Blackened American Whiskey: Aging to the Beat of Metallica

Picture this: barrels of whiskey, aging gracefully to the thunderous tunes of Metallica. That’s the magic behind Blackened American Whiskey, a collaboration between the legendary rock band and master distillers. They’ve got this crazy aging process called BLACK NOISE, that they refer to as a sonic enhancement process. Low hertz frequencies of Metallica’s music literally rocks the barrels, infusing the whiskey with a symphony of flavors. It’s like headbanging in a glass, and trust us, it’s as epic as it sounds.

Snoop Dog & Dr. Dre Create Gin & Juice
Snoop Dog and Dr. Dre are making waves with their latest venture — Gin & Juice. This iconic duo, known for their groundbreaking contributions to hip-hop culture, has joined forces once again to create their first ready-to-drink beverage.

Reverb Distilling: Notes of Innovation

When it comes to pushing the boundaries of creativity, Reverb Distilling takes center stage. Another client of ours, Reverb Distilling is inspired by the vibrant music scene of Portland, Oregon. This innovative distillery is on a mission to craft spirits that are as bold and eclectic as the city itself. With a lineup that includes gin, vodka, and rum, Reverb Distilling combines traditional craftsmanship with a modern twist, creating drinks that are as distinctive as they are delicious. 

Reverb creates movement in the barrel house using speakers that send sound waves out in all directions. These waves reflect off surfaces in the space, including the barrels, which receive light vibration and agitation, contributing to the aging process. They also have Spotify playlists for you to listen to. 

These music-inspired brands are not just about making great liquor—they’re about celebrating the music that inspires us and the artists who bring it to life. So whether you’re a blues aficionado, a rock ‘n’ roll rebel, or a fan of all things innovative, there’s a bottle out there with your name on it.
