The Monkey Shoulder Ultimate Bartender Challenge

The 2015 Monkey Shoulder Ultimate Bartender Championship Final is being held this Thursday (4th June), and after last year's excitement, we can't wait! This is an annual bartender competition with a difference: they want the best team of three bartenders, with amazing drinks, great service and top chat, who aren't too proud to do the stock take and clean up at the end of the night! This is, quite simply, a Monkey Comp.

And the power to decide the winning team is in your hands! If you can, come along to the final in London for a great night, some top whisky cocktails and to vote for your favourite team.

Tickets are just £10, including four drinks tokens, and we're then able to offer you a discount code for 20% off - Kapow!

The Charity Run of the Bumblebee!

by Master of Malt     5. May 2015 16:00

Charity Bee Run

This bank holiday/Star Wars day weekend saw the Charity Bee Run take place! Wheels that were put in motion back on Glenfarclas 105 Day with our Facebook competition saw a bee's tired limbs still in motion at the end of a 21 mile scurry for charity seventeen days later.

Raising over £1,000 for Ripple Africa's Malawian secondary school scholarships; Andrew Wheelhouse, we salute you! Ably supported by his brother Chris, 'The B Team' got lost a couple of times, travelled through Pratt's Bottom, were nearly cornered by a herd of dairy cows and were forced to stop briefly when star struck by the dog from the Cesar adverts, but ultimately they prevailed! We were delighted to receive them at MoM Towers and to present them with their prize: a hard earned and colossal 3 litre bottle of Glenfarclas 105! We also took these champs for a slap up dinner to recharge their batteries before they buzzed off home again.

I don't think there can be(e) any doubt that Andrew was indeed the most deserving winner of our competition. The money he has raised already will allow nine Malawian children to attend secondary school for an entire year, and if you'd like to help him ensure access to eduction for even more, you can donate to this fantastic cause on Andrew's Givey Page.

Find a Four-Leaf Clover And Win In Our St. Patrick's Day Competition!

St Patrick's Day 2015 Irish Whiskey Tasting Set

If you take a glance up at the sky, you might notice that the rolling blanket of grey clouds that we’ve become acquainted with for the past 6 months is sometimes briefly replaced with a flaming ball of hot plasma. That fact that we can catch a glimpse of it means the cosmic grip of winter is waning and spring is on its way to thaw us out.

This also means that St. Patrick’s Day is almost upon us! To celebrate the Feast of Saint Patrick (and the fact that the Sun hasn't left us and ran off with some other planet like COROT-7b), we’re running a little competition which could result in you getting your hands on some fabulous Irish whiskey!

WINNER of the Exclusive Overeem Bourbon Cask Release Competition

by Master of Malt     19. September 2014 17:00

Old Hobart Overeem casks

For the last month we've been running a cracking little competition offering the chance for one lucky winner to join a select panel of whisky experts later this month that will decide which bourbon cask will be bottled as the first ever bourbon matured Overeem Tasmanian whisky! The selected whisky will be a UK exclusive, a release of just 50 bottles at 60% abv, with the winner also bagging themselves a bottle - a personalised one at that!

How would this lucky winner be chosen? Well, not by luck at all actually, but by writing the best tasting note for Overeem Sherry Cask 43% (with two runners up winning bottles of this popular expression).

Exclusive Overeem Bourbon Cask Release Competition

by Master of Malt     21. August 2014 12:36

Old Hobart Overeem casks

WIN a place on the panel to choose which cask gets bottled as well as receiving a special personalised bottle of the resulting limited edition release!

A proper competition this, for all you malt fans out there. The marvellous folk at the Old Hobart distillery in Tasmania are wonderful whisky makers, but are sometimes a little indecisive. Alongside his truly excellent Sherry and port cask releases, Head Distiller and distillery owner Casey Overeem has - for the first time - filled a small number of specially re-sized bourbon casks with his wonderful single malt! The trouble is they all taste superb, so he's having a little trouble to decide which one to release first in the UK... that's where you come in.

Winner of The Gleneagles Competition!

by Sam Smith     6. November 2013 10:57

Dapper dolphin

There are people who are born winners. Other people become winners. Some people are born as dolphins, which means that they aren’t actually people at all. We’re not concerned about dolphins today (although we should all help save them from extinction!).

No, today it’s all about the lucky winner of our rather marvellous Gleneagles competition!

Ballantine's 12 Year Old Trip - Part one

by Ben Ellefsen     17. September 2013 15:23

Ballantines selection

Okay. I’ll start here with an apology. This is possibly the most overdue blog post in the history of man (except my review of Dead Rabbit NYC, that’s more overdue). Things have happened since then, y’see. Things involving setting up new and exciting drinks distribution companies, developing a whole mess of new products, and the introduction of a mini sleep-terrorist into my house. These things have precluded me from doing what I should have done ages ago. The last one has also probably precluded me from spelling any words in this post correctly or being sure if my hands are, in fact, my hands. If you’re reading this, Ballantine’s-press-folk, you can have one free shot next time I see you, subject to the normal rules of course*.

C is for... Cutty Sark!

Cutty Sark

That’s right, folks. Those crafty chaps from Caskstrength announced today their new bottling! Due to launch on 25 March 2013, the third instalment in the much-celebrated Alphabet Series is indeed a Cutty Sark, Neil and Joel undertook the herculean task of blending their own whisky, and the result is sure to be interesting!
