Metallica is commemorating the 100th batch of its gold medal award-winning Blackened American Whiskey with Sweet Amber Distilling Co. and Q104.3 is giving away Metallica prize packs to celebrate.

Batch 100 is available exclusively in a limited-edition box set that includes two 12-inch vinyl picture discs of the custom Metallica playlist used in the finishing process of the whiskey, as well as the first edition of the BLACKENED-Zine.
Blackened, launched in 2018, is a blend of North America's finest boubons and ryes. Master Distiller Dave Pickerell uses Metallica's music to literally shape the whiskey.
Using a proprietary sonic-enhancement process called Black Noise — low hertz vibrations of the music rock the black brandy casks during the finishing process, agitating the whisky and extracting more flavor from the wood.
