    Master of Malt Dram Club – May 2018

    May we announce that we have arrived upon the month of May, and this may bring a wealth of new Master of Malt Dram Club tasting sets? We may do such a thing.

    If you couldn’t guess from the extremely high-level wordplay within that little preamble, it is now May. This is exciting for numerous reasons, including the multiple Bank Holidays for folks here in the UK, an excuse to make Star Wars puns on the 4th of May, Cinco de Mayo, Eurovision, and a whole bunch of new Master of Malt Dram Club tasting sets! Let’s see what our Dram Club members can look forward to this month…

    The Nightcap: 20 April

    What a week! Nothing ever stands still in the world of booze, but this has been a particularly exciting seven days. Buckle up, folks – The Nightcap is here!

    As always, before proceeding it is imperative that we recall the week that was. On Sunday, we celebrated the wonder that is Glenfarclas 105 Day (did you crack open a dram to mark the 105th day of the year?). Then, on Monday, news reached MoM Towers that Diageo was investing a humongous £150 million in whisky tourism, taking in visitor centres across Scotland and even a fancy new Johnnie Walker experience. We can’t wait.

    Shipping to the USA

    Ok, there’s no way to sugar coat this, so we’re just going to come right out and say it – as of today, we’re stopping delivery to the US.

    We’d love to be able to have some idea how and if this is going to change in the future, but we just don’t want to give any false hope.
    Suffice to say, 2 things are true:

  • You guys in the USA are extremely important to us, and we are *incredibly* sorry about this.
  • We are working very hard on ways to be able to provide services again with the help of wholesale and retail partners based in-country.
    Thank you for all your incredible support over the years.
