We’re supporting the #MissingType campaign.
Register to give blood today and help fill in the gaps.
You may have noticed that our As and Os have disappeared. What’s all that about then?! Around the world As, Bs and Os are being dropped in support of the International #MissingType campaign, raising awareness of the importance of giving blood. In England around 200,000 new donors are desperately needed, especially from those whose blood group is O negative or A negative, for example.
- The Wolfburn Inaugural Special Edition auction bottles are up to £1,700 each with just a few hours to go until the hammer claps down at 14:00 BST today!
- After tax, everything raised over the £200 RRP will be donated to Malaria No More UK.
- Every £5 raised is enough to buy, deliver and hang a mosquito net for a family living at risk from malaria in Africa – protecting their children whilst they sleep.
UPDATE: A total of £3,066.66 was raised for Malaria No More UK through the auction!
We’re on the home straight of our Wolfburn Inaugural Special Edition auction and the two available bottles of this brilliant single malt are up to £1,700 each with just a few hours left to go!
The bottle auction runs until 14:00 BST (GMT+1) today and everything raised over the RRP of £200 (net of any applicable VAT) will be donated to Malaria No More UK. This will support the charity’s tremendous work protecting millions of children and their families as well as unlocking funds and leveraging government policy to help bring an end to this preventable and treatable disease. Our previous auction for the Yamazaki Sherry Cask 2016 raised £2,800 for the charity, with these bottles set to top that figure!

We’re splitting our allocation of Wolfburn Inaugural Special Edition single malt whisky between a bottle lottery, an auction (with anything over RRP donated to our nominated charity Malaria No More UK) and a 3cl dram lottery. See the timeline below for when all this is going down.
Back in March we introduced a new solution for limited releases (you can read that post for a lot more information on the ‘why?’). It’s now time to put that into practice once again, this time for the Wolfburn Inaugural Special Edition. Just 875 bottles were produced, with only 100 available in the UK, and the whiskies used were selected by Distillery Manager Shane Fraser from some of the very first casks filled back in early 2013. Some liquid history from the new northernmost distillery on the Scottish mainland!
So, what to do with the 6 bottles – for which there’s sure to be huge demand – that we now have available having received our full allocation and updated our auction system?

Master of Malt 40yo Speyside and #WhiskySanta pick up Trophies at the International Spirits Challenge 2016!
Last night we were bursting with pride as we picked up two massive shiny trophies at the International Spirits Challenge (ISC) 2016 awards dinner. Firstly, our Master of Malt 40 Year Old Speyside was named Best Single Malt Scotch Over 21 Years Old! An absolutely colossal and humbling win, beating hundreds of fantastic whiskies to the prize. Our 50 Year Old Speyside also picked up a Gold medal.
The tasting trophies are shaped like big ‘ol tasting glasses. You could drink award-winning speyside whisky out of them if you were so inclined (and we were).

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.
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.
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).
