#BagThisBundle – win a bundle of goodies from El Rayo Tequila!

Saturday is National Tequila and to celebrate we’ve got a host of amazing agave-based content to come. We’re kicking things off with a fantastic #BagThisBundle competition with El Rayo Tequila!

We do love a good Tequila here at MoM Towers. Blanco. Reposado. Añejo. Pop any of them in our glass and we’re happy campers. We don’t really need an excuse to indulge in something full of agave goodness, but the fact that it’s National Tequila on Saturday (24 July) means that we’ve got the tasty spirit on our mind.

To mark the occasion, we thought it would be swell to help you get your hands on some seriously delicious Tequila. The kind that makes you stare at your glass in amazement after you’ve taken a sip and say “Wow, that is some seriously delicious Tequila!” This is why we’ve teamed up with the lovely lot at El Rayo Tequila to create a delightful new #BagthisBundle competition. Who wants to win big?

This is a serious haul. El Rayo hasn’t skimped in the goodies. There are three bottles of both its Plata and Reposado Tequila as well as tonic water to make some beautifully refreshing Highball serves. Which should be amazing in this glorious sunshine that has appeared out of nowhere recently. 

In full, here’s the prizes up for grabs:

This could be you very soon…

If you’re familiar with our #BagThisBundle competitions, you’ll know entry is nice and easy. You just follow these steps: 

Do all that by midnight on Sunday 25 July and you’re in it to win it. Best of luck!

MoM El Rayo Competition 2021 open to entrants 18 years and over. UK shipping only. Entries accepted from 12:00 GMT on 21 July 2021 to 23:59 GMT 25 July 2021.

Sound the competition klaxon! There’s a new competition out there. This time it’s with Wing Walker Rum and Horse Guards Gin, and you could win a virtual tasting via the magic of Zoom.

One thing that kept us all sane during all those lockdowns, especially over the winter, were virtual drinks parties. Once a week over Zoom, we’d get together for a drink and a natter, and suddenly the world didn’t seem quite so bleak.

We might now be allowed to venture out to meet in real life (careful now!) but the Zoom party isn’t going anywhere. Many brands see it as a great way to communicate with people, and we’re still going to keep them up with our friends who live on the other side of the world/ country/ wrong part of Kent. 

They can be a bit of a bore to organise, however. Wouldn’t it be great, if there was a company who could supply the booze, organise it and provide a cocktail masterclass all for free. Perhaps a company that makes excellent rum and gin…?

Horse Guards Gin/ Wing Walker Rum virtual tasting

Doesn’t this look fun?

Win a virtual cocktail party

Well, wonder no longer because we’re running a competition with the good people behind Horse Guards London Dry Gin and Wing Walker Rum. One lucky MoM customer will win a Zoom cocktail party and get to invite four friends. 

Here’s what the Horse/ WW massive can offer: “We’ll do all the hard work. All you need to do is grab a glass, some ice, and switch on your screen! During this masterclass you’ll be making some amazing tasting cocktails, all under the guidance of our professional mixologist.”

I know what you’re thinking: ‘Surely such a thing must be extremely hard to enter?’

Well, no actually it couldn’t be easier.

Simply buy one of the following through Master of Malt:

Horse Guards London Dry Gin 70cl bottle

Horse Guards Raspberry & Cranberry Pink Gin 70cl bottle

Wing Walker Rum 70cl 

And you’ll be automatically entered. You don’t have to do anything else. Large computers will take care of the rest.

If you’re chosen as the winner, you will receive a two-hour Zoom cocktail party for you and four guests (date TBC) with a cocktail pack for each guest consisting of:

-1 x 70cl bottle of Horse Guards London Dry Gin OR Wing Walker Rum

Ingredients for 3 x rum/gin cocktails 

-Various rum/gin samples (selected and provided by Innovatus Drinks)

PLUS there will be a special guest appearance from England legend, and popular TV personality Phil Tufnell!

Pretty cool, eh? All you need to do is buy one of the bottles above and it could be you and your friends enjoying a virtual cocktail party.

MoM Wing Walker/ Horse Guards Competition 2021 open to entrants 18 years and over. Entries accepted from 12:00:01pm 14 July to 23:59 28 July 2021. Winners chosen at random after close of competition. Postal route available. See full T&Cs for details.

Just when you thought we were done, we’re back again. Once more we’re sending two lucky people to Islay, this time in the company of Kilchoman.

