Kerrang!: HOW BLACKENED BATCH 100 DISTILLS THE PURE ESSENCE OF METALLICA
Is there anything more metal than blasting Metallica at a barrel of whiskey to make it taste better? This is literally how Metallica’s Blackened American Whiskey gets its flavour. No, really. The good people of Sweet Amber Distilling Co., as part of the finishing process, have developed the BLACK NOISE™ system, in which low frequency sounds vibrate the whiskey inside the barrel to tease flavours out of the wood. So, naturally, it being Metallica, the drink gets a whole load of The Four Horsemen pumped into it. Science, like.
