Two Classic Rockers With New Liquor Ventures

Two of the rockers you know and love are expanding in the liquor business.

First we have Bob Dylan opening up a whiskey distillery in downtown Nashville in 2020 under his already established Heaven’s Door Whiskey brand. And the best part is that…wait for it…it will open up in an old church! What a really cool concept that will also include a performance venue.

A news release says Heaven’s Door Spirits will transform the 160-year-old Elm Street Church into the Heaven’s Door Distillery and Center for the Arts, featuring the distillery, a whiskey library, a restaurant and a 360-seat live performance venue.

Then there’s the Red Rocker himself. Already the proprietor of the established brands Cabo Wabo and Beach Bar rum, Sammy Hagar is creating a new agave-based liquor called Santo Fino Tequila.

Think you’ve heard a lot about musicians jumping on the booze train? You’re right. Here’s just a few alcohol brands started or associated with rock and rollers:

Vince Neil: Tatuado Vodka and Tequila, Tres Rios Tequila

Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top): Pura Vida Tequila

Carlos Santana: DVX wine

The Rolling Stones: Suntory Whiskey

Ozzy Osbourne: Solar Red wine, The Brewer’s Art beer

KISS: KISS This wine, Destroyer beer

Pearl Jam: Faithful Ale

AC/DC: Rock or Bust beer, Back in Black wine, Thunderstruck tequilia

Jimi Hendrix: Purple Haze liqueur

Queen: Killer Queen vodka, Bohemian lager

Whitesnake: Whitesnake Zinfandel

Metallica: Enter Night beer

Just to name a few.
