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.

Who wants to win some delicious boozy goodies? It’s competition time and this week we’re giving away River Rock Whisky and more!

Anyone who bottles tasty booze is a friend of ours, as far as we’re concerned. But if you want extra brownie points then being sustainable is a good way to go about that.

Take the folks at River Rock WhiskyNot only does the brand make delicious single malt whisky, but it presents the spirit in a unique ‘wonky’ bottle made with glass that would otherwise go to waste. Every one is different, no two bottles are the same colour and each is free of plastic, with recycled paper, a biodegradable seal and no outer packaging favoured to save on waste. River Rock is also a proud member of 1% for the planet and plants a tree up in Scotland for every bottle sold.

To celebrate this outstanding commitment and to give you the opportunity to taste its signature single malt, we decided to put together another one of our #BagThisBundle competitions. What’s in this collection? We’re glad you asked. Here’s what you stand to win:

River Rock whisky

All this could be yours!

So, how do you enter? Simple. Just do the following:

We’re not even going to ask you if you’d like the chance to win some amazing Darkness whisky. Because we know you would. And lucky for you, we have provided you with that chance.

We’ll tell you something that’s pretty cool about working at MoM Towers. All the time you see these new and delightful booze creations arriving at our doorstep. It could be Pink Rum. Or Macadamia Moonshine. Or incredibly tasty new whisky. The kind that makes you salivate like Homer Simpson.

That’s exactly what’s arrived today in the shape of the new Darkness tasting set. It’s got the classic expression as well as a sumptuous sherried Irish and Scotch single malt to enjoy. And to celebrate, we’ve done something that we think is pretty brilliant. 

Darkness whisky

Look! It’s a delightful new tasting set!

When you buy one (or more) of these sets (or send in a postcard), you’ll be in with the chance to win those exact spirits. But in full bottles. 

Here’s exactly what you stand to win:

  • A 50cl bottle of Benriach 7 Year Old Oloroso Cask Finish
  • A 50cl bottle of Irish Single Malt 14 Year Old Oloroso Cask Finish
  • A 70cl bottle of Darkness 8 Year Old

Told you. That’s a lot of delicious whisky that could be yours without having to do that much at all. Just pick up the tasting set now. That’s it. What a world we live in.

Best of luck everyone!

Darkness whisky

This is Irish single malt whiskey – Darkness style. Which means it’s delicious.

MoM Darkness Competition 2021 open to entrants 18 years and over. Entries accepted from 12:00:01 BST on 13 April to 23:59:59 BST on 04 May 2021. Winners chosen at random after close of competition. Prizes not transferable and cannot be exchanged for cash equivalent. See full T&Cs for details.

An exciting new Macallan whisky bottle lottery is here!

The Macallan Sir Peter Blake: An Estate, A Community and A Distillery has arrived at MoM Towers and we’ve ensured that you’ve got a fair shake at getting your hands on a bottle.

The Macallan is a distillery that loves to release a swanky whisky. When the Speyside producer isn’t breaking records with expressions distilled decades ago, it’s launching new rare bottlings to get us all excited.

One of those recent releases, The Macallan Sir Peter Blake: An Estate, A Community and A Distillery, has found its way onto our site. You might recall hearing about this one in The Nightcap. You see, legendary artist Sir Peter Blake nipped up Speyside way to help create The Anecdotes of Ages Collection. The collaboration was his third with The Macallan in a relationship that has spanned almost four decades. So the whisky giants decided to honour Blake and commemorate his visit to The Macallan Estate with some booze.

The brand says An Estate, A Community, and A Distillery tells the story of some of the “colourful characters from The Macallan’s past and present”. It features a label digitally designed by Sir Peter himself. The Macallan lead whisky maker, Sarah Burgess, has a made dram that’s said to be rich in dried fruits and spices with hints of orange, clove, cracked black pepper and treacle.

The Macallan An Estate, A Community and A Distillery

Swanky new Macallan whisky is here!

It’s lottery time!

It all sounds rather lovely. But this is The Macallan. This means this super fancy bottle is highly desirable. And seeing as we only have 40 bottles available, we’ve decided that a bottle lottery is the best way to sell this spirit. 

Those of you who’ve seen any of our previous lotteries will know we do this because we want to be as fair as possible. As always, our sweary and handy post from 2016 will shed some more light on our policy.

We will approach this lottery the same as we have before. The action will be taking place on the product page. The timeline is below. The bottle will feature the message “I hereby swear not to sell this bottle – but to drink it with my chums. May my taste-buds and olfactory bulb shrivel and die if I should break my word.” For those of you who are lucky enough to win, dispatch will take place on the week beginning 19 April.

The Macallan An Estate, A Community and A Distillery

Head over to the product page and get entering!

An Estate, A Community and A Distillery lottery timeline:

When you’re ready to enter, simply head here. Let’s be 100% clear on this. If you want to get your hands on a bottle, you need to click on this link and go to the product page. Don’t comment on this blog. Don’t try and send us a smoke signal. And definitely do not email Sir Peter Blake. We’re pretty sure he gets his mail via raven anyway. 

