Anthrax has teamed up with New York’s Hudson Valley Highlands' Hillrock Estate Distillery to produce a limited 360 bottle run of high end signature bourbon. “The Healer,” Solera-aged in a King’s Barrel, is named in honor of Pantera's Dimebag Darrell. The band released the following:
"'Booze is the healer' is something the late Dimebag Darrell would regularly say to the band when they were on tour together, and if the guys arrived for soundcheck a little hungover, Dimebag would be standing there with a knowing Cheshire Cat smile and a shot of whiskey at the ready."

"Healer" his is a highly limited, cask strength edition of Hillrock's famous Solera Aged Bourbon personally selected by Anthrax.
"The slight cinnamon aromas are surprising along with the oaked caramel-vanilla and floral, fruit notes on the nose of this golden amber bourbon. Sweet, yet spicy full-bodied flavors are warm with maple syrup, brown sugar, molasses, toffee, roasted corn, and raisin notes on the palate are balanced by spicy notes of clove and cinnamon. The medium to long warm finish abounds with sweet caramel and butterscotch. Familiar characteristic of Oloroso sherry flavors of walnut, fig and candied fruit balance the spicy rye undertones. A lush and velvety expression of our Solera Aged Bourbon amplified at undiluted proof. Specially selected for its clear Oloroso sherry influence and delicate balance of proof and flavor, as well as it’s incredibly long finish. A truly decanter worthy bottling."
