A truly great Tennessee Bourbon Whiskey with a rich palate… and Bob Dylan.
In 2018 Bob Dylan registered the trademark for "Bootleg Whiskey", setting in motion a series of events that would lead him to collaborate with Master Blender Ryan Perry and Marc Bushala. The first is an experienced Spirit-crafter who cut his teeth on new & used cask programs for various Spirits under some of the largest producers, the second the entrepreneur behind Angel's Envy Bourbon. In early 2018 they cut a deal to craft a line of Bourbons in collaboration with the famous poet, troubadour, folk-rock music hero, and Nobel Prize winner. This is how the "Heaven’s Door" line of premium Spirits came to be. And unlike many-many other so-called "celebrity brands" that are all marketing hype, it has won over 40 medals along with a bunch of other accolades — presented in stunning artistic bottles.
Heaven’s Door Tennessee Bourbon Whiskey 10 Year Old is first and foremost a real-deal Tennessee Whiskey produced using the Lincoln County Process — filtering though a column of Tennessee sugar-maple charcoal right off the stills. They are going for smoothness, so the mash bill has just a bit or rye to keep the spice at bay. And it spends a full decade agin in new oak in the hot and humid Tennessee Valley — bringing a dense and rich Bourbon on a decadent palate.
Bob Dylan’s “Knockin’ on Heaven’s Door” was used in the soundtrack of the film “Pat Garret and Billy the Kid” and released as a single in 1973. It was a world-wide top-ten hit and has been covered by dozens of bands since then.
