Daxton Hotel Partners with Bob Dylan’s Heaven’s Door Whiskey to Create a Bespoke Bourbon Blend
Two Luxury Brands Deeply Passionate About Art, Quality and Unparalleled Experiences Come Together to Create a One-of-a-Kind Spirit for Hotel Guests
Birmingham, Mich. (October 27, 2022) – Daxton Hotel, a modern luxury hotel located in Detroit’s northern metro area that seamlessly balances fine art, cutting-edge design, and lush accommodations, announces a partnership with Heaven’s Door, a collection of handcrafted American Whiskeys co-created with esteemed singer-songwriter-artist, Bob Dylan. Pulling from the art-filled boutique hotel as inspiration, Heaven’s Door crafted a unique bourbon exclusively available at Daxton, named Heaven’s Door Daxton Single Barrel. This bespoke spirit will be available to enjoy at Daxton’s Geode Bar and Lounge, as well as flagship restaurant Madam.
Distilled with a custom Heaven’s Door mash bill and aged for five years, Master Blender Ryan Perry selected this cask strength single barrel for its robust flavors and rich color. With notes of creamed corn, clover honey, and hand toasted oak, there is an inherent sweetness and strong barrel extraction on both the nose and palate.
“The quality of Heaven’s Door’s award-winning portfolio of whiskeys matches the extraordinary quality of service and experience that we proudly provide our guests,” said Raj Radke, Daxton Hotel’s Managing Director. “Our two likeminded brands have come together to create a special spirit that can only be enjoyed at Daxton – where you are enveloped in a collection of museum-quality art, where you can revel in a night of live jazz music, and where you are transported to a place where your senses can soar.”
“Daxton Hotel has an intentional vision, and it was an honor to work alongside their amazing team,” said Ryan Perry, Heaven’s Door Master Blender. “As a Michigan native, I took tremendous pride in this project. I refused to select anything but the best and we landed on a true gem with this barrel select.”
The Heaven’s Door Daxton Single Barrel is truly best enjoyed neat, on the rocks, or with a splash of water. It features the following characteristics:
• Age – over 5 years
• Proof – 124.5
• ABV – 62.25%
• Nose – toasted caramel, butterscotch, toasted oak
• Palate – creamed corn, nutmeg, green grass
Heaven’s Door represents the uncompromising passion of musician Bob Dylan and draws inspiration from his artistic spirit to create a high-quality, exceptional tasting experience for the consumer. Daxton Hotel mirrors this passion, in what its team strives to deliver to guests each day. The property combines art with a globally inspired culinary program and attentive service, to provide an unmatched and unforgettable experience for guests.
