Anthrax Unveil Own Brand of Bourbon
Anthrax are in a celebratory mood, with their recent Grammy nomination and embarking on the recording of a new album. The band can now toast their accomplishments with their own brand of bourbon, which they've named 'Indians' after one of their best known songs.
They have teamed up with the Kentucky company Jefferson's Bourbon, which produces limited-edition small batch whiskeys. 'Indians' is a single barrel bourbon that will have a unique taste because of its blend and the barrel it was aged in.
Bassist Frank Bello says, "We've been wanting to come up with a special item like this, something that was unusual, one-of-a-kind, not a t-shirt or hoodie or poster, and 'Indians' was perfect."
Anthrax's 'Indians' bourbon is now available exclusively through Atlantic City Bottle Company for $75 per bottle (in-store pick up) and $100 (shipped) and will come with a signed piece of the stave of the barrel that the bourbon was aged in.
The band's Grammy nomination is their sixth. They are up for the Best Metal Performance award for their Black Sabbath cover 'Neon Knights' from the tribute album 'Ronnie James Dio: This Is Your Life.'
Drummer Charlie Benante says, "It's been an honor every time we've been nominated, but this one is particularly special. To have been asked to contribute 'Neon Knights' to Ronnie's tribute album was an honor on its own; to have it nominated for a Grammy is just beyond the best."
