The behemoths of rock Metallica present Blackened American Whiskey, a blend of bourbon and rye whiskeys with an emphasis on the former. It was carefully selected by the late Master Distiller Dave Pickerell of WhistlePig fame, who is considered the founding father of craft distilling. Ever since he was a West Point student and later chemistry professor, Dave was interested in how sound could affect substances on a molecular level. They teamed up with Metallica and their long-time collaborators ― the innovating sound-engineering wizards Meyer Sound ― to create a special subwoofer that would transfer vibrations efficiently through the casks. They dubbed this proprietary process BLACK NOISE™, trademarked it, then proceeded to play tracks by Metallica ― chosen specifically for each batch by the band themselves ― to the whiskey.

The vibration helps each drop of liquid seep deeper into the wood, extracting flavors in the process, one heavy riff at a time. The result is a perfect balance of sweetness and rye spice, with additional fruity notes that come from finishing in black brandy casks. It's aged for more than 8 years and bottled at 90 proof. A Gold medal at the 2020 San Francisco World Spirits Competition is proof that the innovative approach has paid off.

The Blackened S&M2 Limited Edition whiskey commemorates the release of Metallica's second double album to feature an accompanying symphonic orchestra — S&M2. Recorded in collaboration with the San Francisco Symphony in 2019, it's a follow-up to their 1999 smash-hit S&M album. This special release comes in a specialty box with a design by the artist Squindo.
