Metallica have launched their own drink, Blackened American Whiskey

Metallica have announced their own brand of whiskey.

Blackened American Whiskey, named after the opening track on the band's 1988 album ...And Justice for All, has been produced in collaboration with distiller Dave Pickerell.

"We are obviously not just slapping a Metallica label on a pre-existing mediocre whiskey," the band say in a statement announcing the launch, adding that they have been "working on this for the last several years and overseeing every detail from the first idea to your first taste with careful precision"

The whiskey will be available in select shops, restaurants and bars later this year, and each bottle will come with an accompanying playlist. You can find more information here.
