#WhiskySanta is back with a Super Wish so special that it will, quite literally, knock your socks off. This week he’s giving away a Lalique decanter of The Macallan M worth £3,300!
Mariah Carey once sang “All I want for Christmas is you”. In my view, it’s the last great Christmas song and one I never get tired of shaking my booty to at the #WhiskySanta Christmas party, but can you imagine if people acted on this song’s sentiments? Just picture the scene. It’s Christmas Day but I haven’t ventured down the chimney laden with boozy goodness because someone said that all they wanted for Christmas was to see a special friend. There would be tears before bedtime.
So to prevent grown-ups crying, I have been busier than ever giving away fine whiskies and other boozes from around the world in thousands of Master of Malt orders and also across social. By harnessing the awesome power of Twitter, Facebook and Instagram (oh, and Google+. Go on then), I have been making your wishes come true. Including, for some very lucky people, Super Wishes!
A Super Wish comes but once a week, and consists of some seriously fancy booze such as last week’s Talisker Bodega Series 40 Year Old (worth £2,750) or Craigellachie 31 Year Old (worth £1,500). For this week’s Super Wish, I have really gone to town (#WhiskySanta’s coming to town, now there’s another great Christmas song) with a whisky so smart that it should be wearing a top hat and have a butler called Sheridan.
The whisky in question is none other than The Macallan M. It’s from the Speyside producer’s 1824 Series of posh whiskies named after the year the distillery was founded. This fabulously rich sherried malt comes in a crystal decanter designed by renowned fashion and luxury goods designer Fabien Baron and crafted by Lalique. How fancy is that?
This would normally set you back £3,300 but if you’ve been good, you might be in with a chance of getting your hands on a bottle for… nothing at all! Not even a satsuma. I’m going to be giving it away. They don’t call me #WhiskySanta for nothing. All you have to do is log on to the world wide web and direct yourself to The Macallan M product page on the Master of Malt website. Press the magic ‘Wish’ button to share your wish on Twitter or Facebook using #WhiskySanta (my hashtag, if you hadn’t worked that one out yet). Or if you prefer, you can do this on Instagram by taking a screenshot of Master of Malt’s Story or one of their posts (you can also wish on G+ if you’re so inclined). You have until the end of Thursday to get your wishes in, so get your ice skates on!
Right, I’m off to finalise the playlist for my Christmas party. One thing is for certain, there’s not going to be any Wonderful Christmastime by Paul bleedin’ McCartney. It does my head in.
Update: Congratulations to @dandj1805, whose wish for a bottle of The Macallan M was granted!
