It is impossible to imagine the world of modern music without acknowledging the impact of iconic UK band, Motörhead. Apart from creating their own auditory tsunami of sound, Motörhead have also made their mark in the world of drinks, with their Premium Dark Rum so far having received four globally recognised spirits award with only four competition entries.




In an effort to show the beverage industry that the brand is much more than just a successful band’s label on a bottle, the beverage company entered competitions where blind tasting would allow the quality to take centre stage.

To add to their 2019 Gold Medal with ‘The Fifty Best’ for Aged Rum, the results from 2020 include:
2020 – The Rum Masters, The Spirits Business – UK, Gold Award
2020 – International Review of Spirits, Beverage Testing Institute – USA, Platinum Award
2020 – San Francisco Spirits Competition – USA, Bronze Award

One of the most notable is the Platinum Award at the International Review of Spirits by the Beverage Testing Institue – Motörhead Premium Dark Rum is the top scoring rum of 2020. It is the only product which scored 96 points and comes in at 5th place of ALL 244 rums tested in the awards over the past three years. The band’s involvement in their beverage brand over the years has been significant, as it was their dream at last realised.

Commenting on the recent awards, drummer Mikkey Dee says: “We work really hard on all our drinks and are ready to take on anyone – that’s always been the Motörhead way”.
