JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — Iconic, Jacksonville-born rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd announced the release of their new Hell House Whiskey, a spirit that pays tribute to the famous cabin where they wrote many of their hit songs.
In a release from the brand, the whiskey is considered the “embodiment” of the Hell House cabin, which is where founding members Ronnie Van Zant, Gary Rossington and Allen Collins wrote many of the songs many have come to love. The cabin still stands as a historical marker in Green Cove Springs.
Current band member Johnny Van Zant attributes the band’s enduring popularity to the “legacy of Lynyrd Skynyrd and what it stands for, what the fans are all about. There’s nothing like getting out there, playing a great show with Skynyrd, seeing people love this music, and now being able to raise a glass of our very own Hell House Whiskey together. It’s a toast to the timeless spirit of rock and roll.”
The whiskey brand’s release coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Lynyrd Skynyrd’s debut album, “(Pronounced ‘Lĕh-’nérd ‘Skin-’nérd).” The album was released on Aug. 13, 1973.
Hell House Whiskey will be available online at www.hellhousewhiskey.com with a suggested retail price of $49.99/750 ML.
