300,000 Motorhead hangovers

File this under truly strange, because this is such an odd combination. 
Lemmy's poison has always been whiskey, a bottle of Jack Daniels per day to be exact.
However, for some odd reason he has endorsed an Australian Shiraz which has made debut in Sweden in 2010. The 13.5% Motörhead Shiraz has been far more successful than Motörhead's album sales, as it has sold more than 300,000 bottles, but Lemmy warns that "My advice is — approach it with caution. I mean, wine is deceptive, anything can happen."

Motörhead's signature wine has been carefully selected by the hard rock legends and has been described as a wine with a fruity aroma, flavors of vanilla, blackberries, plums, eucalyptus and liquorice, but with soft rounded tannins.

The band recommends drinking it with grilled lamp chops with garlic and rosemary, while listening to anything by Motörhead, from 1980's "Ace Of Spades" to 2010's universally acclaimed "The Wörld Is Yours".

When asked how the idea for Motörhead Shiraz came about, Lemmy said in a recent interview, "Well, the company takes care of the business end and all I have to worry about is the quality. I am not going to sell shit to people, you know. We have a wine as well, that is very good. It was really simple how I got into it. This guy came up and said, 'You know, you could make money if we make this wine.' I said, 'Okay.' I think it is a California wine or it might be Spanish, I don't know. The vodka is Swedish."
