Batavia arrack - where to buy in Boston????

GreyFloors | Dec 20, 201503:09 PM     7

Thinking of doing a Sons of Liberty punch for Christmas and the recipe calls for Batavia arrack. Any idea where to source in Boston folks?

Here is the recipe btw (created (I think) by the folks at Drink):

Sons of Liberty Punch
John Gersten, Drink, Boston
(Serves 10)

3 tsp. black tea
8 oz. hot water
4 lemons, zested
1/2 cup demerara sugar
4 oz. Batavia arrack
8 oz. Matusalem Clasico
8 oz. cognac
6 oz. lemon juice
1 block of ice or ice ring
Nutmeg, for garnish

Steep the tea in the hot water. While the tea is steeping, muddle the lemon zest and sugar in a punchbowl. Add the Batavia arrack and carefully ignite the liquid with a long wooden match. Strain the tea into the punchbowl to extinguish the flame. Add the Matusalem Clasico, cognac, and lemon juice to bowl, along with the ice. Allow the punch to steep for 10 to 15 minutes. Garnish each serving with freshly grated nutmeg.
