Open up a bottle and Enter Sandman! When it comes to Blackened Whiskey, nothing else matters... The brainchild of former WhistlePig distiller Dave Pickerell and global phenomenon Metallica, Blackened Whiskey is a budding innovator of interesting and exciting American whiskey. Exposing each barrel to the low-frequency soundwaves of the world's biggest Metal band, Metallica, the band curates a playlist specifically designed to penetrate the barrel and stimulate the whiskey, producing more contact with the barrel which enhances the oakiness and overall fullness of the whiskey's profile. Be it the entry-level American Whiskey, the punchy Cask Strength (bottled at 110.6 proof) or their outstanding collaboration with Willett, the Master of Whiskey Series Rye finished in Madeira Casks, Blackened is fast becoming one of the most exhilarating distillers of bourbon and rye whiskeys in America.
