BLACKENED® is an award-winning whiskey that is a blend of the finest straight bourbon & rye whiskeys and uniquely finished and sonically- enhanced in brandy casks, using the BLACK NOISETM process to extract more flavor from the wood. The original recipe was envisioned by our Founding Master Distiller Dave Pickerell. BLACKENED Whiskey is now crafted and propelled onward by category disruptor and Master Distiller & Blender Rob Dietrich.
BLACKENED Whiskey celebrates Metallica’s much anticipated new album with the Limited Edition 72 Seasons Batch using the new album in the sonic-enhancement process. This limited edition bottle highlights elements inspired by the album including a striking yellow capsule with the signature Metallica M, and the 72 Seasons logo prominently displayed on the front of the bottle.
“It’s kind of like we’re bottling key Metallica memories with these limited release batches. We did it with S&M2 and The Black Album and now we’re doing it with 72 Seasons. It’s awesome to share this experience with the band and the fans.” Rob Dietrich, BLACKENED’s Master Distiller & Blender.
