Collection Blackened - American Whiskey

Blackened Whiskey is a true collaboration between two icons from different worlds. Metallica, a heavy metal powerhouse; and Pickerell, a true pioneer of American whiskey .

Together, the two use a sound enhancement technique called "BLACK NOISE" to aid in the maturation of blackened whiskey. Essentially, Blackened Whiskey is made by pounding the whiskey in the cask through a Meyer's Sound subwoofer playing a selection of Metallica songs. This process agitates the whiskey in the casks, resulting in greater interaction with the cask wood and amplifying the flavors.

Following Pickerell's death in 2018, Metallica approached Rob Dietrich, formerly of Stranahan's Single Malt Whiskey, to take over as Distiller and Blender of Blackened American Whiskey.
