Greetings, chums. It’s your favourite festive, omniscient, supernatural, heavily-bearded being here, Whisky Santa! Around this time of year, I always start feeling particularly generous. Usually I just give the reindeer some extra carrots and be done with it, but this year, I’m going all out with the presents for drinks fans. I’ve already upgraded 1 in 10 Whisky Advent Calendars to Premium Whisky Advent Calendars, and now, I’m going to grant one wish per day for you lucky people!
What do you want for Christmas? I can make that dream come true, too, a.k.a. for you! Have a look at the Master of Malt site and find yourself a tasty tipple (they’ve even got a snazzy Gift Finder if you want some inspiration). Follow the links on the banner with Father Pugmas on them and Tweet or Facebook your wish using #WhiskySanta.
Let Father Pugmas guide you. But watch out, he might try to guide you to the fridge for treats.
Every day, I’ll be keeping an eye on Twitter and Facebook (I’m very ‘hip’, don’t you know?) for people asking for a pressie from the Master of Malt website using #WhiskySanta. I’ll then pick one wish at random per day to fulfil up to the 24th of December*. After that I’m going on a well earned holiday. Surf’s up, dudes.
Here’s where I’ll be listing all the lucky folks whose wishes have been granted. Congratulations to all the folks below!
