BLACKENED® Whiskey is born from Metallica’s spirit of innovation, steeped in science, and honed by seasoned experts. The original recipe was envisioned by our Founding Distiller Dave Pickerell, who was renowned for his whiskey finishes that he dubbed “flavoring for adults”. Dave hand-selected the finest straight whiskeys available for the original blend and chose to finish the whiskey in brandy casks. BLACKENED Whiskey is now crafted and propelled onward by category disruptor and Master Distiller & Blender Rob Dietrich, who has continued to evolve this recipe while staying true to Dave’s legacy.
The BLACK NOISE process was co-developed by engineers at Meyer Sound, global leaders in sound technology. This 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. The result is a magnificently balanced whiskey that’s robust in flavor and ideal for sipping neat, on the rocks, or in a classic signature cocktail.
