Ginder - Find Your Perfect Junipartner!

by Master of Malt     1. April 2016 07:50

Ginder

Still waiting for a reply from Handsome Clive? Well, you can stop checking your phone every five minutes - the announcement of Ginder has not coincidentally coincided with the 1st of April. We are also sad to announce that Handsome Clive was a fabrication of ours for this ruse. Handsome he may be, real he is not.

There are so many dating apps out there today, increasingly catering for important niches such as dog-owners, farmers, people who wear uniforms (or like uniforms) or those with beards (or who like beards) – you can even find your ‘salad soulmate’ – but what about drinks preferences?

On balance, one’s more epicurean, even sybaritic persuasions and preferences seem a more viable means of finding a match than many of the frivolous criteria mentioned above, especially for readers of this blog. Hence why we’re proud to present Ginder, a brand new app to help you find someone who shares your taste in gin! (Try the beta version on your mobile now!)

Yamazaki Lottery & Auction Roundup raising over £2,800 for Malaria No More UK!

by Master of Malt     21. March 2016 16:00

Allocations Yamazaki

Now that the action is over, it's time to let you know how it all went...

To recap, our allocation of Yamazaki Sherry Cask 2016 was 6 bottles, so we decided to have 4 bottles turned into Drinks by the Dram 3cl samples (drams) with a lottery that would give 90 people the chance to taste it, 1 bottle available through another lottery (with a nice message scribbled on the back to encourage the winner to crack it open), and 1 final unadulterated bottle was auctioned (with everything over the RRP of £200 going to charity). Much more on the 'Why?' can be found in the previous Yamazaki Sherry Cask post: Allocations, limited releases, bastards, speculators and gobshites.

Icons of Whisky Online Retailer

The results of Whisky Magazine's Global Icons of Whisky were revealed last night, and we're absolutely thrilled to announce that following our Rest of the World win, we've now been named Global Online Retailer of the Year 2016!

For our purpose-built website, that we've coded from the ground up and worked hard to continuously improve (there's always more to do - #goodenoughisnt), to have been recognised as the very best online retailer for whisky by the knowledgeable folk at Whisky Magazine in 2012, 2013, 2014 and now 2016 is a simply incredible achievement that really does make us burst with pride.

Allocations, limited releases, bastards, speculators and gobshites

Allocations Yamazaki

Right.

We last talked about this when we knackered up the release of the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection back in November, but, well, there have been quite a lot of comments on the product page we've set up for the Yamazaki Sherry Cask Release (we don’t censor these, remember).

The Return of Johnnie Walker Green Label!

by Jake Mountain     17. February 2016 13:30

Johnnie Walker Green Label

We're delighted to announce that Green Label has returned to the UK and reclaimed its place in the Johnnie Walker range!

First introduced in 2005, in 2012 it was announced that the 15 year old blended malt was to be discontinued, to the disappointment of its many fans (although it was never actually removed from all markets worldwide). In 2015 it was reintroduced in North America on a temporary basis to mark its tenth anniversary, but its long term future still hung in the balance.

We Do Beer Now!

by Master of Malt     12. February 2016 12:00

Beer Master of Malt

That’s right, as you may have noticed we now have hundreds of delicious beers, from classic Trappist ales and Pilsners to craft IPAs, APAs, Porters and more! We've long admired the beer world, and the craft brewing movement in particular, and thought it was high time whisky’s brewed cousin was ‘properly’ represented on the site.

We are Master of Malt, after all…
