We’ve had competitions and that means we now have winners. Let’s announce some names of our recent competition winners!

There are several kinds of lovely news to break. Like telling your family and friends you’re pregnant/getting married/ blocked by Piers Morgan on Twitter. Or letting people know that they’ve won the competition you put together. Luckily we’re getting to do the latter today. And there will be more exciting announcements to follow soon… Anyway, let’s put some smiles on faces!

And the winners are… August edition is here. We’ve got plenty of champions to salute and competitions to draw to a close. Let’s get to it.

You know how we do competitions all the time? Yeah, well those competitions all have winners, you see. That tends to be how that process works. 

And we need to announce who they are so they can actually collect their prize and enjoy their moment of triumph. We don’t want the kind distilleries and brands who have teamed up with us getting stood up at the distillery or left with an undelivered bundle of booze because the winner didn’t even know they were victorious, do we?

Today, however, we’re doing things a little differently. We’re announcing several winners in one handy post. Which is a thing we’ll be doing from now on. It’s simpler this way and means I get to do a big celebratory roll call.

Think of it like I’m calling your name up to the stage at the end of A New Hope, only better because, you know, you’re getting VIP trips or booze instead of a dumb medal. Admittedly, it would be better if Princess Leia was giving out the prizes. What a nice lady.

Anyway, here are our champions.

August 2021 Master of Malt competition winners

Congratulations to all our competition winners!

All hail the following:

The winner of a year’s worth of whisky or rum for Father’s Day is… Becky Gill!

The winner of a VIP trip to the Boatyard Distillery is… Jules Riegal!

The winner of the ultimate hamper of Tomatin Whisky is…Sreedharan Vj!

The winner of a bundle of booze from The Glasgow Distillery is… Stephen Fitzgerald!

Jack Daniel’s Tennessee whiskey has teamed up with Master of Malt to help you get your hands on some delightful prizes. It’s competition time!

Do you know what I imagine you’d all rather be doing right now than working/studying/trying to build a bloody flatpack with a baffling number of seemingly indistinguishable screws? Lounging on a comfy chair in the sun with a tasty drink as some of your favourite music plays in the background. If only there was some way to get a deckchair, Bluetooth speaker, and tasty booze right into your hands with minimum fuss and no cost.

Oh wait, there is! Because we got together with Jack Daniel’s (we presume you’ve heard of them, right?) to create a #BagThisBundle competition that promises all kinds of boozy summer bliss. We can’t help you with the flatpack furniture, though.

Win Jack Daniel’s

Look at all you can win!

Anyway, here’s exactly what you’ll win:

To enter, do the following:

Complete those simple steps and you’re in it to win it. Best of luck!

To celebrate the Tokyo Olympics, we’ve teamed up with the House of Suntory for the chance to win a night and a meal for two at the Nobu Hotel in Portman Square in London. Swanky!

There’s trendy restaurants, and then there’s Nobu. This global chain of restaurants is a by-word for fine Japanese food and celebrity swankiness. After all, one of the principals behind Nobu is Robert de Niro.

Alongside the restaurants, Nobu has branched out into hotels which, as you might imagine, are pretty upmarket too. Wouldn’t it be great to eat at Nobu, spend the night at one of its hotels, and then someone else will pick up the tab?

Well, just such a thing is going to happen to one lucky customer courtesy of the House of Suntory

Here’s that prize in full:

-One night stay at Nobu Hotel London Portman Square, for two people 

-Complimentary set dinner for two people at Nobu Hotel Portman Square restaurant

-Two complimentary cocktails

-One complimentary bottle of sake or wine, at the choice of the prize provider

-Complimentary breakfast for two people

The runner-up will receive a bottle of Roku Gin, Haku Gin or Toki Whisky (depending on what was bought to enter the contest) and six matching glasses. 

Suntory Side Tile

All you have to do is buy one of the following:

Roku Gin 70cl bottle

Haku Vodka 70cl bottle

Toki Whisky 70cl bottle

And you will be automatically entered. You don’t have to do anything else. Just put your feet up and make yourself a Highball. Multiple entries are allowed, the winner and runner-up will be chosen at random, and if you don’t win, then at least you have some delicious Japanese spirits to enjoy.

