It’s that time of year again – not Easter, but Battle of the Blends! We’ve once again teamed up with Whisky Magazine to host the contest for a third year, and WE NEED YOU AND YOUR PALATE!
Yep, we need YOU to join the judging panel. How, you may ask? Simply snap up a 1p (yes, 1p. Your eyes do not deceive you.) Battle of the Blends Challenge No. 3 Judging Set, and get ready to choose your favourite blend!
What is this Battle of the Blends we speak of? If you’re not a Whisky Magazine reader, let’s bring you up to speed. This is the third edition of the head-to-head battle, where two talented whisky industry types take a cask and come up with their own expertly and intricately crafted blend in it. The precious liquids are then swiftly drammed by Drinks by the Dram, whisked to MoM HQ, and then securely packaged to be sent out to our illustrious judging panel, who then decide who will be crowned the Battle of the Blends Challenge No.3 champion!
This year we’ve got George Keeble of Soho Whisky Club (last year’s victor) up against Lydnsey Gray, manager at The Quaich Bar at the Craigellachie Hotel. With such a high calibre of competitor, you can be sure the blends will be downright delicious. How to choose between them? Well, that’s up to you…
