Alice in Chains Announce New Bourbon Collaboration ‘All Secrets Known’
Have you ever had bourbon with a hint of tequila? Alice in Chains have just announced a bourbon collaboration called "All Secrets Known," and it's finished in tequila barrels.
The spirit is a collaboration between the band, Few Spirits and Warner Music Artist Services. "All Secrets Known" is the opening song off Alice in Chains' first album with frontman William DuVall, 2009's Black Gives Way to Blue. The 101 proof bourbon is finished for six months in tequila barrels to give it a bit of a spicy kick.
"There are no two spirits that have a closer association with rock and roll than whiskey and tequila," explains Few Spirits distiller Paul Hletko. "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."
"Nobody sounds like Alice in Chains," he adds. "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.'"
The bottle's label was designed by Justin Helton, a self-proclaimed longtime fan of AIC. "For this design, I found inspiration in the name 'All Secrets Known.' The eye in the mouth is a play on seeing all that's been spoken," the artist describes of the design. See the label below.
A 750mL 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.
