Master of Malt Free Shipping

Look, we know that paying for shipping is rubbish. We absolutely hate paying for shipping ourselves, and hate charging people for it. So, rather than merely shake our fists at the sky, we’ve decided to do something about it.

As of today we’re setting off on a mission to eliminate shipping charges completely, and that begins by offering free shipping on literally thousands of lines. Thousands. Thousands of delicious spirits and other treats. Imagine that! Then stop imagining it because it’s a real thing. (If you’re reading this outside of the UK then you’ll see the equivalent of £5 removed from your shipping. Nice.)

Not only that, but if you include any bottle that’s eligible for free shipping to your order, your entire basket will ship free! Huzzah!

United States

Good news everyone… Buying whisky in the USA just got cheaper (and clearer).

As many of you will know, here at MOM we’ve been selling things at the same price in the US and UK for a long time, in both cases incorporating the cost of the local taxes into the price of the whisky so you could always see exactly what you were going to be charged on the product page before you even got to the checkout, without any “hidden extras”.

Of course, there was still the shipping cost to add on, but everyone already knows shipping is a thing, so it’s not exactly a shock when you get to the checkout.

Calais Strike Operation Stack

There are strikes in Calais. You probably know all about it from that television programme ‘The News’, or else read about about it online. It’s not just folk breaking into UK-bound lorries which is the problem though – MyFerryLink workers walked out on Monday, closing the port of Calais. For the last few days Operation Stack has had to turn 30 miles of the M20 into a car park to accommodate all the lorries that haven’t been able to get across to mainland Europe. And it’s just possible that your parcel is in one of these lorries. Or, if you’re placing your order now, that there will be a slight delay.

Master of Malt Gift Vouchers

Vouchers… Vouchers, vouchers, vouchers. They’re the dirty little secret of retailing. They are a little bit of magic. Shops have somehow convinced people to hand over their money in return for something which becomes literally worthless anywhere between 6 months and a couple of years later or whenever you lose it (whichever comes sooner).

In the meantime they get to have your hard-earned money sitting in their bank account earning interest, or financing the operation of their business. And in return for this you, the gift voucher owner, the Lord of the gift voucher manor get… nothing.

*Nothing*. Does that seem right to you? No. Nor us.

Top 5 Whisky Film TV

Something of a rarity this – a joint blog post! Jake and Sam are proud to present our top whisky appearances on the big and small screen.

So, with Blur’s new album still relatively fresh off the press, we give you Whisky & TV! (You know, like Coffee & TV… Geddit?)

Sam: If you’re going to call it that, I’m going to make my own list.

Jake: But…

Sam: Yeah. I’m definitely just doing my own list.

Jake: Fine, after you then. I didn’t want any of your suggestions in my (super-fun-better-than-Sam’s) list anyway.

 

[Jake holds back tears long enough to look a bit sulky.]

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 single malt whisky! 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.

Master Of Malt Single Casks Glass Closures

So, here’s the thing. We fucked up. We got the pricing on our recently released Bruichladdich single casks wrong. To be precise, we accidentally used the figure per litre of pure alcohol instead of the figure per litre of finished liquid in our calculations. The prices of our bottlings are always based on the cost of the liquid, and in this case the costs we used were incorrect. This blog post, for the avoidance of doubt, was written on the naughty step. We took ourselves there.

Master Of Malt Single Casks Glass Closures

You may have seen that we recently launched a couple of single casks that featured our shiny new innovative glass closures, which you can read all about here. We also invited you to give your feedback and one query that arose was whether we were going to sell the closures separately, after all, they’ll fit any of the bottles in our Single Cask Series! We thought this was such a good idea that we should do it immediately. So we did.
