Malaysia’s Hottest Bloggers was invited to attend the soft-launch of Slosht.com at bakita so over we went for a night of good food, fun and whisky!

Here’s what Slosht.com is all about:

Slosht.com, a group-buying site dedicated to booze, has it’s soft launch with two new deals for September 2011

18 AUGUST 2011, KUALA LUMPURSlosht.com (www.slosht.com), a group-buying website, has launched its website, offering consumers fantastic discounts for drinks at party events across Kuala Lumpur. Slosht uses the power of the party to influence outlets to lower prices on their drinks, and offers these savings back to the consumer.

The concept arose when the founders realised that there were very few offers on alcohol on most group-buying sites. Further investigation revealed why. “We noticed that a lot of outlets find traditional group-buying sites ‘cheapen’ their outlets into bargains. So with Slosht, we’re making one fundamental change to the concept. Instead of offering a discount that lasts months, we offer it only for one night, thus making it into a party, rather than a discount,” said founder, Lau Chak Onn.

Having run in beta with a limited marketing, Slosht offered beta testers an unbeatable RM228 for a bottle of Glen Grant 16 year old Single Malt Whiskey at Bakita KL on the 18th of August, and subsequently sold off 63 bottles, worth almost RM15,000 in two weeks. “Marketing in proper will only start in September, where we already have quite a few more deals lined up to test the market further,” said Chak.

Slosht launched two vodka deals, one for RM140 bottles of SKYY vodka at its public Launch Party Bakita KL on the 9th of September, and the other for RM5 vodka shots at Ecoba Damansara Perdana on the 13th of September 2011.


Free stuff!

If you find a bug, capture a screenshot, and send it together with your name and IC, and other relevant details (such as browser type, OS, and platform) to chak@slosht.com to redeem your offer.

Simply LIKE the Slosht page (www.facebook.com/slosht), and tag the page to any of your friends that look like they’re having a really good time, and you can win bottles!” says Chak.
