians in the Baltimore area. In researching it I found out there is a version called Boilo that apparently originates in the Schuylkill County area of PA. Anyone familiar with it and have a recipe to share?

I think there was a topic on boilo a few years ago. A Google search should find a couple recipes, that's where I got mine. :D

Try some Drambuie some time :yes:
Available at the liquor store, a little pricey.

Coalkirk, I saw a recipe for viryta on line. The biggest difference I noticed is the alcohol content in the online recipe for viryta was much higher than most people's boilo recipe.

Thanks! I am going to make a batch. The stuff I had started with Ever Clear which I believe is 190 proof!
