Metallica have proven they are masters of many talents and being distillers will be the next on that growing list.
According to Whiskeycast.com Metallica has teamed up with distiller Dave Pickerell who was the master distiller at Makers Mark for fourteen years. Pickerell was quoted by Whiskeycast speaking about his partnership with Metallica “I can just say that we’re going to make a killer whiskey product, and probably build a little distillery someplace as well…putting all the logistics together and crashing just as hard as we can,”
They have it narrowed down to 3 locations for the Metallica Distillery. San Francisco, Louisville or Nashville while leaning heavily towards San Francisco/Bay Area since its the home of Metallica.
Whiskey and Metallica fans should both be excited, they have teamed up with the right guy to make the tastiest whiskey they can!
Speaking of whiskey, although Metallica's whiskey won't be ready yet, you will be able to try over 100 different whiskeys and bourbons at our 3rd Annual Whisky Rocks NW coming up on March 10th!
