It’s blowing our own trumpet time… again. Yes, Master of Malt has won two more massive awards in the last couple of months at the Icons of Whisky & Icons of Gin. Let the trumpets sound!

We’ve been winning awards left, right and centre recently. Back in February we reported on our retailer and indie bottler gongs from the Drinks Retailing Awards and the first round of the Icons of Whisky. Now there’s more. At the end of last month, Whisky Magazine named Master of Malt the Global Online Retailer of the Year in its annual Icons of Whisky awards. The prize acknowledged us stocking thousands of whiskies across a variety of tastes and styles, from old and rare spirits, to our flash sales and 30ml drams allowing for all budgets to get involved. The judges also commended our informal, educational product descriptions, blog features, campaigns, and creative social media content, before being all lovely about the overhaul we did on our site in the last year to improve customer experience. We’re pleased it’s been noticed.

That’s the actual trophy. No expense spared.

But that’s not all! Our dinner jackets and cocktails dresses had another outing the month before when we attended Gin Magazine’s Icons of Gin 2023, and snaffled the gong for Online Retailer of the Year there too! This means that Master of Malt is officially the best place to buy both whisky and gin online. But you knew that already.

Furthermore fresh on the heels from being Highly Commended in the Spirits Buyer category at the Icons of Whisky, our own Julie Trewren won the top prize, Spirits Buyer of the Year at the Icons of Gin awards. Congratulations to Julie and her awesome team who continue to bring you all your favourite spirits.
