Motörhead whisky! This Mackmyra Swedish single malt, released in collaboration with Brands For Fans, was first released to mark "40 years of eardrum crushing". Matured for five years in new American oak barrels for a bourbon character, a small portion was also finished in Oloroso casks for six months. It's been described as "immediate", which should be music to fans' ears.
The band, including the one and only Lemmy Kilmister, Motörhead's legendary bass playing front man (who the world sadly lost at the end of 2015) helped choose the casks. As Motörhead's drummer Mikkey Dee explains, “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.”
