The premium quality bourbon serves as a testament to both the enduring legacy of Motörhead and the continued craftsmanship of Hillrock Distillery, the latter of which is one of the few "field-to-glass" whiskey producers in the world. Based in historic Hudson Valley, they are the first U.S. distillery since Prohibition to floor malt and handcraft whiskey on site from estate-grown grain. To date, Hillrock has won over 80 gold medals in major competitions and has established an outstanding reputation for premium quality and innovation.
