To celebrate MOTÖRHEAD‘s 40 years of eardrum crushing, Motörhead Whisky is now released in collaboration with beverage partner Brands For Fans and award-winning Swedish distillery Mackmyra.
The uncompromising attitude that characterizes MOTÖRHEAD‘s music is also obvious in Motörhead Whisky: bourbon influences up front, it’s an alert and vital – almost cocky — perfectly balanced whisky with nice caramel and typical vanilla notes from American oak. October 1 sees the release of Motörhead Whisky at Systembolaget in Sweden to start with, and the band has played an active role in both choosing casks and blends to put its name on the label.
With Motörhead Whisky, the band have made two top releases in one blow since the new album “Bad Magic” was just released earlier this summer and topped the charts in several countries.
Lemmy Kilminster, MOTÖRHEAD‘s legendary frontman, founder, gravel-voiced vocalist and bass player, says: “Life is less painful with Motörhead Whisky. I may consider having a sip now and then.”
MOTÖRHEAD drummer Mikkey Dee states: “We think it’s great fun to launch a whisky in collaboration with a Swedish, world-famous distillery, Mackmyra.
“The whisky is incredibly good, with full character and fully flavored with a superb bourbon touch, as it’s been aged in new American oak casks.
“All of us in the band have been active in the production process and are very proud over the result, and are happy to now launch such a great, characteristic whisky, MOTÖRHEAD style.”