In distillery terms, Kilchoman is still something of a new kid on the block. Just 15-and-a-bit years ago it became the first new distillery on Islay for 124 years. But in a short time, it has established a reputation as Islay’s fabulous farm distillery, ensuring the beautiful island on which resides shines through every dram through the use of locally-grown grain malted in their own floor maltings. This is a genuinely small-scale, craft operation that eschews volume and cost in favour of flavour. And if you’ve tasted Kilchoman’s whisky, you’ll know it was worth the effort. 

It’s a distillery that really should be on your bucket list. Luckily, the independent family business has partnered with us to give you a chance to visit and enjoy a number of whisky-based activities to boot. We’re back with another competition and for anyone who loves their Islay whisky, the prize is a dream trip. Let’s break down exactly what you stand to win.

Win a VIP trip to the Kilchoman Distillery on Islay!

Want to head here? Now’s your chance!

What you’ll win

  • Return standard or economy flight travel for 2 people from Glasgow airport to the distillery in Islay, Scotland;
  • Travel from Islay airport to the Kilchoman distillery;
  • Complimentary coffee, complimentary lunch at the visitor centre;
  • Complimentary VIP personal tour;
  • Complimentary warehouse tasting;
  • Complimentary coffee and cake picnic on Machir Bay;
  • Standard accommodation in Islay at the Machrie for 1 night for 2 people (subject to availability and to be arranged by prize provider), including dinner and breakfast;
  • Complimentary round of golf OR spa treatment OR time in the Still House distilling Kilchoman with the team.

It’s your chance to see what makes this distillery so special

How to enter

I’m sure most of you know the drill by now, but for anyone new (welcome, by the way, please stay and check out the many other delights of our blog) all you need to do is purchase a bottle of whisky from the Kilchoman range for a chance to win. There’s no limit on how many bottles you can buy and this method of entry comes with the bonus that you win regardless because, even if you don’t find yourself heading to Islay, you still have some delicious Kilchoman whisky to enjoy!

Best of luck to all of you who enter!

Kilchoman Sanaig Loch Gorm

One of these bottles could win you a trip to the distillery!

Want to get your hands on delicious whisky, rum, gin, and vodka all at the same time without spending a penny? Now’s your chance thanks to The Glasgow Distillery!

One of the difficult things you have to come to terms with in life is that there are people who are better than you at the things you like doing. What’s truly unbearable, however, is realising that there are some people who are seemingly good at everything. 

You know the types. At school, there was always one kid who was a sporting icon and could pick up any racket/bat/smaller child and become an Olympian at any given moment. These renaissance folk seem to exist to make you feel like even more of a failure when you somehow mess up making a Pot Noodle or something (the instructions could have been clearer, to be fair).

But they have their uses too. Some folks turn their fabulous array of skills into crafts that suit us all. Take the lovely people behind The Glasgow Distillery. They could have simply used their knowledge of how to make tasty gin or whisky and left it at that. Plenty of other producers have done so. 

But the brand decided that it would go the whole hog and produce a multi-award-winning range of whisky, gin, rum, and vodka. Which was really swell of them. As is the fact that they’re teaming up with us to give away one of each. That’s right, it’s another #BagThisBundle competition and there’s all kinds up for grabs this week.

We’re giving you and a plus-one the chance to head to Islay and to enjoy some Fèis Ìle 2022 festivities with the wonderful folk at Bunnahabhain Distillery. You don’t want to miss out.

Spending the last two years not attending Fèis Ìle in person has been hard for us whisky lovers. We miss the sights, the sounds, the smells. Frankly, you’ll have to forgive some of us here at MoM Towers who have been experiencing some slight withdrawal symptoms. Jake has taken to standing underneath a sprinkler while blasting Celtic tunes. I’m making travel arrangements for ferries and flights and then cancelling all of them at the last minute. I think I even saw Sam scribbling his own label on a mock TBWC exclusive bottle. It was very clearly bourbon. The poor soul.

There’s only one cure for all of this. We simply must go next year. We have to experience the island, the food, the music, the wilderness and, of course, the whisky. We’re sure you’re of a similar mindset. This is why we came up with a brilliant idea. Why don’t we send a couple of you to the island while the festival is going on behalf of us and our friends over at Bunnahabhain Distillery

That’s right, it’s competition time. And this one is a doozy. We’re jetting you off to Scotland for three nights from 2-5 June 2022 to enjoy an array of activities and boozy delights. And it’s all happening while Fèis Ìle 2022 is taking place (27 May – 4 June). Want to know exactly what you could win? Of course you do. Here’s the list in full:

Win a trip to Fèis Ìle 2022 with Bunnahabhain!

Fancy heading here? Enter now!

