Metallica is teaming up with veteran distiller Dave Pickerell to create not just their own whiskey, but build their own distillery as well. Pickerell, former master distiller with Maker’s Mark, was recently featured on the WhiskyCast, and said this, “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.”
He went on to add this about the possible locations of Metallica‘s very own distillery, “San Fransisco, the home of Metallica, Louisville, the home of bourbon, and Nashville, the home of music … one of those three seems to make sense. I”m voting for San Fransisco and the Bay Area, if nothing falls apart.”
