Born in cask, forged by sound; BLACKENED is a blend of Straight American Whiskeys, with notes of honey, apricot, cinnamon, allspice, clove, and mint. BLACKENED derives from an unlikely collaboration between two legendary craftsmen, Master Distiller Dave Pickerell and Metallica. The whiskey isn’t just inspired by the iconic band’s music, it is literally shaped by it. The team behind BLACKENED has taken the concept of sonic-enhancement and turned it into BLACK NOISE™, a patent-pending process that pummels Metallica’s own music to shape and envelop the flavor profile. To achieve this process, sound waves need to hit a particular frequency range to effect and intensify the molecular interaction. This, coincidentally, was the specific frequency that the majority of Metallica’s music was played in. Every batch of BLACKENED will come with an accompanying playlist curated by Metallica at blackenedwhiskey.com and on major streaming platforms.
