The whiskey, according to a news release, was created by members of Metallica, including Trujillo and late master distiller David Pickerell in late 2018.

Master distiller Rob Dietrich, who took over the distillery after Pickerell’s passing, will also join Trujillo at the signing event.

The whiskey is described as a “blend of the finest North American bourbons and ryes married in black brandy caskets and finished to the low hertz frequencies of Metallica’s music via sonic-enhancement process.”
