Master of Malt is a retailer of whisky and other fine spirits with a proud heritage of over 25 years in the whisky world. Known as ‘whisky Evangelists’ in the biz, Master of Malt has painstakingly compiled their vast catalogue of fine single malt scotch whiskies to provide one of the most expansive ranges of fine and rare malts to be found anywhere in the world, and if they don’t have it – they will hunt it down for you.

Master of Malt offers an extensive & ever-expanding range of single malts, blended malts, bourbons, rye whiskies, Japanese whiskies & other delicious drinkables. They offer a sample service dubbed Drinks by the Dram, bringing the whisky tasting room to you, and a Personalized Whisky Bottle service—aka bespoke whisky. This brand is THE go-to place to help you make informed decisions about the whisky you drink, and as Brits themselves you know you’re talking to the right people.

Too much of anything is bad, but too much of good whiskey is barely enough. –Mark Twain

Master of Malt uses a grueling tasting process to select samples to bottle, with as many as 150 different whiskies being tasted before a single cask is selected to bear the brand’s name. Before a whisky is approved for bottling, it will be nosed and tasted blind by each member of their very experienced selection team in isolation, then re-tasted together with details of the cask to hand to enable them benchmark it against other comparable whiskies. Only if they all agree that the whisky is exceptional will they approve it for bottling. That’s excellence in quality and customer service for you.

Drinks by the Dram tasting sets are perfect for the new and curious or the seasoned and wise. From super-peaty, to smooth and mellow; from ultra-rare whiskies to cheap and cheerful everyday drams…it’s an opportunity to taste and experience certain whisky’s that you perhaps would not normally invest in, or pop open for an everyday nightcap. It also mitigates the risk of purchasing something you just might not enjoy.

The Old and Rare Whisky Tasting Set is the ultimate chance (perhaps of a lifetime) to try some of the rarest, oldest and most revered whiskies in the world, including a 1958 Glenfarclas, a 1988 Miyagikyou, Highland Park 41 Year Old 1968, and BenRiach 42 Year Old 1966. Mind-blowing. MSRP £125.95

Master of Malt’s Personalised Whisky is an incredibly unique and distinctive gift for the whisky lover in your life, or just a chance to spice up your own collection with a bespoke bottle similar to your custom tailored suit. You select your bottle of fine Scotch whisky and then add a message of your choice to the label, finishing it off with touches like the mahogany finish presentation box and/or a whisky tasting glass. We recommend a Bob Dylan quote on the Master of Malt 50 Year Old Speyside, from their Secret Bottlings Series…the oldest and rarest whisky from this collection,  a superbly complex and multi-layered single malt from a well-known Speyside distillery.
