Anthrax today unveiled their new line of Burbon dubbed “The Devil You Know”, named for their song ‘The Devil You Know’ from 2011’s Worship Music (Megaforce) album. The limited-edition Bourbon retails for $59 and is available here. http://bit.ly/1egO347 “Hand selected” by the veteran thrash band and created in conjunction with Kentucky-based Knob Creek distillery, ever order comes with an autographed card from the band.
Scott Ian comments on the creation of Devil You Know Bourbon:
“If we find something we really like and that we actually drink ourselves, we think maybe our fans might like it too, so we want to make it available for them”. “We really enjoyed ‘Indians,’ the bourbon we produced last year, and obviously our fans did as well as it sold out really quickly.”
The band promised the drink will be truly unique due to the blend of specially selected aged bourbons and rye whiskeys, as well as the wood barrels they were aged in.
Frank Bello remarked about the process:
“We had a great time sampling the different bourbons to find the one we thought was the best… And we hope our fans have the same good time drinking it. Responsibly, of course.”
Anthrax is on tour all year as the progress towards the follow up to Worship Music, due out in early 2016.
