#WhiskySanta is back with over £250,000-worth of treats to give away!

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…

WhiskySantaHo ho ho! If you’re lucky, you might just see this message from me!

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.

WhiskySantaWant to wish for Lagavulin 16 Year Old? Give that button a whack!

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). Last week I gave away an Old & Rare Whisky Advent Calendar worth almost £1,000! This week, get your Super Wishes in for a bottle of Probably Speyside’s Finest Distillery 50 Year Old 1967 (cask 12418) – Xtra Old Particular (Douglas Laing), worth £1,250!!!

  1. Jake Longthorne says:

    Like so many giveaways on Twitter this gets ruined by the serial compers from sites like MSE. Is there no way to weed out these freebie hunters?

    1. Sue Price says:

      In response to Jake,.,I don’t think giveaways get ruined by ‘serial compers’. I comp but I also buy from companies that I have won prizes from. Products that I might not otherwise have brought. I love whisky, I love gin, I’ve ordered from master of malt so why should I be weeded out?! I comp to raise money for charity, not just for freebies!
      On another note, great to see #WhiskySanta back again!

      1. Jane Green says:

        I am also what one person may describe as a serial comper, but I am also a consumer, just because I enter comps doesn’t mean I don’t buy things too. In fact I have ordered from Masters Of Malt just at the weekend and the reason I was aware of them was through their competitions.

      2. Pauline Hutchinson says:

        Well said and good on u I have two fisabled children one needs a liver transplant ones blind and people like u raising money are amazing well done ignore those who don’t like it they can easily delete there selfs xx

    2. Gill h says:

      Wish there was a way to weed out moaners like you but hey fill your boots..

    3. Tiny Tim says:

      oh dear..let the Bah Humbug commence.

  2. Frederick Maitland says:

    Very excited to see to visit whisky Santa again, gear up my order of fine Clynelish, order nothing, as in no sign of Santa at all, oh well?!!!

  3. Paul Duke says:

    Great news on this being back again..
    Didn’t win last year but fingers crossed. Would it help me this year if I said I actually live next door to the wizard himself Mr Roy Wood?? Really! I do!!

  4. Tyler says:

    So sad that you can’t win in the US anymore. I did already win a few years back and I am incredibly grateful, but I had a lot of friends trying to win as well. I hope we can order from you again one day!

  5. Julia Brown says:

    Oh dear my poor FB friends. Apparently asking Santa nicely each day can get quite wearing to read. Personally I would be fascinated by my side ranging requests. 😂😂
    I wonder if I can be lucky this year?

  37. Michael Griffin says:

    Don’t be so petty Jake Longthorne. Competitions are run by Companies to attract people to their websites, and for publicity of their products. If the companies are happy with entrants, that is their business. I would be very happy to win a calendar, but this competition has also introduced me to the website from which I will be purchasing in due course

  38. Laura Dinsdale says:

  83. Dmytro Kustov says:

    Не верю в Санту,но в сказки и чудеса верю. И уверен,что мечты сбываются если очень желать….

  84. John Downie says:

    The Whisky Santa is like the end of the rainbow but he can only been seen when there is just the right amount of whisky left in the bottom of the bottle a single malt gives you the best chance, and chances improve with the cask aged ones. I have tried so many times over the years but alas never seen him properly, but I think I have seen just a fleeting glance .

    The only months to see him are November and December but you can give it a go at any time.

  85. If I win it will be a first as I never win anything ever so it would be a really nice treat for my4

  110. Gill Colling says:

    In answer to the complainant about ‘serial compers’ , I found this company through comping. I’m a 24/7 carer who spends her 2 afternoons ‘off’ volunteering, therefore I have no personal income. Comping allows me to occaciosnal have treats for myself and my family. Last year I managed to save enough to treat myself to a nice , relatively inexpensive bottle from Master of Malt, so I am also a customer, albeit with a very tiny budget. This year I cannot afford my annual treat. That’s fine, what I can’t afford I can’t have. But please do not try to ban me from a little fun joining in with #WhiskySanta. I’m not expecting to win, I don’t think I ‘deserve’ to win any more than anyone else. But it’s fun trying!!
