You’ve read the comics and you’ve seen the films, but until now, you’ve never been able to drink the alcohol! Now you can with Hellboy Hell Water Cinnamon Whiskey, made in good ol’ Smokey Mountains. The whiskey is 66.6 proof (obviously), and you can order a bottle right here. Now, you may think that a brand of alcohol based on a comic book is just a quick way to make a buck—and it probably is that in a way—but based on some of the information provided by the distillery responsible for Hell Water, Tennessee’s XXX Distillery, this drink might actually be worth a shot.
At XXX Distillery of Tennessee, we take great pains to ensure the quality and taste of our products are second to none. If you put Hellboy Hell Water Cinnamon Whiskey up against any other, there’s no comparison. It’s the finest cinnamon whiskey on the market, period.
“Finest cinnamon whiskey on the market” is a pretty confident claim, but anything associated with the exquisite franchise that is Hellboy can probably get away with it. Anyone who’s a fan of Fireball Whiskey and also a fan of Hellboy looks to be the main target consumer here for Hell Water.
As a fan of both Hellboy, alcohol, and those two things together, I’m really into this idea, but definitely not for other franchises. I would definitely never in a million years recommend that someone buy Batman bourbon or Doctor Strange vodka, but Hellboy Hell Water at 66.6 proof? Hell yes. The question isn’t “should I buy a bottle of Hellboy Hell Water?” The question is, “do I buy two so that I have one for display?” and also, “what happens if I drink the display? Should I just go ahead and buy three bottles right now?!” I would say yes.
