Cast your mind waaaay back, before you hit the gym to sweat out those New Year’s resolutions, before you pilfered the last of the roast potatoes on Christmas Day, and before you elbowed someone in the face to claim the last inflatable unicorn horn gift for your cat.

In those calm November days before chaos ensured, we teamed up with single malt Scotch whisky Talisker to offer one lucky winner and their plus-one a two-night trip to the Isle of Skye.

Not just any old stopover either. This extraordinary adventure included travel within the UK, two nights full board on Skye, a distillery tour, a day of action-packed activities tailored to the winner’s choosing, personalised bottles of whisky for each guest, plus a special signed bottle of Talisker 30 Year Old to boot.

Oh, and lots of lovely meals chucked in for good measure, including lunch at Blair Athol on the way, in case visiting one epic distillery just wasn’t enough. We couldn’t have you going hungry amid all those incredible activities now, could we?

Everyone who bought an eligible bottle (of which there were many!) from the official Talisker range before Christmas Eve was entered automatically. And, well, we have a winner…

Congratulations to Andy Fraser from Lancashire, who will be jetting off to the island soon for what promises to be an awesome weekend packed with fantastic food, delicious whisky and unbelievable adventures. And look at us, not even slightly jealous! Not one bit. Not oooooone bit.

If you entered the Talisker Instagram competition, which also ran before Christmas, sit tight! Diageo Reserve ‘drambassador’ Colin Dunn is busy perusing your adventurous snaps, and we’ll have news on this front soon… Stay tuned!
