Production Process

The innovative production process of Judas Priest - 50 Heavy Metal Years Single Malt Whisky begins with barley malt that undergoes gentle smoking over beech wood, infusing a subtle smokiness into the whisky. Crafted in Germany, the whisky is aged for more than four years in ex-Bourbon, ex-Rye, and ex-Brandy Jerez casks, allowing it to develop a complex array of flavors. By incorporating beech smoked malt, the whisky acquires a soft-peated character, capturing the essence of the band's iconic sound and delivering an exceptional drinking experience that is truly unforgettable.
