Blackened is an American whiskey made by Sweet Amber Distilling in collaboration with the award-winning band Metallica. The band came into this collaboration with Master Distiller Dave Pickerell to make a high-quality whiskey that is unlike any other - and they achieved just that.
Starting with bourbon and rye, which were chosen by Dave Pickerell himself, these were mixed until a bourbon-forward spirit was achieved with just enough rye to add the savoury spiciness that pairs so beautifully with bourbon's natural sweetness. This mixture was left to age in black brandy casks to add yet another layer of flavour to the product. Finally, the whiskey was matured using "Black Noise" - a proprietary process that only Blackened uses. A specific playlist chosen by the band is played to the slumbering whiskey. This sonic aspect causes the whiskey to move more and interact more with the barrel and pick up more notes of spice and character from the barrel.
Whisky and music have been partners for a long time, but never quite in this way. Thanks to the collaboration from these masters in their fields, we can enjoy a blended American whiskey that has been re-mastered into a balanced and robust super-premium spirit perfect for any whiskey lover out there.
