How do we get into the festival spirit at Master of Malt? With a festival of freaking spirits, of course. Summer is served!
The trilbies, the sunglasses, the vague sense that we’ve all missed out on the golden era when the combined cost of tickets and booze didn’t set you back as much as a small family car, they’re all about. This can only mean one thing: festival season!
But why suffer the wristbands, the Portaloos, the killing time at a 1pm act who you suspect doesn’t want to be there any more than you, when you can go to the best festival in town? Our festival. Welcome to Summer is Served! a celebration of sunshine vibes that invites you to camp in the garden, turn on the speakers, and let booze be the main act.
No need to awkwardly squeeze your way to the front row. You’re already here at the MoM Mainstage. Now, marvel at the cracking lineup of spirits ready to perform!

Who on this planet would ever turn down a good Mexican fiesta? Rooster Rojo Blanco Tequila is bringing the party vibes to the festival with its big fun aesthetic and medley of mesmerising flavours, with notes of pepper, florals, and citrus zest, and a classic vegetal bassline weaving their way through a steady beat of agave goodness.
