We’ve teamed up once again with our delightful neighbours at Greensand Ridge to give you an incredible chance to win a trip down to the distillery! 

The garden of England is full of delights. There’s castles, vineyards, Canterbury Cathedral, the White Cliffs of Dover and even MoM Towers… Among these Kentish attractions are a growing number of distilleries, such as the wonderful Greensand Ridge, in Shipbourne, just up the road from us. Since it was founded in 2016, the English producer has made quite the array of tasty spirits, from gin, to rum, to brandy and more. But the brand is perhaps best known for creating the UK’s first carbon-neutral distillery, impressively powering its stills and equipment, distillery operations and bottling line by green electricity. Greensand Ridge even won a master classification in green initiatives from the Spirits Business. Green by name, green by nature. And happy to spoil the readers of our blog with another competition!

The delights of Greensand Ridge Distillery await…

What do I win?

Where do we begin? Firstly, you and your eternally grateful plus one will receive two nights accommodation at the Carpenters Arms, a beautiful country pub with a scenic gin terrace (UK travel included). On your first day, you’ll be treated to a tour of the distillery which will be followed by a rum distillation workshop, with a tasting of new make at the end. There will even be a five-litre mini cask for you to take home. You’ll then enjoy a BBQ lunch at the distillery before you enjoy a tasting of the Greensand Ridge range and rums from around the world. Then it’s on to Fuggles, a local bar, for evening beers before returning to the hotel. On day two you’ll have breakfast at The Carpenters Arms and then return home with a complimentary bottle of spirit in addition to your cask of rum.

I want to enter! How do I enter?

It couldn’t be easier. Below is a list of delightful expressions from Greensand Ridge distillery range. All you have to do is buy a bottle from this selection and you’re automagically entered. (For the nitty-gritty details, see the competition terms below.)

We’ve launched a new competition in collaboration with the writers of what is surely the only rock anthem to feature the word ‘parallelogram’. Yep. It’s the legendary Motörhead. We’re not kidding. The actual Motörhead.

You might have noticed that early in the week we had a little chat with drummer Mikkey Dee of Motörhead fame. As you do. Boy did we learn a lot. He told us how the band got involved in the drinks world, what his tipple of choice is when he’s gigging and how Lemmy felt cheated when his Kinder eggs had ready-built toys in them. It’s everything you could ever want from a chat with Mikkey Dee.

We don’t have mega-famous rockstars on the MoM blog every week, as you probably know. There’s a very good reason why Dee made an appearance. It involves one of you lucky individuals reading this blog right now having an incredible bundle of Motörhead goodies turn up at your door. It’s competition time, folks!

Motörhead

Gambling’s for fools. Stick to friendly MoM competitions.

Up for grabs is a Motörhead merch package so good that even Enya fans will be tempted to embrace the world of eardrum crushing rock. Read ’em and weep:

Entry to this competition is ridiculously easy and you’ve got nothing to lose. After all, the pleasure is to play! Here’s how you do it:

That’s it. Good luck!

MoM Competition 2020 open to entrants 18 years and over. Entries accepted from 9th July to 12th July 2020.  Competition exclusive to UK residents. Winners chosen at random after close of competition. Prizes not transferable and cannot be exchanged for cash equivalent. See full T&Cs for details.

#BagThisBundle – Win a bundle from Rebel Yell!

We’re back with another terrific #BagThisBundle; this time, there’s a whole heap of delicious Rebel Yell whisky up for grabs. Would you consider yourself a rule-breaker, a renegade, a rebel?…

We’re back with another terrific #BagThisBundle; this time, there’s a whole heap of delicious Rebel Yell whisky up for grabs.

Would you consider yourself a rule-breaker, a renegade, a rebel? I once walked on a patch grass once despite there being a sign that clearly said ‘Keep off the grass’. I felt terrible. Sometimes embracing the outlaw in you isn’t always the best idea. Unless you make all kinds of delicious bourbon, like Rebel Yell. Then you’ve earned that slice of sass. If Keith Richards is a fan and Billy Idol likes your whiskey so much he wrote a song inspired by the name, you’re doing something right.

If you haven’t tried any of its whiskey, you need to remedy this situation immediately to find out what I mean. Allow us to help you out, by offering you the chance to win a whole load of Rebel Yell whiskey you could enjoy, without spending a penny.

By now you’ve worked out that this is another fantastic MoM competition and will be dying to know what the prize is. Well, it’s the big one. The full Rebel Yell family. Yep, all of its whiskies, plus some quality merch. Here’s the list: 

a bundle from Rebel Yell

Basically you’ll receive a bounty that Keith Richards and Billy Idol would be more than happy to see turn up on their respective doorsteps. That’s how good this prize is. All you need to do now is enter the competition. How? Simple. Just follow these steps:

That was easy, isn’t it? Just complete those steps by midnight on Sunday 21 June, and you’re in with a chance to win!

Our latest competition offers a whisky-dipped VIP trip to the fabulous Tobermory Distillery, the perfect present for Father’s Day…

Among the beautiful colourful houses of Tobermory, you’ll find the Isle of Mull’s only distillery since 1979 and one of the oldest commercial distilleries in Scotland. The wonderful Tobermory Distillery is probably best known for its two delicious and distinctive styles of Scotch whisky: the fruity, non-peated Tobermory and the robust, smoky Ledaig, as well as its recent success with a certain award-winning gin… 

As big whisky fans, we’d all jump at the chance to visit the scenic distillery that sits at the water’s edge of its idyllic Hebridean home. But one lucky person reading this blog and their plus-one will have a chance to do just that. With Father’s Day on the horizon, we think this would make quite the present. Nothing says you love your dear old dad more than a bundle of brilliant booze and a once-in-a-lifetime trip, after all.

VIP trip to Tobermory Distillery

The kind of drinks and view you could be enjoying soon…

“I’m very excited. What exactly do I win? Tell me all the details”.

Well, you win a VIP trip to the Isle of Mull to visit Tobermory Distillery, enjoy the local surroundings and eat and drink all kinds of delicious things. Your transport for the duration of the trip is covered. Your accommodation, likely to be two nights at the Tobermory Hotel (depending on availability), is taken care of. You’ll enjoy lunch and a tour of the local village, as well as dinner for two at £50 per person per night (£200 dinner budget for trip). But best of all, you’ll get a private VIP tour and tasting with either management staff or ambassador and two 70cl bottles of a distillery exclusive Scotch whisky expression. It’s a whisky lover’s dream!

“How do I win?! I want to win!!!”

We’ve made this competition really easy to enter. All you need to do is purchase any qualifying 70cl bottle from the Tobermory distillery range for a chance to win. You can buy as many bottles as you want from the following selection, from the sherry-soaked and sublime, to the peaty and powerful, and even one particularly delicious gin! A selection of expressions from the range also boasts some incredible savings:

You’ll also be entered if you purchase one of the following:

Buy one of the eligible bottles, including the tasty Ledaig 10 Year Old, and you’re in it to win it!
