Master of Malt scoops 2018 Global Online Retailer of the Year title!

It is with tremendous pride (and some hysterical over excitement) that we can announce some marvellous news. Tonight was the Whisky Magazine Awards, with the winners of the World Whiskies Awards and Icons of Whisky announced, including the global online retailer title. And guess what? We only went and bloody well won it!

This award means a LOT to us. We absolutely love whisky (obvs) and we really, really care about sharing its delectable tastiness with the world. This is the perfect accolade to sum up our passions, and it’s incredible to get our mitts on the trophy again!

Master of Malt scoops Icons of Whisky ROW Online Retailer award!

Exciting news for a Tuesday – we’re beyond thrilled that Master of Malt has been named Online Retailer of the Year 2018 by Whisky Magazine at its Icons of Whisky Rest of the World stage!

The Icons of Whisky awards take place throughout the year in regional ‘semi-final’-equivalents, ahead of a big global grand final extravaganza.

This is the sixth time in seven years that we’ve been named Icons of Whisky Online Retailer of the Year – Rest of the World by Whisky Magazine – a feat we are super proud of. (We’ve also gone on to claim the global crown five times, in 2012, 2013, 2014, 2016 and 2017. Needless to say, anticipation among the team is reaching fever pitch to see what 2018 may bring!)

Yesterday evening we donned our finery and flocked to Merchant House, where Paragraph Publishing, creator of the World Drinks Awards, presented its brand-spanking-new global title, which will be available quarterly.

Master of Malt win ‘Online Retailer of the Year’ at the World Whiskies Awards 2012

Well – last week was quite a week. Further to staying up unfeasibly late on Tuesday drinking Hot chocolate and Lemonade into the wee hours with the lovely folk at Glenfarclas and Pol Roger, I was invited to judge the World Whiskies Awards on the Wednesday evening (an amazing showing all round, the results of which can be found here). .

After the world whiskies conference was the World Whiskies Awards, whereupon myself and another couple of directors were left at a table, unsupervised by any kind of grown-ups, in the presence of a bottle of Kavalan Solist, and a Batch 30 bottle of Aberlour a’Bunadh. More…
