ISC Trophies for our 40 Year Old Speyside & #WhiskySanta!

Master of Malt #WhiskySanta ISC

Master of Malt 40yo Speyside and #WhiskySanta pick up Trophies at the International Spirits Challenge 2016!

Last night we were bursting with pride as we picked up two massive shiny trophies at the International Spirits Challenge (ISC) 2016 awards dinner. Firstly, our Master of Malt 40 Year Old Speyside was named Best Single Malt Scotch Over 21 Years Old! An absolutely colossal and humbling win, beating hundreds of fantastic whiskies to the prize. Our 50 Year Old Speyside also picked up a Gold medal.

The tasting trophies are shaped like big 'ol tasting glasses. You could drink award-winning whisky out of them if you were so inclined (and we were).

'The Exceptional' Whiskies Now Available!

by Jake Mountain     27. May 2016 14:30

The Exceptional whisky

The Exceptional Malt, Grain and Blend from Don Sutcliffe and former Managing Director of The Macallan Willie Phillips launch in the UK.

Available on Master of Malt today are three new Scotch whiskies from American independent bottler Sutcliffe & Son, brought to the UK by Number One Drinks. Called 'The Exceptional', the chaps behind them are none other than Willie Phillips, who was Managing Director of The Macallan between 1978 and 1996 (crucial years for the development of this famous single malt, of course) and Craft Distillers Managing Director Don Sutcliffe who worked with him to grow The Macallan in the US back in the late 1980s. Friends for 25 years, The Exceptional is something of a passion project for them both, working also with Master Blender Bill Arthur.

by Master of Malt     16. May 2016 12:23

Glenmorangie Free Shipping

Purchase any bottle of Glenmorangie before the end of June and get Free Shipping on your *entire* order.

“Well, this does exactly what it says on the tin,” is what we’d be able to say if we let you know about all the cool things that happen on Master of Malt via the medium of tins rather than blogs. However, we don’t. We use blogs. As such, we’d never dream of saying that. However, the simple sentiment of the sentence remains - if you purchase any bottle of Glenmorangie before the end of June, you will get Free Shipping on your entire order (or £5 off shipping if you're outside the UK).

Pikesville 6 Year Old 110 Proof Straight Rye is Back in Stock!

by Sam Smith     29. April 2016 15:30

Pikesville 6 Year Old Rye

Cast your mind back to November of last year and you might just remember seeing a fantastic rye whiskey come through our doors - the Pikesville 6 Year Old 100 Proof Straight Rye. Not only was it rather yummy and a Master of Malt exclusive, it also made an entertaining whoosh-ing noise as it flew right back out the door in a very swift manner. This might have had something to do with Jim Murray naming it his Second Finest Whisky in the World shortly after it arrived (and it's since been crowned World's Best Rye Whisky at the World Whiskies Awards 2016)…

If it whoosh-ed past you the first time, you’ll be happy to know that Pikesville 6 Year Old 100 Proof is back in stock! Go a get yourself a bottle now! (Update: Aaaaaand it's gone. Again.)
