A Rare Bourbon Finished in Tequila Barrels

With An Assist from Alice in Chains

By Hadley Tomicki ·

This is not another story about tequila aged in bourbon barrels.

That would be way too predictable.

No, this is a story about bourbon aged in tequila barrels.

That’s called a twist.

More specifically, it’s called All Secrets Known, a different breed of bourbon made by Few Spirits in collaboration with legendary Seattle grunge band Alice in Chains, now available for pre-order through Reserve Bar and due in stores soon.

Whether you still throw on the Dirt LP or not doesn’t matter here. Because the guys behind the band have bestowed an innovative new dram upon the planet: a bourbon finished for six months in tequila barrels. 

It weighs in at 101 proof. Or to put it in rock n’ roll terms, strong enough to make someone want to throw a TV set out of a Hilton. And speaking of rock, the hand-rendered label was designed by a guy that has made famous posters for The Black Keys, Grateful Dead and My Morning Jacket.

The one conceivable downside is that only 900 bottles are being released.

Hardly enough to fuel your next world tour.