Good luck!

MoM Suntory Competition 2021 open to entrants 18 years and over. Travel to and from UK hotel not included. Entries accepted from 17:00 02 August to 16:59:59 8 August 2021. Date and travel restrictions apply. Winners chosen at random after close of competition. Postal route available. See full T&Cs for details.

Saturday is National Tequila and to celebrate we’ve got a host of amazing agave-based content to come. We’re kicking things off with a fantastic #BagThisBundle competition with El Rayo Tequila!

We do love a good Tequila here at MoM Towers. Blanco. Reposado. Añejo. Pop any of them in our glass and we’re happy campers. We don’t really need an excuse to indulge in something full of agave goodness, but the fact that it’s National Tequila on Saturday (24 July) means that we’ve got the tasty spirit on our mind.

To mark the occasion, we thought it would be swell to help you get your hands on some seriously delicious Tequila. The kind that makes you stare at your glass in amazement after you’ve taken a sip and say “Wow, that is some seriously delicious Tequila!” This is why we’ve teamed up with the lovely lot at El Rayo Tequila to create a delightful new #BagthisBundle competition. Who wants to win big?

This is a serious haul. El Rayo hasn’t skimped in the goodies. There are three bottles of both its Plata and Reposado Tequila as well as tonic water to make some beautifully refreshing Highball serves. Which should be amazing in this glorious sunshine that has appeared out of nowhere recently. 

In full, here’s the prizes up for grabs:

This could be you very soon…

Do all that by midnight on Sunday 25 July and you’re in it to win it. Best of luck!

Sound the competition klaxon! There’s a new competition out there. This time it’s with Wing Walker Rum and Horse Guards Gin, and you could win a virtual tasting via the magic of Zoom.

One thing that kept us all sane during all those lockdowns, especially over the winter, were virtual drinks parties. Once a week over Zoom, we’d get together for a drink and a natter, and suddenly the world didn’t seem quite so bleak.

We might now be allowed to venture out to meet in real life (careful now!) but the Zoom party isn’t going anywhere. Many brands see it as a great way to communicate with people, and we’re still going to keep them up with our friends who live on the other side of the world/ country/ wrong part of Kent. 

They can be a bit of a bore to organise, however. Wouldn’t it be great, if there was a company who could supply the booze, organise it and provide a cocktail masterclass all for free. Perhaps a company that makes excellent rum and gin…?

Horse Guards Gin/ Wing Walker Rum virtual tasting

Doesn’t this look fun?

Win a virtual cocktail party

Well, wonder no longer because we’re running a competition with the good people behind Horse Guards London Dry Gin and Wing Walker Rum. One lucky MoM customer will win a Zoom cocktail party and get to invite four friends. 

Here’s what the Horse/ WW massive can offer: “We’ll do all the hard work. All you need to do is grab a glass, some ice, and switch on your screen! During this masterclass you’ll be making some amazing tasting cocktails, all under the guidance of our professional mixologist.”

I know what you’re thinking: ‘Surely such a thing must be extremely hard to enter?’

Well, no actually it couldn’t be easier.

Simply buy one of the following through Master of Malt:

Horse Guards London Dry Gin 70cl bottle

Horse Guards Raspberry & Cranberry Pink Gin 70cl bottle

Wing Walker Rum 70cl 

And you’ll be automatically entered. You don’t have to do anything else. Large computers will take care of the rest.

If you’re chosen as the winner, you will receive a two-hour Zoom cocktail party for you and four guests (date TBC) with a cocktail pack for each guest consisting of:

-1 x 70cl bottle of Horse Guards London Dry Gin OR Wing Walker Rum

Ingredients for 3 x rum/gin cocktails 

-Various rum/gin samples (selected and provided by Innovatus Drinks)

PLUS there will be a special guest appearance from England legend, and popular TV personality Phil Tufnell!

