Mark the diaries, folks! Team Master of Malt is taking to Instagram for a series of live tastings. And we want you to join us!

Here at MoM Towers, there’s little we love more than exploring a flight of delicious spirits. But in the current challenging times, it’s not like we can saunter off to a good bar with some good friends and treat ourselves to a dram or three of something new. But! We can harness the power of Instagram Live and share some of our favourite tipples – whiskies, gins, rums, and more. So that’s what we’re doing on Monday and Wednesday evenings!

Here’s the crucial info. It is all going down over on our Instagram page, so make sure you’re following @masterofmalt. Unless otherwise specified, we’ll hit that Live button at 7:30pm. We’ll also pop a handy countdown timer up in our Story in the run-up, and you can tap that to set a reminder too. Watch out for the notification, or just head over to our Story at the specified hour where you’ll find us ready with the drinks (sometimes with a guest..!).

Here’s what we’ve got coming up. We’ll update this page as soon as we’ve got news of more tastings, so do keep checking back. Grab yourself a tasting set, drams or bottles, and play along!

Important: We absolutely encourage viewers to join in, ask questions, share tasting notes and generally get involved. But we will not hesitate to report accounts making inappropriate or abusive comments to Instagram.
