Back in May, we at MoM really outdid ourselves by offering you the chance to win a VIP trip to Mortlach Distillery, which on any regular day, isn’t usually open to the public. Nevertheless, we worked our magic and devised a competition to send one lucky Scotch whisky fan (and their chosen plus one) to the home of The Beast of Dufftown.

A VIP trip to a Scotch whisky distillery that is usually hidden away from the public? What a delight! The fortunate folks will be treated to a private tour and tasting, the ultimate rarity for this distillery. They’ll even have tours of Speyside cooperage and Cardhu Distillery, as well as two nights’ accommodation in the Craigellachie Hotel. And then we threw in a bottle of the utterly fabulous Mortlach 20 Year Old, because why not?

Tasty, tasty Mortlach 12 Year Old looking fancy.

Applying for this once in a lifetime opportunity was a breeze. All that was required was a purchase of one 70cl bottle of Mortlach 12 Year Old, 16 Year Old or 20 Year Old, and that was it! Just to sweeten the deal, we even took 10% off those expressions, because we’re nice like that.

Alas, there can only be one winner, and now is the time for the big reveal.

The winner is…

George Paterson from West Yorkshire!

You’re the envy of the town, George, and a great big congratulations! For those of you who missed out, at least you can rest easy knowing you have a delicious dram of Mortlach in your possession.
