Anthrax Releasing Limited Edition “Indians” Bourbon

Anthrax – which is now in the studio recording a new album – has announced the band’s own brand of bourbon, “Indians.”

Anthrax has aligned with Jefferson’s Bourbon, the Kentucky-based company that produces limited edition small batch whiskeys by blending a variety of aged bourbons and rye whiskeys. Anthrax’s “Indians,” a single barrel bourbon, was personally chosen by the band and will taste like no other due to its particular blend and the barrel it was aged in.

“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,” said the band’s Frank Bello, “and ‘Indians’ was perfect.”

The bourbon is now available exclusively through Atlantic City Bottle Company at this location. “Indians” will be priced at $75 per bottle (in-store pick up) and $100 (shipped to an address) and will come with a signed piece of the stave of the barrel that the bourbon was aged in.

Anthrax – Bello, Charlie Benante, Scott Ian, and Joey Belladonna – lifted “Indians”-filled shot glasses last Friday when the band found out that “Neon Knights,” a cover of the Black Sabbath song (from Sabbath’s 1980 release, “Heaven and Hell”) recorded for the “Ronnie James Dio – This is Your Life” tribute album got the nod in the Grammy Awards Best Metal Performance category.

“It’s been an honor everytime we’ve been nominated,” said Anthrax’s Benante, “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.”
