Mumford and Sons’ New Whiskey Will Taste Great with Banjos


There probably isn’t a hipster joke we could make here that you haven’t thought of already, so we’re just gonna keep mum.

According to NME and Grubstreet, everyone’s favorite little lion band has recently confirmed plans to start distilling its own whiskey, probably in a bathtub, probably to be bottled into those old “XXX” stoneware jugs and sold for at least a 50% markup. “It’ll happen,” the band’s keyboard player Ben Lovett reportedly told The Sun, “It takes a few years to make, so we better get cracking.”

No word yet on whether all the ingredients will be locally sourced or if it’ll be available for purchase at Urban Outfitters, but we’re willing to bet that whenever it does come out it’ll pair fairly nicely with a cool bottle of Hanson’s craft beer Mmhops.

Also that it’ll taste exactly how this GIF looks:
