He's been an award winning singer, poet, and Nobel Laureate. Now 76-year old Bob Dylan is getting into the whiskey business.
The 18-time Grammy Award winner worked with craft distillers to create Heavens Door Spirits, named after his 1973 hit single "Knockin' on Heaven's Door."
According to the company's press release, the current line includes a Straight Tennessee Bourbon (described as a straight bourbon made from 30 percent “small grains”), a Double Barrel Whiskey (a blend made using a “double barrel finishing process”), and a Straight Rye Whiskey finished in "cigar" barrels from Vosges, France.
Dylan also announced a "Bootleg Series" of rare whiskey stocks and special blends to be released next year.
Heaven's Door Spirits will be available in select cities in six states - including Texas - by mid-May.
Heaven's Door is available nationally online for pre-orders at: www.HeavensDoor.com. Suggested retail prices range from 49.99 to 79.99 a bottle.
