ALICE IN CHAINS has announced a new, limited-release bourbon distilled by Few Spirits master distiller Paul Hletko.
All Secrets Known (SRP: $75/750 ml), a nod to the name of the opening track of ALICE IN CHAINS‘ 2009 gold-certified release “Black Gives Way To Blue”, is Few bourbon finished for six months in tequila barrels and bottled at the most rock and roll of proofs, 101 (50.5% ABV). Bold, sweet, and spicy bourbon top notes that have become the hallmark of Few and led to multiple category awards, are accentuated by grassy agave undertones.
“There are no two spirits that have a closer association with rock and roll than whiskey and tequila,” comments Pletko. Bringing together elements of both, but in an unconventional, innovative way, is an illustration of what we try to do every time we distill a new product.
“ALICE IN CHAINS is part of one of very few movements that can be legitimately credited with shapeshifting an entire culture, beginning with their first album, ‘Facelift,’” he continued. “For us distilling, like making music, is about having the courage to ask, ‘What if we…’ and being excited to find the answers — unlocking those secrets.
“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.'”
EVP of Warner Music Artist Services, Matt Young said:: “Our team always seeks out the best in the business when it comes to our artist product collaborations. Few Spirits was a no-brainer when the idea first came up to create an ALICE IN CHAINS bourbon whiskey.”
