“I Will Wait” for the Mumford whiskey.
Mumford & Sons, which has already set up its own record label, is dipping into the business of distilling alcohol. According to Grubstreet, the band will create an elite whiskey that will apparently not be sold in stores, but rather hand-delivered by the band members themselves. Keyboard player Ben Lovett tells The Sun, “It’ll happen. It takes a few years to make, so we better get cracking.” According to MTV, whiskey must age for a minimum of three years before it is considered finished.
This announcement came at the same time the band revealed it would be taking a brief break after its album “Babel” and would reconvene for its third album in 2014. The band joins the ranks of many other celebrities with spirit labels.
