Burns Night: Traditional vs. Untraditional

by Sam Smith     19. January 2016 17:04

Robert Burns

So. Burns Night. That’s next week. Burns Suppers date back to 1801, with the first one being held by friends of the celebrated Scottish poet Robert Burns. They’ve continued ever since, with people around the world enjoying haggis, poetry and whisky on the 25th of January. When something happens for over 200 years, sometimes people think about trying to do something a bit untraditional - like the year that Monkey Shoulder hosted a Burns night celebrating Montgomery Burns and Jake wrote a blog post mostly about a completely different TV show character.

Whisky Advent Calendar

Last year Drinks by the Dram gave us spirits-and-liqueurs-filled Christmas Crackers and everybody saw that they were good. Very good. Frickin' awesome, in fact! They made Christmas dinner (one of the best things in the world) even better, whilst simultaneously taking care of after-dinner drinks. Thank you Drinks by the Dram.

So, what now for 2015? Dedicated Whisky Crackers, of course! And Premium Whisky Crackers! And Gin Crackers! And the spirits-and-liqueurs-filled Christmas Crackers too, aptly renamed Spirit & Liqueur Crackers! All of the crackers - all available for despatch now!

#WhiskySanta Gives Away Thousands of Gifts at the Checkout!

Whisky Santa

Well, I did say that I might have something else up my immaculately cuffed sleeve this year, and here it is! 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!)...

The Return of Ask #WhiskySanta... He'll grant one wish per day!

Whisky Santa

[Update: He's now giving gifts away at the checkout too!]

Guess who is back... Back once again... #WhiskySanta is back! Tell all your friends and loved ones. Ho ho ho! A bit of the M&M-style wrap for you there. I like to stay current.

That's right, your favourite festive, omniscient, supernatural, heavily-bearded being is back from his holibobs. I may have only had ten months off after last year's festivities (during which I even received a shiny ISC award) but a tinsel-covered alarm clock has gone off somewhere and I'm feeling extremely generous once again! Time to make some lists and check them twice - lists of people using #WhiskySanta, that is - before granting one wish per day for you lucky people for a second year running!

Free Shipping to Commemorate Black Tot Day

by Jake Mountain     24. July 2015 10:00

Black Tot Day Master of Malt

The 31st July 1970 was the day on which the Royal Navy issued the final ever daily rum ration, or daily tot. To commemorate the end of this naval tradition, observed for over three centuries, we're offering Free Shipping* on all orders containing Pusser's or Rumbullion! rums, or indeed the Black Tot Last Consignment, up until midnight (BST) Friday 31st July.

That includes Pusser's 'Gunpowder Proof' Black Label, the new rebranded name (introduced in 2014) for their classic 54.5% British Navy rum. Previously known as Blue Label, that name is now reserved for a brand new 40% offering, the reason being that 40% abv is the maximum strength you can actually send to military bases these days, including naval bases and mess bars. Got all that? Excellent. Feel free to scoot off now and start filling your basket up with delicious rum as well as anything else you fancy free shipping on in the same order, but if you can contain that instinct for just a few moments longer then herein lies a brief history of the tot...

Master of Cocktails - Mutiny on the Bounty

by Ben Ellefsen     26. May 2015 08:55

Master of Cocktails Mutiny On The Bounty

Well greetings cocktail fans. Everyone enjoy their bank-holiday weekend? Ready for some #MasterofCocktails action? This week we're going to make a super-summery drink, based on this baby - Rumbullion! XO 15 Years Old.

If you're going to be joining in with this one, there's a quick step you're going to need to do a day in advance...

We're going to add a single heaped teaspoon of our raw cacao to the coconut water. It's important to do this 24 hours before you make your cocktail as water-extraction (which is what we want here) takes a lot longer than alcohol-based extraction.
