Sometimes you just need to take the edge off a bad day or week in some cases. You might also need a way to celebrate a big occasion. In either case, why not pour out a shot modeled after your favorite giant-fisted demon Hellboy?
XXX Distillery LLC has partnered with Prestige Imports and Dark Horse Comics to offer a potent new creation called Hellboy Hell Water Cinnamon Whiskey. It's quite fitting that the new concoction comes in 66.6 proof, and it was created using the traditional methods of corn whiskey brewing. “It’s appropriate that Hellboy Hell Water Cinnamon Whiskey was made in the Smokey Mountains,” said Dark Horse Comics Publisher Mike Richardson. “At 66.6 proof, Hellboy Hell Water packs a punch worthy of Mike Mignola’s iconic creation.”
"We’re very excited about the success and potential of our hand crafted whiskeys, especially that of Hellboy Hell Water Cinnamon Whiskey,” said Teddy Jones, XXX Distillery, Sevierville, Tennessee. “At XXX Distillery of Tennessee, we take great pains to ensure the quality and taste of our products are second to none. If you put Hellboy Hell Water Cinnamon Whiskey up against any other, there's no comparison. It's the finest cinnamon whiskey on the market, period."
Hellboy's Hell Water is available now nationally, but you can also grab some by visiting the official website. Hell Water retails for $19.99 (per 750 ml bottle), and you can also get a closer look at the bottle in the gallery.
Speaking of Hellboy, the fan favorite will also soon be getting an anthology from Dark Horse Comics titled Hellboy: An Assortment of Horrors. The book is slated to hit this August, and you can find the official description of the book below.
