Happy Friday Dram-Teamers!
Before we get to a tasty highlight reel of Tuesday's Tweet Tasting Twitter-nado, a big thank you to those of you that have supported our launch so far.
Day 1 was a great success, with over 200 boxes flying off the virtual shelves across our range of launch specials. A very special mention to our official customer #1, @whiskyshelf, who bagged a bargainous 3-month subscription within seconds of go-live!
But, fear not, if you didn't get a chance to steal your own bargain yet, there are still plenty of great launch specials available.
Right - onto the low-down on our Twitter Tasting! Let's start off with some super-duper stats:
- 26 official tweet tasters, hosted by the inimitable Steve Rush of The Whisky Wire
- Tweet-taster initial tweet-reach of more than 150,000 accounts/people
- More than 2,000,000 (TWO MILLION!) total timeline impressions
- Trended 5th in the UK, beating out both #BigBrother and #Thunder
All in all it was a rip-roaring great night, and we're very grateful to everyone who took part and followed along.
For those of you that missed it, or simply couldn't keep up, here's a mash-tun of highlights from the night itself.
Warmest whisky wishes,
Chris, Greg & James

#TheDramTeam not a lot of Auchentoshan is left on the nose of the three wood – it's all dried fruit, fruit cake and spice. Nice cake, though— Billy Abbott (@cowfish) 7 June 2016
