Everyone’s favourite supernatural, omniscient, festive, heavily-bearded being, #WhiskySanta has delighted fans, followers and customers every Christmas since 2014. He grants ‘wishes’ made across, Instagram, Twitter and Facebook, with drinks lovers able to ask for any product on site. And every day up until Christmas Eve, he makes some of these wishes come true!
Users can also ‘wish’ directly from the Master of Malt site. ‘Wish’ buttons will appear next to every product – and with 10,000 in stock, there’s certainly plenty to ask #WhiskySanta for. Hit the ‘Wish’ button, and a pre-populated Twitter or Facebook post will appear for ease of publishing.
Want to ‘wish’ on Instagram? Check out Master of Malt’s Story, screenshot your bottle of choice, and then post it to your feed with the hashtag #WhiskySanta. The man himself could well grant that wish!
With 2020 not being the year anyone wanted, #WhiskySanta thought it was only appropriate to up his gifting game. In the spirit of spreading festive cheer, Super Wishes are back – with two being given away each week!
A Super Wish is an extra-special, highly sought-after bottling. A new Super Wish will be revealed each Monday and Thursday from 26 November to 21 December. That’s a whopping eight Super Wishes to make this Christmas extra delicious. 2020 Super Wishes start with Woodford Reserve Baccarat, worth £1,150, ramping up to the final Super Wish before Christmas, the Glenfarclas 1958 (cask 2065) Family Cask Autumn 2014 Release, worth over £6,300!
#WhiskySanta doesn’t just take over the Master of Malt social accounts – he takes up residence at the site checkout, too. Lucky shoppers could be surprised with all manner of exciting pressies, from bonus dram and bottle presents to gift vouchers up to £50, and some will even get their entire order for free!
