Master of Malt named IWSC Online Retailer of the Year!

IWSC Online Retailer Trophy

We’re beyond thrilled to announce that we’ve been awarded the Online Retailer of the Year Trophy at the International Wine & Spirit Competition for the second time in three years!

Just days after our last pieces of exciting awards news from the DEAs and Icons of Whisky – and capping off a truly extraordinary year – last night we received the Online Retailer of the Year Trophy at the 47th annual International Wine & Spirit Competition Awards Banquet.

This is the second time we’ve received this extremely prestigious IWSC title in the trophy’s three year history, having picked up the inaugural online retailer award in 2014. To be recognised once again by such a well-respected authority across all of wine and spirits is an incedible, slightly dizzying acheivement, and one that obviously makes us burst with pride!

Two More Online Retailer of the Year Awards for Master of Malt!

Master of Malt Digital Entrepreneur Awards

We’ve been named Online Retailer of the Year at the Digital Entrepreneur Awards 2016, and also Online Retailer of the Year – Rest of World at the Icons of Whisky for the fifth time in six years!

It’s already been an extraordinary year for awards, beginning back in March when we were named Global Online Retailer of the Year at Whisky Mag’s Icons of Whisky 2016. The Global Icons works by taking the winners from America, Scotland and Rest of World regions through to a grand final, and as we head towards the end the year, the 2017 Rest of the World results have now been revealed! We’re absolutely delighted to announce that we’ve been named Online Retailer of the Year – Rest of World by Whisky Mag for the fifth time in six years (going on to claim the global crown the previous four times in 2012, 2013 and 2014 as well as 2016). It’s a record we’re naturally *immensely* proud of, and which means a lot to all of us here.

Master of Malt #WhiskySanta ISC

Master of Malt 40yo Speyside and #WhiskySanta pick up Trophies at the International Spirits Challenge 2016!

Last night we were bursting with pride as we picked up two massive shiny trophies at the International Spirits Challenge (ISC) 2016 awards dinner. Firstly, our Master of Malt 40 Year Old Speyside was named Best Single Malt Scotch Over 21 Years Old! An absolutely colossal and humbling win, beating hundreds of fantastic whiskies to the prize. Our 50 Year Old Speyside also picked up a Gold medal.

The tasting trophies are shaped like big ‘ol tasting glasses. You could drink award-winning speyside whisky out of them if you were so inclined (and we were).
