The Press Release:
Like us, BLACKENED® American Whiskey started with 81. Now they’re bringing you a collectible, limited edition box set commemorating Batch 100 of their gold medal award-winning spirit.
Merging the worlds of whiskey and music, this box set contains two exclusive 12” vinyl picture discs featuring the Metallica playlist selected by Blackened’s Master Distiller & Blender, Rob Dietrich, and used during the sonic enhancement process of Batch 100.
This box is also the only place you can get the first issue of the Blackened Zine. Blackened’s take on an old school music zine features background on the collaboration between Metallica and Blackened’s Master Distillers, first the late Dave Pickerell and now Rob Dietrich; insight into the whiskey making process behind Blackened from flavor profiles to Blackened’s proprietary Black Noise “sonic enhancement” technology; a note from Lars Ulrich introducing Rob Dietrich’s playlist; track list featured on the Batch 100 playlist, with commentary from Rob Dietrich; and a Blackened cocktail recipe and tips from featured bartender Bad Birdy.
Finally, you’ll also receive Blackened accessories including a branded canvas tote, enamel pin, premium die cut sticker, and collectible guitar pick.
Batch 100 will only be available as part of this box set, which can be purchased online at BlackenedWhiskey.com. Supplies are limited. Must be 21 years or older.*

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Metallica fans around the world are surely going to love this but they are going to need to be at least 21+ in order to be able to try and get their hands on one of these limited boxed sets. As a Metal fan and collector of all sorts of awesome, even I’m considering this and I am not at all a whiskey drinker. Oddly enough, this pandemic process has found me not drinking a single drop of alcohol anything since the middle of March. I guess its the lack of fun-filled, celebratory functions and friendly gatherings that have found this being the case. That being said I wonder who among the readership is considering getting this item. You can chime in down below in the comments section. See you next time.
