Scapa Jutland 16 Year Old - HMS Indefatigable Auction!

by Master of Malt     6. June 2016 16:30

Master of Malt Single Cask Series

We are auctioning a one-of-a-kind bottle of Scapa Jutland 16 Year Old named after HMS Indefatigable, to raise funds for the Royal National Lifeboat Institution.

The Scapa distillery have produced a limited edition bottling of their single malt Scotch whisky to mark the centenary of the Battle of Jutland, the largest naval battle of the First World War, with the profits raised to be donated to the Royal National Lifeboat Institution. Only 249 bottles of Scapa Jutland 16 Year Old were produced, and 11 of them were named after ships from the British and German Navies which took part in the battle, including HMS Invincible and HMS Queen Mary. We are auctioning the bottle named after HMS Indefatigable to raise further funds for the RNLI - the auction will begin at 16.30 BST on Monday 6th June and conclude at 18.00 BST on Friday 17th June.

Discounts on Bin-End Beers

by Master of Malt     18. May 2016 11:30

Bin-End Beer

Get up to 50% off beer that's approaching or past its Best Before date on our Bin-Ends page.

Hey, you know how beer has Best Before dates? Well, usually it's still fairly delicious even afterwards. With that in mind, we're going to start selling beers that have passed their Best Before date at a 50% discount as well as selling beers that are within a few weeks of their Best Before date at a 25% discount on our Bin-Ends page.

Let's back up for a second. What exactly is a Best Before date? Unlike Use By dates, Best Before dates are an indicator of quality, not safety. In theory they represent the date after which the manufacturer of a food or drink estimates that its 'premium quality' may start to deteriorate. In practice, with beers, they can be fairly arbitrary (and many beer fans would find bottling dates more helpful). What's certain is that they're not somehow 'good' the day before the Best Before date and then 'bad' immediately after it.

Free Shipping on Glenmorangie!

by Master of Malt     16. May 2016 12:23

Glenmorangie Free Shipping

Purchase any bottle of Glenmorangie before the end of June and get Free Shipping on your *entire* order.

“Well, this does exactly what it says on the tin,” is what we’d be able to say if we let you know about all the cool things that happen on Master of Malt via the medium of tins rather than blogs. However, we don’t. We use blogs. As such, we’d never dream of saying that. However, the simple sentiment of the sentence remains - if you purchase any bottle of Glenmorangie before the end of June, you will get Free Shipping on your entire order (or £5 off shipping if you're outside the UK).

Ginder - Find Your Perfect Junipartner!

by Master of Malt     1. April 2016 07:50

Ginder

Still waiting for a reply from Handsome Clive? Well, you can stop checking your phone every five minutes - the announcement of Ginder has not coincidentally coincided with the 1st of April. We are also sad to announce that Handsome Clive was a fabrication of ours for this ruse. Handsome he may be, real he is not.

There are so many dating apps out there today, increasingly catering for important niches such as dog-owners, farmers, people who wear uniforms (or like uniforms) or those with beards (or who like beards) – you can even find your ‘salad soulmate’ – but what about drinks preferences?

On balance, one’s more epicurean, even sybaritic persuasions and preferences seem a more viable means of finding a match than many of the frivolous criteria mentioned above, especially for readers of this blog. Hence why we’re proud to present Ginder, a brand new app to help you find someone who shares your taste in gin! (Try the beta version on your mobile now!)

Yamazaki Lottery & Auction Roundup raising over £2,800 for Malaria No More UK!

by Master of Malt     21. March 2016 16:00

Allocations Yamazaki

Now that the action is over, it's time to let you know how it all went...

To recap, our allocation of Yamazaki Sherry Cask 2016 was 6 bottles, so we decided to have 4 bottles turned into Drinks by the Dram 3cl samples (drams) with a lottery that would give 90 people the chance to taste it, 1 bottle available through another lottery (with a nice message scribbled on the back to encourage the winner to crack it open), and 1 final unadulterated bottle was auctioned (with everything over the RRP of £200 going to charity). Much more on the 'Why?' can be found in the previous Yamazaki Sherry Cask post: Allocations, limited releases, bastards, speculators and gobshites.

Icons of Whisky Online Retailer

The results of Whisky Magazine's Global Icons of Whisky were revealed last night, and we're absolutely thrilled to announce that following our Rest of the World win, we've now been named Global Online Retailer of the Year 2016!

For our purpose-built website, that we've coded from the ground up and worked hard to continuously improve (there's always more to do - #goodenoughisnt), to have been recognised as the very best online retailer for whisky by the knowledgeable folk at Whisky Magazine in 2012, 2013, 2014 and now 2016 is a simply incredible achievement that really does make us burst with pride.
