The long lived Motörhead Single Malt Whisky, created by the band and distilled by Swedish top whisky creators Mackmyra and a long-standing favourite with both fans and connoisseurs, is looking at its last and final release.



A passion project for the band - fronted by lead singer Lemmy Kilmister - the original recipe has continued to mature and improve uninterrupted in the barrels since 2008. After first release in 2015 and five years on the market, the blend has come to an end with the last barrels being produced as a Special Release Last Batch in smaller 50cl bottles. This means more fans can lay their hands on a piece of Motörhead history before they’re out of stock, and this is one bottle they won’t want to miss out on. With the extra years aging in oak barrels, this final bottling is whisky of an exceptional quality and smoothness, yet still distinctly recognisable as Motörhead Single Malt Whisky – or as we called it – Swhisky.


There are still a few remaining original 70cl bottles available, but when they’re gone, that’s the saga come to an end. Stone Dead Forever, or, one could argue Killed By Death.

Mackmyra Master Distiller Angela D’Orazio says: “Creating a whisky with legendary rock band Motörhead was a dream come true and it’s been a blast.

But all good things must come to an end, even a great whisky like this”. Mikkey Dee, drummer of Motörhead says: “The only problem with this last release of whisky is the size of the bottle. With whisky this good I’d prefer it to be in multi-gallon containers. This is not the end for Motörhead and whisky though – we’ll be working on something else that will proudly continue this spirited legacy”.

For Motörhead Spirits, nostalgia is not on the table. Only time can tell what’s next, but we can all rest assured it will be a no bullshit, no compromise and take-no-prisoner affair, as you would expect from the loudest band on earth. Lemmy’s words from Motörhead classic “Ace of Spades” have never rung more true: ‘…that's the way I like it baby I don't wanna live for ever…’ Motörhead Single Malt Whisky

Special Release is released on December 7:th at Systembolaget and will retail for SEK 499.

Scorpions celebrate their German roots in brand new whisky!

German heavy rock legends Scorpions continue to make waves, teaming up with Swedish top distillers Mackmyra to release ground-breaking whisky, adding a distinct and original German twist to the drink.

The affectionate relationship between Scorpions and their Swedish audience is not only manifested with the addition of Gothenburg-based drummer Mikkey Dee a couple of years ago; with the release of Scorpions Rock´n Roll Star Single Malt Whisky Cherry Cask, the German-Swedish love affair is taken to the next level.

Matured in American ex-bourbon barrels as well as former Oloroso sherry casks, but with an additional finish in German sweet cherry wine casks, the meeting between German wood-influences and Swedish whisky-craft could not have had a better end result. While maturing spirits in casks that have held sherry, port wine or madeira wine is relatively common in the world of malt whisky, the use of the German ex-sweet cherry casks is guaranteed to pique the interest of the whisky aficionados. The added cherry sweetness to the character complements the vanilla of the ex-bourbon casks and the nutty buttery flavours of the sherry casks beautifully.

The band themselves are thrilled to see the whisky finally be released, and commented:
“Finally, we have our own Scorpions Whisky ready to be released .... we love it ! This particular whisky gets to its perfect maturity in extraordinary German sweet cherry wine casks. We hope you all enjoy it .... let‘s Rock the Night and Taste the Sting!!!”

Angela D’Orazio, master distiller at Mackmyra said: ” Lovely guys to work with! Klaus, Rudolf, Matthias, Mickey and Pawel were very nice and interested in the process. I think we managed to get a smooth whisky with a lovely aroma of fruity vanillas from the bourbon casks, soft buttery tones from the oloroso sherry casks as well as a sweeter touch from the cherry casks. The fact that we got a finish of both cherry and sherry gave the whisky a perfect balance.”

Sari H Wilholm from Brands For Fans said: “To be able to work with an iconic band like Scorpions has been a blast. They have a classic catalogue of music, to say the least, and we’re really excited to be a part of building a, hopefully, equally iconic catalogue of drinks with the band!”
