Someone is going to need to do a mince pie run… #WhiskySanta has returned to MoM Towers! He’s ready to get to business and give away loads of gifts to Master of Malt customers in the run-up to the Big Day.

That’s right, enjoyably thoughtful blog preamble – someone is going to have to hop out to the shops for a brace of mince pies, because I am most certainly back! I had a rather lovely time on my hols, but I’m ready and raring to return to giving away hundreds of thousands of pounds of fantastic gifts to Master of Malt customers yet again, all the way up to Christmas Eve!

So, fancy finding out how you could get your hands on some of these yuletide goodies? Let me spin you a yarn…

1. Gifts with orders!

Yes, the folks here at MoM Towers have given me the key to their checkout, so I can give away tens of thousands of gifts up until Christmas Eve! It’s lucky I’m supernatural, omniscient, festive and heavily-bearded, because that certainly sounds like a busy ol’ time, doesn’t it? (The beard helps my productivity as I can use it to store snacks, a bit like a rucksack on my face – I’ve got a few roast potatoes in there right now…)

Fingers crossed you see a little message from me like this one!

Oodles of Master of Malt customers will discover a little note from me (like the one above) at the Master of Malt Order Confirmation page, offering them something wonderful for free. “Like what?” I hear you ask (yes, I heard it. Omniscience, y’know? Can’t turn it off!). I’ll be giving away 30ml sample drams, full bottles, gift vouchers up to £50 and more – I’ll even be picking up the tab for entire orders! Grab your Christmas presents from Master of Malt and I could give you the whole lot for free! You’ll want to click that ‘Yes please!’ button to accept my gift, but if you’re something of a Scrooge, you can click the ‘No thanks’ button and I’ll offer the gift to some other lucky person.

2. #WhiskySanta Wishes!

So, say you were having a little browse of Master of Malt’s festively plump selection of whiskies, gins, rums and… Well, there’s a lot of deliciousness on this website, let’s put it like that. But, say you were having a gander and you saw something that would make you yelp with joy if you found it all wrapped up under the Christmas tree with your name on it. Well, wish for it! Follow the links on the page to share your wish for this treat on Twitter or Facebook using #WhiskySanta, and I very well could grant that wish!

Wishing for Lagavulin 16 Year Old? Ho ho ho, delicious stuff!

You can also wish on Instagram, which I’m making nice and easy by dropping a festive vid with some top picks on Master of Malt’s Insta Story each day. Grab a screenshot and post it to your feed for a chance to win what you land on! Just make sure your posts are set to public, and include #WhiskySanta. My aforementioned omniscience can only do so much against technology. I’ll be granting wishes right up to and including Christmas Eve, and will be keeping track of them at the bottom of this post…

3. Super Wishes!

Some wishes are just a little bit… bigger than others. I like to call these Super Wishes (look, my talent isn’t naming things, it’s giving gifts, OK?!). I’ve got my hands on some incredibly exciting treats, and each week there will be a different awesome goodie you can wish for on top of all your regular wishes. For this week’s Super Wish, I managed to get my hands on a bottle of Bunnahabhain 40 Year Old! Normally this would set you back £1,750, but someone will be getting it absolutely free this week! Make sure you get your wish in before the end of Thursday to be in with a chance!

Bunnahabhain 40 Year Old #WhiskySanta

It’s the magnificent Bunnahabhain 40 Year Old!

And that, dearest chums, is how this will go down. It’s going to be a big ol’ year for me, so I’ll say it again… Someone is going to have to hurry out to the shops for a fresh shipment of mince pies, and it’s not going to be me – I’ve got gifts to give away!


18+ only and some exclusions apply, including countries we can ship to. Further T&Cs apply.
