Alice In Chains unveils new bourbon collaboration
Alice In Chains has just announced a bourbon collaboration called “All Secrets Known,” and the main secret is that it’s finished in tequila barrels. The spirit is a collaboration between the band, Few Spirits and Warner Music Artist Services. It’s named after the opening song on Alice in Chains’ 2009 album Black Gives Way To Blue.
The 101 proof bourbon is finished for six months in tequila barrels to give it a spicy kick. Distiller Paul Hletko explained, “Nobody sounds like Alice in Chains. We were inspired by their courage to create a sound that flouted convention and thought, ‘There are lots of tequilas finished in bourbon barrels, but it’s rare to find a widely available bourbon finished in tequila barrels. Let’s do that instead.'”
A bottle of the bourbon runs for $75. The limited-edition spirit will be available in liquor stores in California, Colorado, Illinois, New York and Washington, and can also be purchased online through ReserveBar.com.
Alice In Chains has been winding down the touring cycle behind its latest album, Rainier Fog.
