Like a boomerang made out of tinsel and tangible joy, #WhiskySanta has made his grand return, and he’s ready to gift over £250,000-worth of lip-smacking spirits in Master of Malt orders and on social media!
The calendar thing on my mobile telephone/camera/mince pie tracker alerted me to the fact that it’s about time my holibobs came to an end and that I should get off my supernatural, omniscient, festive, heavily-bearded behind. It’s not my behind that’s bearded, obviously. It’s just attached to my body, which is attached to my face, which… Y’know what, never mind. #WhiskySanta is back at MoM Towers and ready to give away hundreds of thousands of pounds worth of whisky, gin and more to Master of Malt’s wonderful customers once again!
I’m very well-rested after my holiday (despite being awoken from a few naps by the MoM folks alerting me to awards coming my way from the likes of Drinks International, The Drinks Business and The Grocer!), and I’m ready to go big this year. Really big. I’ve got over £250,000-worth of booze-based presents to give away with Master of Malt customer orders and on social media! That’s over quarter of a million shiny pound coins, for those of you who prefer to hear about sums of money in fractions. To find out how you could get your hands on some of those goodies, read on…
1. Gifts with orders!
Those Master of Malt folks have also allowed me back onto the Master of Malt site once again, meaning I’m in the perfect place to give away tens of thousands of gifts up until Christmas Eve! Also, one of them heard my request and supplied me with a stereo so I can listen to I Wish It Could Be Christmas Everyday by Wizzard, all day, every day – which will be about 15,844 times. They’ve also made the room soundproof, for some reason…
What will I be giving away with orders, you ask? All sorts of wonderful goodies! There’ll be 30ml sample drams, full bottles, gift vouchers up to £50 and more. I’ll even be picking up the tab for entire orders – you do your Christmas shopping with Master of Malt, and yours truly could give you the whole lot for free!!! When you get to the Master of Malt Order Confirmation page, keep a look out for a fancy message from me. If you’re lucky, you’ll see one offering you something wonderful for free. Click the shiny ‘Yes please!’ button to accept my gift, and it shall be yours! You can click the equally-shiny ‘No thanks’ button if you are something of a Scrooge, and I’ll offer said gift to some other lucky fellow.
2. #WhiskySanta Wishes!
Take a look at the many thousands of tasty drinks on the Master of Malt website, find something amazing you’d love to receive as a Christmas present and wish for it! Simply follow the handy links on the page to wish on Twitter or Facebook to share your wish using #WhiskySanta. You can also wish on Instagram and G+ too. Handy.
In fact, I’ve even figured out how to use the Instagram Stories! I’ll be posting all sorts of fantastic bottles on the Master of Malt Instagram Stories which you can screenshot and post, wishing for them pleasingly swiftly. That way you can get back to doing very important things, like looking at cats pushing things over. The adorable little gits.
I’ll be keeping an eye on this wishing-action (just make sure your posts are set to ‘public’ and contain #WhiskySanta!) and granting wishes all the way up to and even including 24th December! I’ll list all the wishes I’ve grated so far at the bottom of this post, too…
3. Super Wishes!
Like regular wishes, but superer! … What, you need further explanation? Rightio. Through my supernatural, omniscient, festive, heavily-bearded manner, I manage to acquire some particularly amazing bottles. I’m a bit like a magnet to that sort of thing (and to mince pies… and Yule logs… and sherry). Each week, I’ll be letting you know what extra-special Super Wish you can wish for (on top of all your regular wishes). So far I’ve given away an Old & Rare Whisky Advent Calendar worth almost £1,000 and a bottle of Probably Speyside’s Finest Distillery 50 Year Old 1967 (cask 12418) – Xtra Old Particular (Douglas Laing), worth £1,250! This week I’m upping the stakes again – you have until the end of Thursday to get your Super Wishes in for a Craigellachie 31 Year old worth £1,500!!! The lucky wisher who’ll get this incredible bottle under their tree will be announced Friday 23 November.
Looks like I’m going to be busier than ever – and I can’t wait to get stuck in!
18+ only and some exclusions apply, including countries we can ship to. Further T&Cs apply.
