Master of Malt harnesses cutting-edge tech for world-first whisky distillery

Master of Malt may be best known as a multi-award-winning spirits retailer, but all that may be about to change as we reveal our plans to use cutting-edge additive processes to build a state-of-the-art whisky distillery and produce truly innovative new whiskies.

*UPDATE: It’s time for you all to know the truth about our big announcement.*

Happy Easter everyone! Or International Egg Day, if you’d prefer!

Now the egg, as the Beastie Boys have taught us, is a symbol of life. This Easter we couldn’t be more delighted to finally breathe life into a project that’s been a dream of ours for many years: our very own whisky distillery. And that’s not all. Allow us to introduce this incredibly exciting new venture through the medium of fancy video…

This incredible project is well under way

Master of Malt-exclusive Redbreast 16 Year Old 2001 Single Cask!

Bear with us while we compose ourselves – the latest Master of Malt exclusive bottling is here and it’s so good it’s got us in a right fluster. Behold: Redbreast 16 Year Old 2001 Single Cask!

Lingo that we like here are MoM Towers: whisky. Irish whiskey. Single pot still. Single cask. Cask strength. It’s like the most wonderful game of word association.

So imagine the joy – nay, near-frenzy – when the fruit of our intrepid spirits buyers’ latest adventure found its way into the office. Redbreast 16 Year Old 2001 Single Cask is a delectably divine single pot still showcase – and it is also a Master of Malt exclusive, which sent the excitement levels well and truly through the roof!

Just hours left to snap up a bargain in our Summer Sale!

All good things must come to an end, so they say (we’re not sure who ‘they’ are either, but supposedly it’s a wise bunch of folk). Our Summer Sale is indeed a Good Thing, with loads of bargains to be snapped up. Here’s the sad part – it’s coming to an end!

If you’re reading this in the northern hemisphere you will appreciate we’re already stretching the term ‘summer’ as far as we can – it’s downright chilly here. Winter is certainly coming. So this is your last chance to bag yourself a bargain, with amazing deals to be had on whisky, rum, gin, Cognac, Tequila, vodka, liqueurs, wine and more!

We’ve slashed our prices by up to 50% on hundreds of products, so if you’re planning an end-of-summer soiree there’s literally no better time to stock up. But be quick! The sale ends at 23:59 BST on Friday 22 September (aka – the autumn equinox).

Read all about it! The Master of Malt blog is to get even more dramtastic

Thirsting for extra spirits awesomeness? Hold on to your hats – the Master of Malt blog is getting set to pack a cask strength punch, writes Kristiane Sherry as she joins the editorial team.
 
Do you remember your first dram? Mine was on board a cruise ship somewhere across the Baltic Sea. I had been sent to report on the notoriously raucous Cinderella Viking Line Whisky Fair – if you’ve not heard of it, picture hundreds of whisky enthusiasts setting sail from Stockholm on board a giant ferry for 24 hours. Now throw in some of the world’s most mouth-watering drams, near-unlimited sampling and the most rambunctious disco to ever hit the northern hemisphere. It’s chaos – and the best kind of fun. But it’s also not the most formal setting in which to sample whisky for the first. time. ever.
