Heaven's Door Spirits, the award-winning collection of American whiskeys founded by Bob Dylan, launches "Homesick Blues" Minnesota Wheated Bourbon. This limited release offering pays homage to Dylan's birthplace of Duluth, Minn., and commemorates the debut of the definitive Dylan biography, Bob Dylan: Mixing Up The Medicine.
This cask-strength wheated bourbon has been aged for seven years in the extreme temperature fluctuations of Minnesota's North Country, imparting distinctive flavors of honey, caramel, dried fruit, vanilla and nutmeg, all culminating in a long, mellow finish.
Marc Bushala, co-founder/CEO of Heaven's Door Spirits, called Homesick Blues "a heartfelt tribute to Bob Dylan's Minnesota roots and his journey to find home. This unique limited release expression stays true to Dylan's desire to create a collection of whiskeys which each tell their own story."
"Bob Dylan: Mixing Up the Medicine is the landmark tome that Bob Dylan fans have been waiting decades for. Spanning the life and career of the Nobel prize–winning musician, artist, and writer, this magnum opus provides unprecedented access to the hidden treasures found within the Bob Dylan Archive," said Mark Davidson, Senior Director of Archives and Exhibitions at the Bob Dylan Center.
A limited-edition bundle featuring the book and bottle, complete with a custom box with a copy of Bob Dylan's original handwritten lyrics to Knockin' On Heaven's Door, is now available for pre-order. The book and the bottle can also be purchased separately through HeavensDoor.com, with delivery timed for the official release of the book on October 24th.
