The first collection is available now and costs around £45.00 a bottle. The batches, hand-crafted in small numbers, include a Tennessee Straight Bourbon Whiskey, a Double Barrel Whiskey and Straight Rye Whiskey finished in oak barrels from Vosges, France, and air-dried for 3 years.
Along with that, each bottle features designs based on Dylan’s iron sculptures, the gates he welds in his metalworking studio called Black Buffalo Ironworks.
The seed of this Dylan-endorsed liquor started back in 2015 when Bushala heard that Dylan had registered a trademark for the name Bootleg Whiskey. After that Bushala sought out a meeting with the singer-songwriter, and through a mutual friend it happened. From there they decided on the idea of creating collections of craft whiskey which had Dylan’s ironwork designs on the bottles.
