Motörhead Ace of Spades Straight Bourbon Whiskey Released to Fans Across the United States


Pewaukee, Wisconsin. РBrew Pipeline has launched Moțrhead Ace of Spades Straight Bourbon, its latest collaboration with iconic rock band Moțrhead.

Bourbon first made its debut in August in limited edition Sturgis bottles around the rally. Due to general demand, Brew Pipeline is now processing orders across the United States. This includes Brew Pipeline distribution in California and Rhode Island as well as online orders through Craft Shack, shipped to 41 states.

“We are honored to develop this fantastic American bourbon whiskey in concert with Motörhead,” said Joel Kath, founder of Proof Artisan Distillers. “Following the comments and comments of the group, we aimed for a strong tasting profile. With a rich rye puree, four years of aging, a slow progressive dilution and a final conditioning with filtration without cooling, we are extremely proud of the result.

Aged four years in charred oak barrels, bourbon is a blend of 60% corn, 36% rye and 4% barley. With hints of vanilla on the nose, this bourbon has a balanced combination of spicy and sweet flavors with cinnamon, rye, black pepper and mint. Full-bodied and complex, it tastes of oak, caramelized brown sugar, tobacco and cocoa with a strong cinnamon finish. Motörhead Approved Bourbon is produced and bottled by the award winning small batch distillery, Proof Artisan Distillers in Fargo, ND.

Product specifications include:

  • Suggested retail price of $ 49.99 to $ 60.99
  • 750 ml bottles
  • 90 proof, 45% ABV

Following the success of Motörhead Röad Crew, an American Pale Ale released last fall, Brew Pipeline has once again partnered with Moto¨rhead and Global Merchandising Services to bring this spirit to life. Group members Mikkey Dee and Phil Campbell helped develop the bourbon flavor profile with frequent tastings throughout the process. Nominated for their hit album Ace of Spades the bottle features artwork from the album cover as well as the signatures of band members Lemmy Kilmister, Phil Campbell and Mikkey Dee.

About Motörhead

An English rock group formed in June 1975 by bassist, singer and songwriter Ian Fraser “Lemmy” Kilmister, Motörhead quickly established itself on the British punk and heavy metal scenes. Although they changed their line-up several times, Motörhead never compromised or changed their unique and rabid sound, which saw the band and their music become a lifestyle for many people of all genres, whether they are rockers, punks or alternative. As a power trio, they enjoyed particular success in the early 1980s with several hit singles in the UK Top 40. The albums Overpowered, Bomber, Ace of Spades and especially No sleep until Hammersmith cemented Motörhead’s reputation as a leading rock band. The group is ranked number 26 out of VH1’s 100 Greatest Hard Rock Artists. Motörhead has released 22 studio albums, 13 live recordings, 12 compilation albums and four EPs over a 45-year career. Motörhead’s legacy (and lifestyle) lives on through their music and loyal fans, with the band earning a nomination for the 2020 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
