The Proof Is In The Flavor

What makes BLACKENED different?

No Gimmicks. All Science.

Black noise sonic enhancement

The BLACK NOISE TM sonic-enhancement process produces low hertz sound waves, causing the whiskey to reverberate at a fast rate, interacting with the oak staves of the barrel, measurably releasing wood compounds and flavors like toasted coconut, vanilla, butterscotch, and caramel.

Layering & Enhancing Flavors

Remastered and cask finished

Remastering whiskey means layering flavors during blending and enhancing the base through cask-finishing, while using our BLACK NOISE sonic enhancement to extract more flavor, resulting in a one-of-a-kind Blackened taste.

The Best Or Nothing

Created with Metallica’s Standards

Metallica approached whiskey-making the same way they’ve always approached music pushing to create something original and better. They work only with collaborators who share their uncompromising commitment to quality and pour their souls into it until they’ve made something that’s truly special.
