Los Angeles - Mumford & Sons want to make their own whisky.

The folk band - consisting of Marcus Mumford, Ted Dwayne, Country Winston and Ben Lovett - are determined to launch their own brand of the alcoholic spirit, but admit that it won't be around for a while as it takes three years to develop.

Ben was quoted by The Sun newspaper as saying: "It'll happen. It takes a few years to make, so we better get cracking."

The British quartet - who picked up the Album of the Year Grammy for their second record Babel - are already planning their third album and are keen to venture into new territories for their next collection.

'We really want to rap'

Keyboard played Ben added: "We're incredibly excited. Our third album can be anything we want it to be."

The Little Lion Man hitmakers have previously expressed a desire to try their hand at rapping and have even been taking advise from Jay-Z.

Frontman Marcus Mumford explained: "We definitely had a graduation to go through with the sound that we had through [debut] Sigh No More to Babel, and that sound to us feels satisfied.

“And that's a sound we'll always play. The world has been really supportive of those songs, but then there's other sounds we want to make.

"Like, hip-hop. We really want to rap. We've just got so much to say - saying it through a melody doesn't really work for me. We've been talking with Jay-Z about it, you know. It's gonna be a fresh experience for our band."
