All Secrets Known, a new, limited-release bourbon distilled by Few Spirits master distiller Paul Hletko in collaboration with Grammy-nominated and multi-platinum-selling Seattle grunge pioneers ALICE IN CHAINS. Bottles feature a custom-designed label by artist Justin Helton.
All Secrets Known (SRP: $75/750 ml), a nod to the name of the opening track of ALICE IN CHAINS‘ 2009 gold-certified release “Black Gives Way To Blue”, is Few bourbon finished for six months in tequila barrels and bottled at the most rock and roll of proofs, 101 (50.5% ABV). Bold, sweet, and spicy bourbon top notes that have become the hallmark of Few and led to multiple category awards, are accentuated by grassy agave undertones.
The new All Secrets Known bourbon whiskey, according to those behind it, takes FEW Spirits’ regular bourbon offering and finishes it for six months in ex-tequila barrels before bottling it at 1o1 proof (50.5% ABV). The idea in creating such an expression as a tie in to Alice in Chains is that “there no two spirits that have a closer association with rock and roll than whiskey and tequila.” The bourbon is said to be “a nod to the name of the opening track of Alice In Chains’ 2009 certified Gold release Black Gives Way To Blue.”

Murder In The Front Row: The San Francisco Bay Area Thrash Metal Story. In the early 1980’s, a small group of dedicated Bay Area headbangers shunned the hard rock of MTV and Hollywood hairspray bands in favor of a more dangerous brand of metal that became known as thrash!

The film is a social study of a group of young people defying the odds and building something essential for themselves. Featuring interviews with Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Anthrax, Exodus, Testament, Death Angel, Possessed and many more! Narrated by Brian Posehn.
