Compass Box are celebrating their 10th anniversary, so we’ve teamed up with them to bring you an incredible competition.
We’re offering two of you the chance to visit the Compass Box London HQ, where you will enjoy the ultimate Compass Box experience.
All you have to do to enter is buy any bottle of Compass Box whisky from our site, but hurry, because there are only 250 chances to enter!
The itinerary is as follows:
11:30am – Arrive at the Compass Box offices where you will be greeted with a welcome glass of champagne.
12:00pm – Light lunch, Compass Box-style!
1.15pm – Presentation of the Compass Box philosophy with a tasting of the signature range, followed by some very exclusive, limited edition treats (including the ultra-rare Hedonism Maximus!).
2.15pm – Blending School! John Glaser teaches a master class in blending, where you will taste a selection of 5 single malts and grain whiskies which John will help you use to create your own blend. You’ll even get to take a bottle of your whisky home with you!
3.45pm – Winners go to the exclusive hotel High Road House for a little leisure time.
5.45pm – A taxi will collect you and take you to Soho.
6.15pm – Pre-dinner cocktails with John Glaser at Mark’s Bar in Soho (which was voted London’s Best Bar 2010 by Time Out Magazine).
7.30pm – Dinner at Hix Restaurant with John Glaser and some chaps from Master of Malt. Hix was voted Best New Restaurant 2010 by Time Out Magazine, and offers classic British cuisine, done beautifully by the hottest chef at the moment, Mark Hix!
If you’ve read all that and don’t want to buy as many bottles of Compass Box as you possibly can to improve your odds of winning, then we fear you’ll never find true happiness, ever. Sorry.
If you’ve read all that and want to enter the competition more than anything (which you will), but are not sure which bottles to order, allow us to recommend a few great Compass Box whiskies…
Compass Box The Peat Monster £28.95 – Blended with a very secret whisky from the village of Port Askaig on Islay, the palate offers up smoky bacon, peat and hints of tropical fruit…
Compass Box Asyla £23.95 – Compass Box’s answer to the everyday blend, Asyla is wonderfully malty and full of character…
So, good luck to all of you!
