The Winner of the Cooley Competition

by Master of Malt     12. August 2010 12:19
Chestibor, you proud, noble beast

Right, our fantastic Cooley Competition is officially over. We’ve drawn a close to the prize draw that some critics have described as "the greatest competition since the Ancient Greeks first started running around and lobbing objects in Olympia." The prize shone like a beacon on our site, attracting the myriad Irish whiskey lovers with promises of a trip to Ireland, personalised bottles of whiskey, wining and dining, two nights in a luxurious hotel and more!More...

Maltstock 2010 – The Whisky Gathering

by Master of Malt     12. July 2010 13:25
Maltstock

In September of last year, Overasselt, a once peaceful Dutch village, was alight with the warmth and revelry of a happy, if slightly raucous bunch of whisky connoisseurs from all over Europe. Drams were raised for an entire weekend filled with masterclasses, tastings, wholesome food and great music. We are, of course, talking about Maltstock!

We’ve posted this to announce that a contingent from Master of Malt will be heading up on Friday 3rd September to take part in this year’s malty madness. We’ve sent a crack team of whisky aficionados, armed to the teeth with Master of Malt bottlings and, naturally, a good selection of our 3cl drams. More...

Cooley Irish Whiskey Competition

by Master of Malt     5. July 2010 14:29

It’s high time for our next competition. As you may know, 2010 marks our 25th year in business and we really are terribly excited about it. Wouldn’t you be? Think about it, 25 years… that’s older than some adults! We thought it might be older than the world’s oldest cat, but it’s not. The world’s oldest cat was Creme Puff, who sadly passed away shortly after her 38th birthday. More...

Ardbeg and Glenmorangie Whisky Samples

by Master of Malt     14. June 2010 11:20

ArdbegFor a huge number of us peat-freaks (yes, we here at Master of Malt include ourselves firmly in this category), Ardbeg whisky is the absolute pinnacle of Islay distilling, and often seen as in a league of its own when it comes to awards and ratings.


Since its acquisition by Glenmorangie PLC in 1997, the Ardbeg Brand has gone from strength to strength, winning awards and plaudits the world over, and garnering a fan-base unlike anything else in the world of whisky. Master of Malt have even heard tell of several devotees with enormous Ardbeg Tattoos covering their backs – what other whisky can lay claim to such unbridled fanaticism?

 

If anything, the huge uplift experienced by Ardbeg since its acquisition has somewhat overshadowed the ‘main event’ of Glenmorangie itself. More...

Whisky Samples from Ian MacLeod, Compass Box and Glengoyne

by Master of Malt     8. June 2010 16:12

 Compass Box Hedonism

The headlines have become rather depressing these days, filled with unscrupulous rogue traders and Brits abroad attempting to stem catastrophic oil spills with sporting goods and general bric-a-brac grade detritus. It’s all a tad bleak, so it’s a good thing you can always count on us to brighten your day with some whisky-related jollity. 

That’s right, more drams! 

Today we are excited to announce we now sell whisky samples from Compass Box and Ian Macleod (including a phenomenal selection from the Glengoyne distillery).More...

A Batch of Ultra Premium Whisky Samples

by Master of Malt     2. June 2010 09:58

 Premium Drams

We made a pact… To boldly offer samples of what no online retailer has ever offered samples of before. We started with some old favourites, and had some pretty exciting stuff on offer (including some show-stopping Glenfarclas Family Casks), but we never had anything quite like this…

We’re proud to announce a fantastic foray into the world of ultra premium spirits. Now you can try 3cl samples of mindboggling whisky that, until now, very few people have had the great privilege to try.More...

 Sample of Whisky The Next Batch of Whisky Samples

The sun is shining, the sky is blue and the birds are just about to start getting on our nerves. But times are good, and after launching Drinks by the Dram – our whisky sample service – the Master of Malt offices have become organized chaos.

The samples are flying off the shelves and we’ve been flooded with emails and phone calls from you all, telling us how much you like them.

We’ve made a solemn pledge to keep adding loads and loads of new samples to the site every day, so this morning we gathered around the board table (sat in a huddle on the lawn) and came up with the day’s batch of whiskies to “dram” (turn into samples). More...
