Master of Malt is a retail seller and independent bottler of Scotch whisky and other alcoholic beverages.

History[edit]

Master of Malt was founded in 1985, originally as a mail order company selling whisky by post.[citation needed]

In 1990, the company opened a retail shop in the spa town of Royal Tunbridge Wells. The Master of Malt website was first launched in 1997, and the business was turned into a solely online retailer when the shop was closed in 1998.

In 2009, the company restructured its business, establishing a new management team and launching a new website.[citation needed]

Since the relaunch, Master of Malt has diversified its business to include a significant number of independent bottlings and a trade retail business.

Own-label products[edit]

As well as being a retailer, Master of Malt releases products carrying its own branding.