Pretty cool, eh? All you need to do is buy one of the bottles above and it could be you and your friends enjoying a virtual cocktail party.

MoM Wing Walker/ Horse Guards Competition 2021 open to entrants 18 years and over. Entries accepted from 12:00:01pm 14 July to 23:59 28 July 2021. Winners chosen at random after close of competition. Postal route available. See full T&Cs for details.

Win a VIP trip to the Kilchoman Distillery on Islay!

Just when you thought we were done, we’re back again. Once more we’re sending two lucky people to Islay, this time in the company of Kilchoman.

In distillery terms, Kilchoman is still something of a new kid on the block. Just 15-and-a-bit years ago it became the first new distillery on Islay for 124 years. But in a short time, it has established a reputation as Islay’s fabulous farm distillery, ensuring the beautiful island on which resides shines through every dram through the use of locally-grown grain malted in their own floor maltings. This is a genuinely small-scale, craft operation that eschews volume and cost in favour of flavour. And if you’ve tasted Kilchoman’s whisky, you’ll know it was worth the effort. 

It’s a distillery that really should be on your bucket list. Luckily, the independent family business has partnered with us to give you a chance to visit and enjoy a number of whisky-based activities to boot. We’re back with another competition and for anyone who loves their Islay whisky, the prize is a dream trip. Let’s break down exactly what you stand to win.

Win a VIP trip to the Kilchoman Distillery on Islay!

Want to head here? Now’s your chance!

What you’ll win

  • Return standard or economy flight travel for 2 people from Glasgow airport to the distillery in Islay, Scotland;
  • Travel from Islay airport to the Kilchoman distillery;
  • Complimentary coffee, complimentary lunch at the visitor centre;
  • Complimentary VIP personal tour;
  • Complimentary warehouse tasting;
  • Complimentary coffee and cake picnic on Machir Bay;
  • Standard accommodation in Islay at the Machrie for 1 night for 2 people (subject to availability and to be arranged by prize provider), including dinner and breakfast;
  • Complimentary round of golf OR spa treatment OR time in the Still House distilling Kilchoman with the team.

It’s your chance to see what makes this distillery so special

How to enter

I’m sure most of you know the drill by now, but for anyone new (welcome, by the way, please stay and check out the many other delights of our blog) all you need to do is purchase a bottle of whisky from the Kilchoman range for a chance to win. There’s no limit on how many bottles you can buy and this method of entry comes with the bonus that you win regardless because, even if you don’t find yourself heading to Islay, you still have some delicious Kilchoman whisky to enjoy!

Best of luck to all of you who enter!

Want to get your hands on delicious whisky, rum, gin, and vodka all at the same time without spending a penny? Now’s your chance thanks to The Glasgow Distillery!

One of the difficult things you have to come to terms with in life is that there are people who are better than you at the things you like doing. What’s truly unbearable, however, is realising that there are some people who are seemingly good at everything. 

You know the types. At school, there was always one kid who was a sporting icon and could pick up any racket/bat/smaller child and become an Olympian at any given moment. These renaissance folk seem to exist to make you feel like even more of a failure when you somehow mess up making a Pot Noodle or something (the instructions could have been clearer, to be fair).

But they have their uses too. Some folks turn their fabulous array of skills into crafts that suit us all. Take the lovely people behind The Glasgow Distillery. They could have simply used their knowledge of how to make tasty gin or whisky and left it at that. Plenty of other producers have done so. 

But the brand decided that it would go the whole hog and produce a multi-award-winning range of whisky, gin, rum, and vodka. Which was really swell of them. As is the fact that they’re teaming up with us to give away one of each. That’s right, it’s another #BagThisBundle competition and there’s all kinds up for grabs this week.

How to enter:

In order to get into the Glasgow groove, you’ll have to write a 1000 word essay on the tragedy of Billy Gilmour’s positive Covid test and… wait, hang on. That’s not it at all. Entry is much simpler. You actually need to…

Just complete those steps by midnight on 28 June and you’ve got a chance of getting your hands on this bundle.
