Winemaking Information

Crafted from Kentucky straight rye whiskeys aged between 5-8 years and hand-selected by BLACKENED Master Distiller & Blender Rob Dietrich.

RYE THE LIGHTNING™ was double finished in Madeira and Rum casks. It is during the rum cask finishing that the whiskey undergoes the proprietary BLACK NOISE™ sonic enhancement process that uses the low hertz frequencies from Metallica’s music to vibrate the barrels, causing a greater interaction between the whiskey and the wood, forcing the liquid further into the barrel and extracting more flavor and color. This expression has notes of brown sugar, honey, mint and hay followed by spice and wood notes from the rum cask finish.

The bottle’s label is emblazoned with a green soundwave to differentiate from the Blackened American Whiskey flagship and align with the historical significance of using the color green to characterize rye whiskey bottles.

The 10-track BLACK NOISE playlist includes: 1. Ride The Lightning Intro 2. The Call of Ktulu 3. Creeping Death 4. Escape (Live Debut) 5. Trapped Under Ice 6. Kirk Solo 7. Fade to Black 8. For Whom the Bell Tolls 9. Ride The Lightning 10. Fight Fire with Fire
