FEW Spirits and Alice In Chains announce the reissue of All Secrets Known Bourbon, a limited-release expression distilled by FEW Spirits Master Distiller Paul Hletko in collaboration with the Seattle Grunge pioneers. Bottles feature a custom-designed label by artist Justin Helton.
All Secrets Known (SRP: $60/750 ml) refers to the title of track one on Alice In Chains’ fourth studio album, Black Gives Way To Blue, which has sold more than 1 million copies worldwide.
For this special whiskey release, FEW Bourbon is finished for six months in tequila barrels and bottled at the most rock and roll of proofs, 101 (50.5% ABV). Grassy agave undertones accentuate bold, sweet, and spicy bourbon top notes.
Said Heltko, back in 2019, upon the original release of the whiskey, “Alice In Chains is part of one of the very few movements that can be legitimately credited with shapeshifting an entire culture, beginning with their first album, Facelift.”
Continues Hletko, “Today, it gives me great pleasure to once again bring this whiskey to music fans everywhere and to continue to merge these great passions of mine – distilling and music – with legends like Alice in Chains. Pour a glass of All Secrets Known, turn on your favorite track, and enjoy the experience.”
The Label Design was created by artist Justin Helton of Status Serigraph, who is no stranger to working with musical giants like Phish, The Avett Brothers, My Morning Jacket, Ween, and The Black Keys. For the design, Helton found inspiration in the name All Secrets Known. The eye-in-the-mouth graphic is a play on seeing all that’s been spoken, while the color scheme is a nod to the cover art on Black Gives Way to Blue.
In 2016, Hletko partnered with The Flaming Lips to create Brainville Rye Whiskey before connecting with Alice In Chains for the original release of All Secrets Known. In 2022, FEW teamed up with indie darlings Black Rebel Motorcycle Club for Motor Oil Whiskey, an American whiskey finished in rum and vermouth barrels.
“It’s hard to say how much fun working with the bands has been,” Hletko said. “I’ve been a huge admirer of the band forever and in the same way musicians inspire one another, working with them inspired me as a distiller to do something different. I’m excited to build on that legacy.”
Beginning September 28, just 3300 bottles of All Secrets Known will be released, all of which will be available nationally through FEW’s direct-to-consumer channels.
