Mackmyra - Motorhead Whisky Final Batch
By now everyone knows that Motörhead walk their own path and do things their own way. To celebrate 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 un-compromising attitude that characterises the band’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.
The band have played an active role in both choosing casks and blends to put their name on the label.
Lemmy Kilminster, Motörheads legendary front man, founder, gravel-voiced vocalist and bass player says: “Life is less painful with Motörhead Whisky. I may consider having a sip now and then.”
Mikkey Dee, Motörhead-drummer: “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 flavoured with a superb bourbon touch, as it’s 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, Motörhead-style.”
