We’re kicking off 2018 with yet another smashing bundle of Master of Malt Dram Club sets! Let’s see what Dram Club members can look forward to this month…

The glossy astronomical sphere that we call home has, against all odds, completed its ostentatious jaunt around the giant ball of hot plasma at the centre of our Solar System once again, ushering in 2018. What occurrences does this year hold for us all? Our fingers are crossed for a definitive answer to the “Were dinosaurs feathery?” debate, and a new fancy hat trend that we can get on board with. With all that mystery ahead of us, how about we clear something up and unveil what Master of Malt Dram Club members will be receiving in their Tasting Sets this month?

Buffalo Trace Antique Collection 2017: Lotteries and Charity Auctions

The enormously popular Buffalo Trace Antique Collection is back for 2017! Once again we’ll be splitting our allocation between a 30ml dram lottery, a bottle lottery, and a charity auction (with profits over RRP donated to Malaria No More UK). After all, we want as many people as possible to taste the good stuff, while doing some good!

To find out when this is all going down, see the timeline below.

As some of you may recall, our ‘first-come-first-serve’ method caused some, erm, drama back in 2015, so last year we decided to implement a brand new system – splitting our entire Buffalo Trace Antique Collection allocation between 30ml drams, bottle lotteries, and charity auctions. That meant hundreds of you had the chance to taste the goods. Because, after all, it exists to be enjoyed!

Excellent news all round – we’re now offering Sunday delivery to mainland UK customers, all for just £2 more than regular next day shipping…

One of the most pertinent first-world problems in existence has to be enduring the tedium of Sunday service, whether it be bus timetables, supermarket opening hours or hairdresser availability (we only want a trim…).

We’ve decided to do our bit to remedy the situation by offering our mainland UK-dwelling customers Sunday delivery for the bargainous price of £8.95. We’ve also reduced our Saturday delivery charge from £9.95 to £8.95 to bring it in line with this new service.

It’s December. Honestly, we’re as surprised as you at how well it sneaked up on us. Let’s have a gander at what Master of Malt Dram Club members will be getting this month (it’s not coal, by the way).

December crept up on us like a cat on its tiptoes this year. We’re not sure if cats technically have toes, let alone tips of toes, but the simile still stands – we are incredibly perplexed at the fact that it is December. We’re not sad about it, by any means – December brings all sorts of goodies, like mince pies, the Tom Hanks classic Big on TV at least four times and a new month of our Dram Club! Let’s see what members will be enjoying with their toast to 2018!

Thanks to one very, very generous customer, we’ve got our hands on a bottle of Bowmore’s 11 year old Fèis Ìle 2017 release, which we’re auctioning to raise lots of marvellous moolah for our chosen charity, Malaria No More UK!

It’s time for another charity auction, folks! But this time round it’s going down a little bit differently. A wonderfully generous Master of Malt customer by the name of Lala donated a *signed* Bowmore Fèis Ìle 2017 bottle for us to auction and raise funds for Malaria No More UK – and we were more than happy to oblige!

    An apology from #WhiskySanta

    Hi Everyone,

    We’re really really sorry to have to be the bearer of bad news, but it seems that WhiskySanta got into the sherry with a little too much gusto yesterday evening and has been a touch over-generous when hitting the “free order” button at the Master of Malt checkout.

    We’re afraid therefore that if you got an order for free within the last 24 hours, you may get an email shortly explaining that it was in error.

    We know how disappointing this is, and we are *incredibly* sorry.  Anyone who wants to cancel their order will, of course, be able to do so.

    We’re going to be offering £10 gift vouchers to anyone caught up in this by way of apology for the mistake, and these will be given whether or not people choose to cancel their orders.

    Normal service will be resumed shortly.

    Last night we were absolutely delighted to be named Online Retailer of the Year at the Digital Entrepreneur Awards for the second year running – so you can imagine our jubilance when moments later we were named Digital Business of the Year Medium – Large!

    It was high-fives and Champagne all round at Plaisterers’ Hall in London last night, and for good reason. A double win at the Digital Entrepreneur Awards (DEAs) is not to be sniffed at – they’re the longest-standing national tech awards in the UK, and they exist to champion outstanding technology businesses across all sectors (not just retail). They’re huge!

    Delve into the Scotch Malt Whisky Society!

    Member or not, you’d be hard-pushed to find a whisky fan that hasn’t eyed the Scotch Malt Whisky Society’s tongue-in-cheek tasting notes and glittering green bottles at one point or another. We hotfooted it to Kaleidoscope London to demystify the independent bottlers’ range…

    The Scotch Malt Whisky Society was established in Edinburgh, Scotland in the early eighties with just one Speyside malt whisky cask, and has since become somewhat of a household name for whisky lovers across the globe. Now – some 34 years on – it has bottled liquid from more than 134 distilleries, and all without naming a single one in the process.

    After a night of frights, here’s a real treat for Master of Malt Dram Club members – this month’s superb drams of whisky, gin and rum.

    Halloween has come and gone – now no one can use that as an excuse for not being excited about the ever-approaching Yuletide festivities! Not just that, Halloween’s passing brings a bounty of yet more delicious treats, as it’s time to see what Master of Malt Dram Club members will be receiving in November! Put away the spooky mask, grab a tasting glass and dive in, folks.
