Come around you rovin' gamblers. Bob Dylan's spirits company, Heaven's Door Spirits, has partnered with Las Vegas behemoth MGM Resorts International on an exclusive limited-edition bourbon, 777 Blend.
Of course, the name nods to the mystique surrounding the number 777 in the gaming community, but it also describes the blend within. It's crafted from a blend of three 7-year-old whiskeys; a brand-new wheated bourbon, a low rye bourbon, and a straight rye whiskey.
The resulting spirit has notes of bing cherry, baked bread, brown sugar, dried fruit, toasted oak, and nutmeg. It's bottled at 46.8 percent ABV, so don't be afraid to add a splash of water or enjoy it on the rocks if you prefer.
MGM Resorts and Ryan Perry, Heaven's Door's Master Blender, worked together to create this special bourbon. "We're bringing fans an exclusive new whiskey that's a true representative of our brand's dedication to celebrating music, whiskey, and art and look forward to continuing [to craft] new liquids and forging unique partnerships that give them an experience you can't find elsewhere," said Perry in a statement released to Travel + Leisure.
This isn't the first collaboration between the two legends. Dylan designed "Portal," a 26-foot by 15-foot sculpted iron archway, for MGM National Harbor in Maryland. "Portal" is included on the label art of the new bottle. "This partnership is a natural continuation and celebration of Bob Dylan's 'Portal' gate at MGM National Harbor, and we're honored to have collaborated with their team to bring this new offering to life," concluded Perry.
This custom blend is only available at MGM Resorts in Las Vegas (including properties like the Bellagio, Aria, and NoMad Las Vegas) and MGM National Harbor in Maryland, so Dylan and bourbon fans should book their flights now before it's gone. The collaboration offers MGM guests a rare opportunity to taste one of Heaven's Door's most exclusive blends, as well as experience Dylan's art, in a fun-loving setting.
