By now everyone knows that Motrhead walk their own path and do things their own way. To celebrate 40 years of eardrum crushing, Motrhead Whisky is now released in collaboration with beverage partner Brands For Fans and award-winning Swedish distillery Mackmyra.
The un-compromising attitude that characterises the bands music is also obvious in Motrhead Whisky: bourbon-influences up front, its an alert and vital almost cocky perfectly balanced whisky with nice caramel and typical vanilla notes from American oak.
The band have played an active role in both choosing casks and blends to put their name on the label. With Motrhead 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, Motrheads legendary front man, founder, gravel-voiced vocalist and bass player says: Life is less painful with Motrhead Whisky. I may consider having a sip now and then.
Mikkey Dee, Motrhead-drummer: We think its 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 flavoured with a superb bourbon touch, as its been aged in bourbon 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, Motrhead-style.
