Lynyrd Skynyrd Brings Hell House Home to Jacksonville

Whitey’s Fish Camp Hosts Lynyrd Skynyrd’s Spectacular Homecoming and the Florida Debut of their Hell House Whiskey

JACKSONVILLE, Fla., Sept. 25, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Legendary Southern rock band, Lynyrd Skynyrd, is set for a triumphant return to their roots, promising a homecoming celebration like no other. In honor of the 50th anniversary of their groundbreaking debut album ‘Pronounced ‘Lĕh-‘nérd ‘Skin-‘nérd,’ the band is set to deliver two electrifying shows and offer fans the unique opportunity to meet the rock icons during two exclusive bottle signings.

On October 4, 2023, Lynyrd Skynyrd will kick off the festivities at Whitey’s Fish Camp, where fans can party with the band. Half a century ago, the band’s founding members were frequent patrons of Whitey’s Fish Camp. With the establishment celebrating its 60th anniversary at the same time as the band’s 50th, it was the natural choice for the special event to debut Hell House in Florida. This pre-party event will include a meet and greet, exclusive giveaways, and fans will have the opportunity to have their Hell House Whiskey bottles, personally signed by Johnny Van Zant and Rickey Medlocke.

Reflecting on the band’s 50-year journey, Johnny Van Zant, current lead vocalist of Lynyrd Skynyrd, shared, “Returning to Jacksonville to celebrate 50 years of music and memories is incredibly special to us. This city is where it all began, and the support from our fans has been unwavering. We can’t wait to connect with our fans, old and new, during this unforgettable homecoming and introduce them to Hell House Whiskey.”

In July 2023, Lynyrd Skynyrd partnered with Bespoken, a visionary craft whiskey maker renowned for its extraordinary achievements and a remarkable collection of over 160 medals within a mere three-year span. Together, they unveiled their very own American whiskey, aptly named Hell House, paying homage to the famous cabin where they crafted countless legendary songs. Hell House is an American Whiskey that embodies the same dedication and bold character that Lynyrd Skynyrd brought to rock and roll. Crafted with a mash bill featuring 75% corn, 21% rye, and 4% malt, it boasts tantalizing notes of honeydew, sorbet, butterscotch, and allspice. With a robust 45% ABV, Hell House is a drink for the hardworking soul in all of us.

Speaking about the collaboration, Bespoken’s CEO, Peter Iglesias, shared, “Working with Lynyrd Skynyrd to create Hell House has been an exhilarating journey. We’ve captured the essence of their music and the spirit of the South in every bottle. Hell House stands as a profound tribute to the band’s enduring legacy, and we’re thrilled to herald its return to Florida with this grand celebration.”
