Lots of competitions have been and gone, so now all that’s left is to announce the winners. Let’s do this. Here are our January 2022 Master of Malt competition winners.

We love throwing together a good competition. Giving someone the chance to receive a bundle of boozy brilliance or get jetted off somewhere swanky is a real pleasure. This is why we throw a lot of them. That means there are plenty of winners, and we’ve got a whole bunch from 2021 to announce. Who’s ready to hear some names and pop some Champagne?

We’ve had competitions and that means we now have winners. Let’s announce some names of our recent competition winners!

There are several kinds of lovely news to break. Like telling your family and friends you’re pregnant/getting married/ blocked by Piers Morgan on Twitter. Or letting people know that they’ve won the competition you put together. Luckily we’re getting to do the latter today. And there will be more exciting announcements to follow soon… Anyway, let’s put some smiles on faces!

House of Hine, Jarnac

And the winners are… August edition is here. We’ve got plenty of champions to salute and competitions to draw to a close. Let’s get to it.

You know how we do competitions all the time? Yeah, well those competitions all have winners, you see. That tends to be how that process works. 

And we need to announce who they are so they can actually collect their prize and enjoy their moment of triumph. We don’t want the kind distilleries and brands who have teamed up with us getting stood up at the distillery or left with an undelivered bundle of booze because the winner didn’t even know they were victorious, do we?

Today, however, we’re doing things a little differently. We’re announcing several winners in one handy post. Which is a thing we’ll be doing from now on. It’s simpler this way and means I get to do a big celebratory roll call.

Think of it like I’m calling your name up to the stage at the end of A New Hope, only better because, you know, you’re getting VIP trips or booze instead of a dumb medal. Admittedly, it would be better if Princess Leia was giving out the prizes. What a nice lady.

Anyway, here are our champions.

August 2021 Master of Malt competition winners

Congratulations to all our competition winners!

All hail the following:

The winner of a year’s worth of whisky or rum for Father’s Day is… Becky Gill!

The winner of a VIP trip to the Boatyard Distillery is… Jules Riegal!

The winner of the ultimate hamper of Tomatin Whisky is…Sreedharan Vj!

The winner of a bundle of booze from The Glasgow Distillery is… Stephen Fitzgerald!

A VIP trip to one of the country’s most beautiful locations to drink delicious English whisky is about to be on the cards for one lucky person. We have a new competition winner!

How good does a whisky-soaked trip to the Lakes District sound to you right now? Amazing? Us too. Well, one lucky person is about to live the dream. They’ve won our VIP trip to the Lakes Distillery competition.

Taking full advantage of our increasing freedom, today’s victor will head to the beautiful Lakes Distillery with their lucky +1 and a night’s accommodation including breakfast, a tour of the Lakes distillery including access to the whisky maker’s blending studio, a three-course lunch for two in the on-site bistro which and a whisky and chocolate tasting experience. All while enjoying the distiller’s stunning surroundings. Which alpacas roam. Neat, right?

VIP trip to The Lakes Distillery

So, who is our fortunate winner? It’s…

Props to you Wendy for scoring the trip of a lifetime and for those who weren’t so lucky this time, you’re sure to find a new competition worth entering right here.

Every time a competition ends a winner must be announced. Isn’t it exciting? This time somebody is about to discover they’ve been lucky enough to nab a bundle of Sexton Irish Whiskey goodies!

Winner, winner chicken dinner. Somebody’s won one of our signature #BagThisBundle competitions and got themselves a terrific bundle coming their way. It’s full of Sexton Irish whiskey goodies. Although there’s no chicken involved. Sorry, that might have been confusing. 

But the good news is that the victor is going to have so much whiskey and equipment to make a host of delicious Irish whiskey cocktails that they’ll happily supply the chicken themselves. The Sexton has ensured that the bundle includes a bottle of its tasty Single Malt as well as a branded speed pourer, ice stamp, cocktail booklet, and lapel pin. Oh, and two branded slate coasters and six (6!) highball glasses. It’s quite the haul.

Sexton Irish Whiskey

And it’s all heading the way of one lucky individual. Congratulations to…

David Judge!

Enjoy the spoils of your victory sir. For everyone else, there’s plenty of other competitions to enter!

Typically when our competitions come to a close we have the pleasure of announcing just one winner. But not this time. Today we’ve got FIVE winners to announce. Get ready for a champions roll call. 

Our competition with Duppy Share Rum has come to a timely end and so there is just one thing left to do. Grab our celebratory trumpets (you obviously can’t hear them but we like the atmosphere they create) and read the name of our victors out loud to rapturous applause (again, you won’t hear the benefit but we like to have fun here).

Usually, this is quite a short process, as most of our competitions have just one or two winners. This time is different, however. Five separate human people are about to receive a bundle including a bottle of The Duppy Share Caribbean Rum, a bottle of The Duppy Share Spiced Rum, a bottle of Duppy Share Summer Syrup, two 200ml Fevertree White Grape and Apricot soda water, and two 200ml Dash soda water, as well as branded bar blade, pendant, and two cups.

Duppy Share

And so, just as Duppy Share Rum went all out with the prize, today we too have the pleasure of going all out with the announcement. Trumpets at the ready folks. Here are our five winners:

Larysa Khomutova 

Benjamin Ashdown

Jonathan Currie

Rebecca Lewis

Sarah Davies

Congratulations to all of you. Enjoy your epic bounty. For those of you who weren’t so lucky don’t fear, we’ve always got a fantastic new competition to enter…

Remember when we gave you a chance to win lots of amazing Darkness whisky? Well, somebody has done just that. And so now it’s time to announce our winner!

Usually, whenever you win big, it’s customary to pop open a bottle of Champagne of something equally fizzy. But when the reason you’re celebrating is that you have a host of lovely new whisky on its way to you that didn’t cost you a penny, it seems more appropriate to pop open the cork of one of your new bottles. Leave the Champers in the fridge and pour yourself a dram, because a prize like this deserves a truly tasty toast.

Those of you who entered our competition will recall that up for grabs was a bottle of Benriach 7 Year Old Oloroso Cask Finish, a bottle of Irish Single Malt 14 Year Old Oloroso Cask Finish, and a bottle of Darkness 8 Year Old. It’s a selection of gloriously sherried treats, each one a spicy, sweet, and rich whisky that will have you singing Sherry Bomb to the tune of this Runaway’s classic.

Darkness whisky

We hope your prize. We can assure you it’s as good as it looks.

Entry to the competition meant you’ll also have a dram of each to enjoy as well thanks to the delightful new Darkness Tasting Set. This whole thing really was a good idea, wasn’t it? Well, you lucky winner will certainly think so. Speaking of which, that person is…

Cameron Malcolm, from Surrey!

Congrats Cameron, we hope you enjoy your dark and delicious drams. And if you’re somebody who didn’t have lady luck smiling on them this time, be sure to head to our competitions page and see what else you can win!

I know it seems like a lifetime ago now, but if you cast your minds back to January 2021 you may recall that we launched one of those swanky VIP trip competitions we love putting together.

This particular one promised the incredible opportunity to not just visit Speyside’s delightful Benriach Distillery, but enjoy a tasting experience, a tour of Speyside Cooperage, all kinds of delicious food and more. 

VIP trip to Benriach Distillery

Mr Richards will be heading here to enjoy some delicious Scotch whisky and more!

It’s a whisky lover’s paradise and honestly, we’d love to send all of you who entered to enjoy the spoils of this competition. But, there can only be one winner. And that person is…

Mr Nicholas Richards from Rayleigh, Essex!

Huge congratulations to you, Mr Richards. We sincerely hope you enjoy your VIP trip.
