Whisky Santa's Whisky Advent Day 7: Glenfarclas 10 Year Old

by Whisky Santa     7. December 2014 00:00

Glenfarclas 10 Year Old

Excited to peek behind the seventh window of the Whisky Advent Calendar? Well now's the time, as it's Day 7! Behind that little window lies a classic Sherried expression from a family-owned independent Scottish distillery - it's a dram of Glenfarclas 10 Year Old!

Six generations of the Grant family have helped run the distillery, and next year marks the 150th anniversary of John Grant buying Glenfarclas back in 1865. #WhiskySanta Towers has been family-owned for many decades too you know, but the Grant family have managed it all without omniscience and flying reindeer. Bloody impressive! Not to say I'm a slouch mind, just watch me move on the 24th!

Whisky Santa's Whisky Advent Day 5: Bowmore 12 Year Old

by Whisky Santa     5. December 2014 00:00

Bowmore 12 Year Old

Four delicious days down, and on 5th December the Whisky Advent Calendar giveth single malt from Bogh Mòr! Bowmore distillery's 12 year old single malt to be precise.

They say that the devil last visited Bowmore in 1837, and that the people of the town of Bowmore scared him off. I'm generally more bothered by the Grinch though personally. If you happen to see him about, make sure you tell him to do one too, won't you? He'll take a hint one of these days. Other than that, I simply encourage you to sit back and enjoy your dram of delicious peated Scotch from Islay.

#WhiskySanta Gives Away The World's Finest Whisky

Whisky Santa Pug Yamazaki Sherry 2013

Since I began granting one Christmas wish per day, there's been one product in particular that's been rather popular on your wishlists. Some chap in a panama hat with fluorescent eyes said it was rather good or something. Not much call for panama hats at the North Pole, you know. Still, if there's one thing I've learned travelling all around the globe every year it's that it takes all sorts!

Drinks by the Dram Christmas Crackers!

Drinks by the Dram Christmas Crackers

Before we get started, yes, we know. We’re banging on about Christmas and it’s not even Halloween yet. Most of us at MoM Towers are only just putting the finishing touches to our costumes - this year I’m changing it up from my usual Beastie Boys ‘Sabotage’ cop and going as a horse with Jake. He’s kindly volunteered to be the back half (but he doesn't know that yet).

However, the Drinks by the Dram Christmas Crackers were recently put up for pre-order and now we can’t but feel all Christmassy and whatnot. Just look at these handsome little rascals! Don’t expect to find any tiny rulers, giant plastic paper-clips or ridiculously easy puzzles here, oh no. These Christmas Crackers are filled with award-winning spirits and liqueurs!

Bearded Cat

So it seems there was a Caption Competition announced a couple days ago and we need to declare some winners. I was out of the office on the day it was announced, so imagine my surprise when I returned to find a picture of me training for my upcoming Broadway show CATS (in Ireland) had been used for the competition! I knew I should never have become friends with Jake on Facebook.

Nevertheless, we received a bunch of entries and (using a very scientific method which definitely was not just us chuckling away at our desks) decided on whom shall be receiving each of the three Drinks by the Dram Irish Whiskey Tasting Sets for St. Patrick’s Day!

The Final Winner of Our Premium Whisky Advent Calendar Competition

by Sam Smith     28. November 2013 16:36

Forrest Gump and the Premium Whisky Advent Calendar

As the philosopher Tom Hanks always said that his Momma always said, “Life is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re gonna get.”

The final winner of our Premium Whisky Advent Calendar competition didn’t know that they were going to receive one of the most supreme advent calendars in existence when they bought a tasting set. It gave them a chance, but the future is tough to see (not for philosophers like Tom Hanks though. Philosophers can see in to the future, right? Or is that wizards? Either way, Tom Hanks can see into the future. And cast spells.).

Rum, Cognac & Tequila Advent Calendars!!!

Drinks by the Dram Rum, Cognac and Tequila Advent Calendars

Once upon a beginning, the folks of the world drew chalk lines on their doors to physically count down the first 24 days of December. These days that seems a rather sad thought, more reminiscent of a prisoner counting the days they've been locked up than a celebration of the festive season. Pretty miserable really. (That is, unless you're lucky enough to share a cell with comedy legend Ronnie Barker!) It was some time before some bright spark decided that using candles would be rather less bleak. I mean, candles, they're okay aren't they?

With a calendar being given away every week in November to lucky winners who purchased Tasting Sets, there should be more winners! We do apologise.
