More and more, some of the biggest artists in music are branching off and launching their own brands of alcohol. Whether it’s beer, wine or a spirit, it seems like every month, news comes out about a new artist with their own branded alcohol.
Bob Dylan is one such artist getting into the branded booze game as of late, and he’s in good company. Check out Dylan’s latest venture below, as well as four other artists with alcohol brands.
Bob Dylan – Heaven’s Door Whiskey
Dylan first announced Heaven’s Door Whiskey in April 2018 and featured three different whiskey varieties: a Tennessee Straight Bourbon Whiskey, a Double Barrel Whiskey and a Straight Rye Whiskey. Each bottle of Heaven’s Door also featured images of Dylan’s welded iron artwork he created in his Black Buffalo Ironworks studio. Just this week, it was announced that Dylan will be opening a new multi-purpose whiskey distillery/performance venue in Nashville in 2020.
Neil Giraldo – Three Chord Blended Bourbon
The guitarist partnered with Steel Bending Spirits, Inc. in July 2018 to create Three Chord Blended Bourbon. It’s currently available in 39 states and online at ThreeChordBourbon.com at the affordable price point of $39.99.
Queen – Killer Queen Vodka
When “Bohemian Rhapsody” celebrated its 40th anniversary, the band celebrated by issuing not only its own beer but its own brand of vodka, too. It’s available at a number of online retailers, including The Whisky Exchange. If you’re a sucker for cool labeling or packaging, you’ll surely want to pick up a fifth.
Sammy Hagar – Santo Fino Blanco
The Red Rocker has launched so many tequila or other liquor brands that it’s difficult to keep count anymore. His latest venture, however, was announced this week, and it’s a partnership with chef Guy Fieri. Their new tequila, Santo Fino Blanco, will launch in May.
Jon Bon Jovi – Hampton Water Rosé
The Bon Jovi frontman launched this wine brand with his son, Jesse, in 2018, and it’s already a major hit. Wine Spectator, a wine culture/lifestyle magazine, ranked Hampton Water number 83 on its Top 100 Wine list of 2018 and was the highest-ranking rosé on the list.