The grand prize

-Flights from a UK airport to Scotland, and onward travel to Islay (flights and ferry)
-Accommodation at the cottage at Bowmore from the 2nd to the 5th June 2022 with breakfast included.
-Complimentary evening meal, with a tutored tasting from someone at the distillery
-A morning masterclass with master blender Julieann Fernandez and distillery manager Andrew Brown
-As well as a backstage pass to have a chat with them after the tasting
-Two tickets for the incredibly popular dramming sessions at Warehouse 9
-Two tickets for the Bunnahabhain at Sea boat trip
-Two tickets for one complimentary lunch at the Bunnahabhain Distillery
-A complimentary Fèis Ìle bottling of whisky
-£25 allowance per person per day

It’s worth saying at this point that, if the much-feared does happen and Fèis Ìle is postponed, the dates and details of the trip will be adjusted to match. For full details check the T&Cs, as always.

Win a trip to Fèis Ìle 2022 with Bunnahabhain!

Whisky-soaked adventure awaits!

“How do I enter?! Tell meeeeeee!!!”

Simple. Just purchase a bottle of whisky from this range of Bunnahabhain delights for a chance to win. You can buy as many bottles as you want from the following selection, which includes some great special offers, and even if you don’t win you’ll still have a terrific bottle of whisky to call your own. We do look after you.

You have until 30 June to enter, so don’t hang around. The chance to win a trip of a lifetime doesn’t come around often, so when it does you really want to take it. Best of luck everyone!

MoM Bunnahabhain Competition 2021 open to entrants 18 years and over. Entries accepted from 12:00:01pm 16 June to 23:59 30 June 2021. Date and important travel restrictions apply. Winners chosen at random after close of competition. Postal route available. See full T&Cs for details.

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…

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

#BagthisBundle – win the ultimate hamper of Tomatin Whisky!

If you’re a fan of light, fruity, and tasty whisky then you’ll want to enter our latest competition. A HUGE bundle of goodies is up for grabs: a hamper of  Tomatin whisky!

In the Highlands, you’ll find a site that was once the largest malt whisky distillery in Scotland. Founded in 1897, the once humble Tomatin went through a pretty constant period of expansion through much of the 20th century, going from two stills to four in 1956, four to six in ‘58, then to 11 in ’61, and then in 1974, a further 12 stills were installed. At its height, Tomatin had 23 stills and could produce 10m litres of Scotch whisky per annum.

It was a key player in providing malt whisky for blends during the boom years of the 1960s and ’70s. But when boom inevitably turned into bust Tomatin was almost lost. Thankfully, in 1986 it was saved by Japanese drinks conglomerate Takara Holdings, making it the first Scottish distillery to be wholly owned by a Japanese company. Today Tomatin operates with twelve stills in operation, producing classic sweet, fruity Highland-style Scotch, as well as a small amount of peated whisky as well. 

The distillery has more of a single malt presence now than it ever has had previously and it’s a range really worth exploring. Even Anchorman star Will Ferrell is a fan. And we’d like to help you do that. As an extra incentive, we’ve created a competition that rewards you for purchasing Tomatin whisky by giving you a chance to win a most glorious hamper of goodies. 

A hamper of Tomatin Whisky

If somebody brought this to a picnic with me I’d marry them on the spot

The hamper of Tomatin whisky:

“What is inside the glorious hamper?” we hear you cry. Well, brace yourself, because it’s a heck load of whisky goodies. Ready? Here they are: 

  • Tomatin 30 Year Old
  • Tomatin 36 Year Old
  • Tomatin Decades II
  • Tomatin 2006 Fino Sherry
  • A Tomatin magnet
  • A Tomatin keyring
  • 2 x Tomatin pin badges
  • A Tomatin tote bag
  • 2 x Tomatin Glencairn glasses
  • A Tomatin beanie hat
  • A Tomatin tealight candle holder 
  • A Tomatin jug (to add water to your whisky)
  • Eteaket Tomatin flavoured tea
  • A voucher for a VIP Tour for two people at the Tomatin Distillery (valid for 24 months, entry only, no travel provided)
How to enter:

To be in with a chance of winning, all you need to do is buy any 70cl bottle of Tomatin. Yep. That’s all. Just head here, pick yourself up some whisky (original bottlings by and from Tomatin only, excluding independent bottlings and Cù Bòcan range) and you’re in it to win it. It’s great because a) it’s really easy and b) even if you lose, you still have amazing whisky to enjoy!

The competition closes on 20 June, so don’t hang around. Get entering now! And best of luck.

MoM Tomatin ‘Bag This Bundle’ Competition 2021 open to entrants 18 years and over. Entries close 23:59:59 20 June 2021. Winners chosen at random after close of competition.

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…
