Blackened American Whiskey is a collaboration between rock legends Metallica and late Master Distiller Dave Pickerell, and is now available for purchase in Australia exclusively through Groglords.
Blackened was created in 2018 through a collaboration between Metallica and late master distiller Dave Pickerell. It is made from a blend of North American bourbons and ryes that have been individually aged for an average of 8+ years. The blend is finished in black brandy casks while being pummeled with the low hertz frequencies of Metallica’s music. The proprietary sonic-enhancement process called Black Noise uses the movement from the sound waves to extract more flavours from the wood. In June of 2019, master distiller and blender Rob Dietrich joined the fold after the passing of Pickerell, overseeing the sourcing, blending, and cask finishing of the barrels for each batch.
Blackened is available for presale on Groglord’s website for $129. It’s expected to start shipping on February 6th.