Also to note, the clocks change in the UK this weekend. So the times are initially in Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). Then British summer time (BST) officially starts at 1 am on Sunday 28 March. When the clocks go forward an hour to 2 am. Clear? Just nod along. Nobody actually understands how time works. It’s basically made up. Like unicorns or the economy.

Bottle Lottery: Friday 26 March 12:00 – Tuesday 30 March 13:00

Want to #Bag a #Bundle of #Botanist Gin? Then you’re in the right place. And if you enter this competition I’ll promise to never use hashtags like that again. Deal?

Recently we learned about the lovely Botanist Islay Dry Gin, a unique expression made in a whisky distillery using 22 foraged local botanicals. It occurred to us that all this talk would have you licking your lips with the prospect of tasting this London dry-style gin.  

So we thought you’d probably love a chance to get your hands on some of The Botanist Gin. Particularly if it means doing very little indeed. That’s right. It’s competition time. Let’s take a look at what’s up for grabs…

That’s it. As long as you do all that by midnight on Sunday 28 March you’re in it to win it. Easy peasy lemon squeezy. Actually, while I think of it, better make sure you have lemons in, just in case you do win. This gin makes a cracking Bees Knees.

A couple of lucky people will need to grab their party poppers to celebrate the good news: they’ve just won some delicious Pangolin Gin!

The guys at Pangolin Gin do a terrific job of making tasty booze that supports a great cause. You see, 50% of the profits from each bottle are donated to the Born Free Foundation, supporting its international Pangolin conservation projects. The adorably little scaly animals are sadly amongst the most trafficked in the world.

This is why we were delighted to create our latest #BagThisBundle competition, which allowed us to highlight the brand’s mission while spoiling some of our lovely blog readers by giving them tonic water, a bottle of Pangolin Gin and of Pangolin Pink Gin. That’s what we call a win-win. And it’s led to two win-winners. Neat.

Pangolin Gin & Tonic

Some delicious G&Ts await. Just add oranges.

Congratulations to…

Jill Gordon and Miriam Bland!

We hope you love your prize as much as we love pangolins. We’re going to go watch some compilations of them on YouTube now while you make yourself a victory G&T…

It’s winner time, folks. Who’s got their hands on some delicious 1862 pre-bottled cocktails? We reveal all…

We love being the bearer of good news. Like when we get to shout about the arrival of wonderful new booze or tell folks they’ve won the prize from one of our many lovely competitions.

Happily, we’re getting to do the latter today by announcing the winner of our 1826 cocktail competition. Just as a refresher, the prize is four bottled cocktails that provide bar-quality booze in a matter of moments. There’s a Cognac Espresso Martini made with Courvoisier, a Smoky French Martini crafted using Laphroaig whisky as well as an Old Fashioned and a Mint Julep that makes use of the delightful Maker’s Mark bourbon. Oh, and a Maker’s Mark bar spoon, a Courvoisier cocktail shaker and a Laphroaig beanie hat!

The winner of a bundle of 1826 booze is...

All of this is now yours!

And not one, but two lucky winners are about to receive a bundle of each. Who are they? Well, it’s…

Jules Eley and Emma Whiteman!

Congratulations to you both. We hope you and your friends enjoy the booze. Don’t forget, you did promise to share…

Torabhaig Legacy 2017 has arrived and due to high demand, we’ve made the decision to sell the bottles via lottery. Here’s how you can get your hands on one.

The first whisky from Torabhaig Distillery is here and, much like the rest of the whisky world, we are delighted. We even did a whole blog post about itIt’s called Torabhaig Legacy 2017 and it’s a single vintage, single malt Scotch whisky matured in ex-bourbon barrels and bottled at 46% ABV.

But it’s not those details that have got people so excited and ready to throw their money at it. It’s the fact that it’s the inaugural dram from only the second-ever licensed single malt Scotch whisky distillery on the Isle of Skye. That means this release does come with certain realities. Which is that there is a limited supply of bottles and loads and loads of people want it.

Because we want to be as fair as possible, we’ve decided that a bottle lottery is the best way to sell this spirit (for more details we refer you to this sweary and handily post from 2016). We will approach this lottery the same as we have others before, by listing the timeline below, and promising that we will adorn the bottle with the message: “I hereby swear not to sell this bottle – but to drink it with my chums. May my taste-buds and olfactory bulb shrivel and die if I should break my word.”

Now that the ‘what’, ‘why’ and ‘how’ and have been taken care of, let’s get straight to the ‘when’ and ‘where’.

Torabhaig Legacy 2017 is here!

Look, it’s Torabhaig Legacy 2017!

Torabhaig Legacy 2017 lottery timeline:

All of the action is taking place on the Torabhaig Legacy 2017 product page, so to enter you’ll need to make sure you head to the product page and pop in your email address (it’s on the right-hand side, you can’t miss it). All the times are in GMT. Be sure to stick a reminder of them in your phone/on the fridge door/mow them into your lawn to make sure you’re in it to win it. We wish you the best of luck.
