It’s (probably) the spookiest weekend of the year, but before you cover yourself in fake blood and wander around with a plastic hatchet “lodged” in your head, fill that noggin with news from The Nightcap.

Halloween is awkwardly on a Wednesday this year, meaning if you’re not getting spooky on the actual day, you have to make a choice whether to celebrate it this weekend or next weekend. However, since there would be a clash with Bonfire Night (and no one wants to mix pretend spookiness with actual explosions), we expect many of you will be donning your costumes this weekend. Before you do so, we’ve got the low-down on this week’s booze news all here in The Nightcap.

Another work week is coming to a close, which means it’s time to open up a treasure chest of booze news – it’s The Nightcap!

It’s Friday once again, folks. We’re certain many of you will be taking this weekend as a chance to continue working on those intricate Halloween costumes (I’m going to be dressed as a hogshead this year – still lots of coopering and hot glue application to be done). However, we’re also sure that there are a few of you with plenty of space in your plans to swot up on the latest booze news, which is exactly what The Nightcap is here for!

As ever, let’s have a gander at the goings-on with the MoM blog this week. Annie chatted to the folks from the UK’s first alcohol-free brewery and had a nose around Bache-Gabrielsen’s cellars. Henry took a trip down the Old Fashioned memory lane and looked to the future of Irish distillers. Adam wrapped up warm with a selection of toasty tipples perfect for autumnal nights. We also announced the winners of our VIP BenRiach trips – congratulations to the winners once again!

Now on with the news! Although it starts on a sombre note this week.

    The first week of October is almost Oct-OVER. Sorry. That was terrible. Sorry. Anyway, here’s The Nightcap, lots of booze news to be had.

    As it turns out, October is cold. It’s almost like there’s some type of scientific reason to do with how planets move and where stars are, all of which contribute to making the start of October startlingly chilly… Either way, the work week for a lot of folks is drawing to a close, so it’s time to grab a warming tipple and dig into our weekly round-up of news from the drinks world – The Nightcap!

    MoM Towers is usually a cheerful, vibrant place to occupy. However, once the calendar flips over to the October page, things become… A little spooky. The essence of Halloween takes over MoM Towers, imbuing its contents and inhabitants with eerie qualities. Haunting energy takes hold, fear begins to build, until, when we least expect it… Boo! Brand new Master of Malt Dram Club Tasting Sets sneak up behind you like a ghost of a werewolf! Let’s investigate what treats are in store – fingers crossed for no tricks!

    Another shiny eCommerce Awards trophy for Master of Malt!

    We headed up to London last night for the 2018 eCommerce Awards, and came back with the Best Food & Drink eCommerce trophy in our mitts!

    For the third year in a row, we’ve donned our finest, most snappiest garb and headed for the annual eCommerce Awards in London, once again taking place at the London Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square. The evening was hosted by actual wizard Ben Hanlin, so we thought we’d be lucky to escape without being turned into (finely-dressed) frogs. However, we did make it out without being transmogrified, and we made it out with a bloomin’ trophy in our hands – the Best Food & Drink eCommerce trophy to be exact!
