Just in time for gifting season, Bob Dylan’s whiskey brand has launched two new limited releases of its Heaven’s Door whisky.
The first is a 2021 Heaven’s Door Cask Strength Single Barrel, which is the brand’s latest release, and is part of a special collaboration between Heaven’s Door and The Bottle Haus, an online liquor delivery site that offers deals rare and exclusive throughout the United States. and around the world. This cask strength straight bourbon whiskey is bottled at 124 Proof, with a 62% ABV.
Heaven’s Door has also launched a second new offering for 2021: a limited edition Straight Bourbon Whiskey Cask Strength Single Barrel with ReserveBar.com. The gift set includes a 750 ml. bourbon whiskey bottle with a set of whiskey stones and a black velvet pouch for storage.
A great way to chill your glass of whiskey without diluting it with real ice cubes, ReserveBar says the red whiskey stones in this gift set are made from the same iron ore mined in Bob Dylan’s hometown.
The bottles that come with the ReserveBar and The Bottle Haus versions are inspired by the welded iron doors Dylan created at his studio, Black Buffalo Ironworks. The singer’s fascination with ironwork is said to have been inspired by his childhood in Hibbing, Minnesota, which has the largest open-pit iron mine in the world and is nicknamed “The Iron Range” of the United States.
“I wanted to create a collection of American whiskeys that, in their own way, tell a story,” Dylan said in a statement. “I have been traveling for decades and have been able to taste some of the finest whiskey spirits the world has to offer. It is an excellent whisky.
The ReserveBar and The Bottle Haus Heaven’s Door versions have been produced in an extremely limited edition, making them a great gift for whiskey lovers and Dylan fans. ReserveBar also offers a regular “Heaven’s Door Trilogy Pack” with a 200ml bottle of Heaven’s Door Tennessee Straight Bourbon Whiskey (90 Proof), Double Barrel Whiskey (100 Proof) and Straight Rye Whiskey (92 Proof).

The releases follow this spring’s collaboration between Heaven’s Door Whiskey and Redbreast Irish Whiskey, which has been dubbed “The Master Blenders’ Edition.” A tribute to Irish and American whiskey making, the collection sold out within days of its launch in May.
