NASHVILLE, Tenn., Feb. 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Heaven's Door, a collection of American whiskeys created by Bob Dylan and Spirits Investment Partners, is expanding its global presence into the United Kingdom and Germany. Introduced stateside in 2018, Heaven's Door has been lauded on a global scale since inception, garnering top awards in premier spirits competitions, including the 2019 London Spirits Competition, where Heaven's Door Double Barrel Whiskey was named "Whisky of The Year," "Spirit of The Year by Quality," "Spirit of The Year by Value," and "Best in Show."
With an ever-increasing demand from consumers and retailers alike, particularly Dylan's established fan base overseas, Heaven's Door is excited to now enter the European market with its inaugural trio of American whiskeys.
"This is an exciting milestone for us as we bring Heaven's Door to the U.K. and Germany, where Bob Dylan kicked off his first ever European tour more than 55 years ago," said Marc Bushala, CEO of Heaven's Door Spirits.
First introduced two years ago to wide acclaim, and with more than 35 global awards amassed in that short amount of time, Heaven's Door is the perfect melding of art and craft. The Heaven's Door international portfolio includes a Tennessee Straight Bourbon (84 proof, 700ml), Double Barrel Whiskey (100 proof, 700ml) and Straight Rye Whiskey finished in cigar barrels from Vosges, France (86 proof, 700ml). Each bottle features design elements from Bob Dylan's unique ironwork sculptures.
The Heaven's Door portfolio is now available in the U.K. and Germany, as well as Canada (750ml). To purchase Heaven's Door, contact your local liquor retailer or visit one of the following websites to order online:

About Bob Dylan:
Bob Dylan is generally regarded as one of the world's most influential and groundbreaking artists. In the decades since he first burst into the public's consciousness via New York City's Greenwich Village folk music scene in the early 1960s, Bob Dylan has sold more than 125 million records and amassed a singular body of work that includes some of the greatest and most popular songs the world has ever known. He continues to traverse the globe each year, performing more than 100 concerts annually in front of audiences who embrace his new material with the same passion as his classic output. In recent years, his work as an author and visual artist has further burnished his popularity and acclaim; a worldwide best-selling memoir, Chronicles Vol. 1, spent 19 weeks on the New York Times Best Seller List, in 2004, and several major exhibitions of his paintings and iron gates have been shown in recent years at some of the world's most prestigious museums and galleries.
Bob Dylan's contributions to our culture have been recognized with numerous honors and accolades. In December 2016, he was awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature by the Swedish Academy "for having created new poetic expressions within the great American song tradition." In 2012, he was awarded America's highest civilian honor, the Presidential Medal of Freedom, by President Barack Obama. In addition to winning 11 Grammy Awards, Dylan has achieved six entries in the Grammy Hall of Fame, which honors recordings of "qualitative or historical significance" at least 25 years old. Bob Dylan recently released his 38th studio album, a triple-album set aptly titled, Triplicate.
