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

Motörhead Premium Dark Rum marks two year anniversary with fifth global award



The expanding Motörhead Spirits portfolio has in recent years been led by the rising success of Motörhead Premium Dark Rum, which just now has received recognition by the internationally respected Beverage Testing Institute as '2020 Best Rum'.

Since launch in December 2018, Motörhead Premium Dark Rum has sold close to 200,000 bottles and is available in more than 15 countries. As part of the brand strategy there has been a strong focus on securing accolades for the product’s quality, in order to take the rum from a staple in the Motörhead fan’s spirit shelf to a favourite also amongst rum and beverage connoisseurs.

To date, with extremely fierce competition from all international beverage giants and often more than 100 direct competitors, Motörhead Premium Dark Rum has won a gold medal in The Fifty Best, a gold medal in The Spirits Business Masters 2020, a bronze medal in the San Francisco World Spirits Awards, a platinum medal in the Beverage Testing Institute International Review of Spirits (BTI ), and has now been crowned Best Rum of 2020 by BTI.

In the Nordics, Motörhead Premium Dark Rum has won tenders for shelf listings in both Systembolaget (Sweden) and Alko (Finland) due to the high quality liquid. In Sweden, Motörhead Premium Dark Rum is the market leader in the segment ‘dark rum over SEK 300’ (€29). This early success has garnered interest from the international export market, with the rum enjoyed as far as Japan and Australia.

"Motörhead Premium Dark Rum has, since the launch, become our flagship product that is at the forefront of the spirits portfolio from Brands For Fans. With the tender wins from the Nordic monopolies, we knew the product quality that our master blender Daniel Henriksson delivers is extremely high, but the international success from the tasting competitions has surprised even us. Being named the best rum of the year by BTI is incredible and if we look at the winners in the other categories, we are humbled that we are on the same level. The most important proof of product quality is however, rising sales, and even there we are proud and grateful for the response from consumers. "says Filip Lundquist, CEO of Umida Group AB (publ).
