Bob-Dylan-Launched-a-Whiskey-Brand

We can think of few better ways to pass a lazy Sunday than with a dram of the good stuff and the needle on some classic Dylan. Now the legendary singer-songwriter is providing more than the soundtrack; he’s providing the booze. Heaven’s Door is a new distillery in Tennessee from Dylan and seasoned entrepreneur Marc Bushala. Situated inside a deconstructed church, Heaven’s Door offers a range of American whiskeys, including a a rye whiskey, double barrel whiskey, and a Tennessee bourbon, starting at $60. Dylan’s a whiskey fan, which is something easily discernible from his catalog, and he wants his expressions to tell stories, not unlike his songs. The bottles are set to ship toward the end of May and you can pre-order now through the Heaven’s Door website. Then dust off your copy of “Blood on the Tracks” and pour yourself a glass.

Pappy-Van-Winkle-Hot-Sauce

Pappy Van Winkle is the name in bourbon. Bottles have sent drinkers on wild goose chases and left others with empty bank accounts. While we can’t help you procure any of that elusive elixir, we can bring a little Pappy into your life in another way. Pappy Van Winkle Hot Sauce is aged in actual Pappy Van Winkle bourbon barrels. The distillery teamed with friends at Midland Ghost to make this flavorful hot sauce, which features the latter’s prized first generation Ghost Peppers. After the sauce was made, it was left to age in barrels that once held Pappy. That means you have a sauce that’s rich, oaky, and full of flavorful heat. Use it on meats, veggies, or, if you’re a special brand of crazy, just drink it straight from the bottle. It’s that good.
