Fancy a tipple with Mumford and Sons?

Grammy and Brit award winning folk rock band Mumford and Sons have recently revealed they’d like to launch their very own Scotch Whisky – well we hope its Scotch considering they are a British band!

During their recent Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park gig, they appointed Caskstrength – a quirky and creative booze design duo, Joel Harrison and Neil Ridley, to create a ‘backstage’ bespoke Whisky for them.  Using around 200 whiskies, from a tender young age to around 60 years old, they produced a unique Whisky for the four band members.  Adding a bit of extra fun, their family, friends and guests had the opportunity to fill little 100ml bottles featuring the gig poster on the label themselves!! Nice touch guys!

Whisky needs 3 years to mature before release and it looks like the band are getting in the know as Ben Lovett, the keyboard player, told The Sun

It”ll happen, it takes a few years to make so we better get cracking

As whisky lovers they will most likely choose a Single Malt, e.g. the base material must be 100% malted barley, produced from one distillery only and matured in oak for a minimum of 3 years on Scottish soil.  Many Single Malts are aged for a  lot longer though. Styles of whisky vary from light and floral to fruity and spicy to rich and rounded to full bodied and smoky.  See The Single Malt Whisky Flavour Map above for more details.  Wonder which style they’ll go for?

Happy trial and testing boys in your search for the creation of the perfect Mumford and Sons Whisky!!!  Sure you’ll have lots of fun along the way!!
