Metallica’s Blackened American Whiskey To Release Limited Edition “Rye The Lightning” Whiskey

Metallica have added another product to their Blackened American Whiskey line. The latest beverage is a limited edition Kentucky Straight Rye Double Cask Finished Whiskey called “Rye The Lightning.” The beverage got its name from the band’s 1984 album “Ride The Lightning.” A live version of that effort was played in reverse during the Black Noise sonic-enhancement process.

Bassist Robert Trujillo commented:

“The vibe from the crowd at the first Orion … was electrifying. And it’s really cool that we get to capture that energy in this release. We’ve used a few live songs in our playlists before, but never a full live playlist. So to be able to incorporate our fans in the Blackened journey and have them be a part of the whiskey-making process is really unique, and makes this a true collaboration.”

Master distiller Rob Dietrich added:

“I absolutely love the high spice and earthy notes in American rye whiskey! I wanted to play with those flavor profiles by bringing a symmetry of subtle flavor elements by combining not just one, but two different cask finishes to the whiskey, creating a complex balance of sweet and savory.”
