Metallica Talk Top-Secret Distilling Process Behind New ‘Blackened’ Whiskey

Lars Ulrich knows Metallica’s reputation. “Back in the day there was a lot made about Metallicaand ‘Alcoholica’ and all of our drinking habits,” he says. “But we didn’t have any money to drink anything other than white-label shitty beer and vodka. It wasn’t until we got to L.A. to make [1989’s] …And Justice for All album and the Black Album that I got more exposed to whiskey and Jack Daniel’s. Whiskey was something that we graduated to.”

The group and their master distiller explain how they blast the barrels with their music for deeper caramel notes

Now, after the band has dramatically tapered their drinking habits, they’re going into the whiskey business. About a year and a half ago, they launched their own Sweet Amber Distilling Co. and now they’re putting out their first release, Blackened, a blend of bourbons, ryes and whiskeys from around North America that they finish in black brandy barrels. The group decided to go into the whiskey business to find a new way “to connect with the audience,” according to the drummer, almost as an extension of its merchandizing.
