KISS Make Their Own Gin Now

When you think of your average KISS fan, there’s obviously one thing they’re drinking: martinis. Nobody is classier than a middle-aged dude in Peter Criss facepaint, which is why KISS fans are so widely regarded as friends of James Bond when it comes time to quaff some hard liquor. Now, KISS have finally decided to cash in on this connection by producing their own brand of gin. And yes, it’s called ‘Cold Gin.’ Like their song.

As reported by Ultimate Classic Rock, KISS’s Cold Gin is now available for preorder, going for £32.90, which is approximately $45 American. The site promises “well balanced, clear character of juniper, citrus and herbs, lemon peel, angelica root,” if that means anything to you.

“Now it really is Cold Gin time,” says guitarist Paul Stanley. “If gin is your thing then this is the one to bring. Like the song, this one’s a classic!”

Meanwhile, KISS just announced the next leg of their “End of the Road” tour, so get all lit up on KISS gin and go see the band one last time (maybe?) at one of the dates listed below:
