About Alice in Chains All Secrets Known Bourbon Whiskey
Hidden down a dark alley in a former chop shop, skilled men are quietly violating one of Evanston's founding principles: Prohibition. In the 19th century, Frances Elizabeth Willard was elected President of the Chicago Woman's Christian Temperance Union and embarked on a decade-long crusade to prohibit alcohol in the United States. Willard worked tirelessly; as President of the WCTU, she traveled roughly 30,000 miles and gave an average of 400 lectures each year for an entire decade.
As a result, Evanston remained a dry town for over 100 years. It wasn't until Paul Hletko, owner and master distiller at FEW Spirits, began lobbying the town that the antiquated laws were lifted. "I'm the vice president of the PTA at my kids' school and I coach their soccer and T-ball teams", Hletko says. "People around town know me and what I'm about, which is handy when you're looking to change 100 years of laws." Today, Hletko and his team of master distillers produce FEW Rye Whiskey and FEW Bourbon Whiskey in the heart of Evanston, Illinois.
FEW spirits master distiller Paul Hletko collaborated with Jerry Cantrell, Sean Kinney, Layne Staley, Mike Inez and William DuVall from the band to create this special bourbon, finishing it for six months in ex-Tequila barrels.
"There are no two spirits that have a closer association with rock and roll than whiskey and tequila," says Hletko. Bottled at 101 proof, All Secrets Known takes its name from the opening track of the band's 2009 release Black Gives Way to Blue and features a custom-designed label by artist Justin Helton. The black-and-blue color schemed label is a tribute to the album Black Gives Way to Blue, on which "All Secrets Known" can be found. This inspired whiskey is bold, sweet, and spicy, with grassy undertones of agave.
