Almost every superhero worth their salt has various product tie-ins, from t-shirts to surfboards to you name it. But only one superhero has not one, not two, but three alcoholic beverages named after him: Mike Mignola’s demonic superhero Hellboy.
Last year, we told you about a new brand of Hellboy wine that was hitting stores, and before that, a draft ale with his name on it was also produced. Now, Big Red is also getting his own brand of Hellboy Hell Water Cinnamon Whiskey. So take that, Wolverine.Officially announced by Dark Horse Comics, XXX Distillery LLC and Prestige Imports LLC, this is the first ever whiskey based on Mike Mignola’s legendary comic book hero Hellboy. Hell Water Cinnamon Whiskey is a craft distilled, small batch, naturally flavored cinnamon corn whiskey retailing for $19.99 for a 750ml bottle. The 66.6 proof (heh) Hellboy Hell Water Cinnamon Whiskey is available nationally and can be ordered at www.hellboyhellwater.com.
In a statement, Dark Horse Comics Publisher Mike Richardson said, “At 66.6 proof, Hellboy Hell Water packs a punch worthy of Mike Mignola’s iconic creation. It’s appropriate that Hellboy Hell Water Cinnamon Whiskey was made in the Smokey Mountains.” Teddy Jones of XXX Distillery added, “We’re very excited about the success and potential of our hand crafted whiskeys, especially that of Hellboy Hell Water Cinnamon Whiskey.”
With a new movie reboot on the way with Stranger Things‘ own David Harbour playing Hellboy, the heroic demon spawn certainly has plenty of reasons to celebrate with a nice bottle of whiskey this year.
