BLACKENED is a blend of straight bourbons, ryes, & whiskeys from distilleries across North America – hand-selected by Master Distiller & Blender Dave Pickerell himself. Rob Dietrich became Master Distiller & Blender of BLACKENED in 2019. Rob, formerly the Master Distiller for
Stranahan’s Colorado Whiskey, has more than 13 years in the industry and is well-regarded for his unique limited-release, cask finish expressions.
The original BLACKENED is a blend of straight whiskeys finished in brandy casks. Our limited-edition releases have featured Madeira and Madiera and Rum Double Cask Finishes.
BLACKENED is a blend of straight whiskeys, all very well aged.
Like many of Dave’s whiskeys, the finishing process is between 2-10 weeks.
BLACKENED is 90 Proof, 45% Alc./Vol.
Our Cask Strength Whiskey is 113.07 Proof, 56.5 Alc./Vol.

Sonic-enhancement, or as we like to call it “BLACK NOISE”, is the use of sound waves to create an intensified interaction between the barrel and the whiskey.
The intensified interaction between the barrel and the whiskey during the finishing phase adds additional wood characteristics to the spirit.
Not at this time.
Each batch of BLACKENED has its own playlist, chosen by the band themselves. When resting in the finishing barrels, the music is played to the barrel – causing an intense reaction between the barrel and the whiskey imparting more wood character.
The playlists can be found here.
