Receive a Free Riedel Tumbler when you Pay with PayPal

by Master of Malt     25. January 2016 09:30

Robert Burns

Do you happen to enjoy a beautiful drink as well as a beautiful drinking vessel? Well you're very much in luck, as in honour of Burns Night, if you pay for an order on Master of Malt using PayPal between 10:00 and 23:59 GMT today (25th of January 2016), you will receive a free Riedel tumbler worth £9.95 (1 per customer - while stock lasts)!

Our Master of Malt branded Riedel tumblers are just the ticket for enjoying a delicious Whisky, with its fine rim and correct tapered form - it's super-thin too, meaning you can put heat into the whisky if you so wish. They're also very pretty indeed.

Good Enough, Isn't... 2015 in Review

by Master of Malt     6. January 2016 16:30

Whisky Santa

What a year it’s been. It’s always nice to have a bit of an old roundup at about this time - so here we go!

First up, we must acknowledge a huge failure on our part. During December we had what we can only call a catastrophic security compromise. We detected it in early December and worked hard all month to identify the perpetrator and bring the security compromise to a halt, but were unable to remove the threat until Christmas Day. Even then, we were unable to stop the perpetrator - he stopped of his own volition, almost as if he lost interest or had better things to do. #WhiskySanta has a lot to answer for.

A Goodbye from Master of Malt's #WhiskySanta for 2015

by Whisky Santa     25. December 2015 06:00

Whisky Santa

Merry Christmas everyone!

My festive work here is done and I can honestly say that this has been my favourite Christmas ever! I granted 43 wishes this year (one each and every day since 12th November) and also gave away extra gifts to thousands of lucky Master of Malt customers at the checkout! That's a total of well over £25,000 of treats!!!

I received over 24,000 wishes in total and a big thank you to all of you for spreading the good word (#WhiskySanta was delivered to twitter timelines over 21 million times during the period!). Amongst my favourite wishes to grant this year were @daxledbetter's Ardbeg 23 Year Old 1991 (cask 10274) - Directors' Cut (Douglas Laing) and @DavidCraikPhoto's Master of Malt 30 Year Old Speyside Whisky Liqueur on Twitter as well as Jo Lawson's Penderyn Bourbon Cask B227 on Facebook. Fantastic choices!

Kew Organic Gin

by Jake Mountain     16. December 2015 17:30

Kew Gin

Today we'd like to tell you about a new and extremely exciting gin! There are always new gins coming out, of course, but how many of them are made with hand picked botanicals from Kew Gardens?! Kew Organic Gin is certainly something quite special.

Dodd's Gin (the chaps from The London Distillery Company in Battersea) has partnered with the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew to create a brand new organic gin from the aforementioned foraged seasonal Kew flora and other organic botanicals from around the world. The famous gardens span 320 acres, employing 750 staff (250 of which are scientists with many more involved in the internationally important research carried out there) and house a truly extraordinary collection of useful plants and fungi. Understandably, it's been a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2003. Can you dream of a better place to source botanicals?

Ardbeg Ships Free This Christmas!

by Master of Malt     15. December 2015 10:00

Ardbeg

You know how we hate charging for shipping? We want to banish the mere concept of "shipping charges" to the land of wind and ghosts where it can stay. In our continued effort to do so (aside from trying to modify our delivery trebuchet to be able to open portals to windy ghost lands), up until Christmas if you order a bottle of Ardbeg your entire order will get Free Shipping within the UK and £5 off elsewhere!

#WhiskySanta Gives Away Thousands of Gifts at the Checkout!

by Whisky Santa     27. November 2015 13:20

I've used my powers as an omniscient supernatural Christmas being to 'get in' to the Master of Malt checkout. From here I'll be giving away thousands of festive gifts to lucky customers (at least £20,000 worth, in fact!)...

Sorry About Today

by Master of Malt     20. November 2015 17:32

Blue Screen

So you may have noticed the little incident we had this afternoon.

At midday we put the Buffalo Trace Antique Collection up on the site and to much excitement you all came rushing to buy the limited number of bottles available. A few moments later our site went down, preventing a lot of lovely people from purchasing their whisky, for which we are truly sorry. We were down 13 minutes in total, and the lucky few who got on the site right as it recovered snapped up the last few bottles (and we got that wrong earlier too - we thought they’d all been sold before the site went down, but they hadn’t). It's not the customer experience we wanted to provide; we are going to learn from today and improve.
