Fancy a chance of visiting one of Scotland’s most remote whisky distilleries on a swanky VIP Trip? Then read on…
With everything that’s occurred in 2020, I think it’s fair to say we’re all in need of a holiday. And if you’re in the mood for a proper escape, then an island that’s famous for its tiny human headcount and vast deer population, a remote retreat that George Orwell described as “extremely un-get-atable place.” Sounds ideal, doesn’t it? Particularly if that place is also famous for its whisky.
Fans of the water of life will already know that I’m talking about Jura in the Inner Hebrides, where Orwell marooned himself to write 1984. The island’s distillery, now one of the main draws for visitors, was originally established in 1810, the distillery was reborn in 1963 and has spent much of the last half a century creating whisky that marries archetypal Highland and Island profiles in soft, fruity, coastal and delicately peaty expressions.
It’s a place every Scotch whisky fan would love to go. The chance to sample that spirit in the rugged surroundings of the Jura isn’t the pipe dream you might think it is, however, thanks to our latest competition. We’ve teamed up with the fine folk at Jura Distillery to offer you a once-in-a-lifetime VIP trip, complete with UK travel to Jura and the Jura Distillery for two people including transport for the duration of the trip, as well as two nights accommodation at The Jura hotel, breakfast included and island activity such as a walk to the market loch, a boat trip or cycling (weather and time of year dependant).
You’ll also get a tour of the Jura distillery and a distillery exclusive bottling signed by distillery manager Graham Logan to take away. How cool is that? We even have six bottles of the distillery exclusive 17 Year Old sherry cask expression for six runners-up, so if you don’t get your hands on the main prize then you could still win big!
Here’s how you enter: just buy a bottle from this range of Jura whisky*. How simple is that? For more info see the competition terms below, but for now, here’s the full list of eligible expressions, some of which you can pick up for a reduced prize:
- Isle Of Jura Seven Wood (now with £6 off)
- Isle of Jura 18 Year Old (now with £10 off)
- Isle of Jura 10 Year Old (now with £3 off)
- Isle of Jura 12 Year Old
- Jura 21 Year Old Tide (now with £30 off)
- Isle Of Jura Journey
- Jura 12 Year Old Gift Pack with 2x Glasses (now with £6.05 off)
- Jura 13 Year Old 2006 Two-One-Two (now with £10 off)
The bonus of this competition is that even if you don’t get the chance to plan a VIP trip to Jura, you’ve still got some delicious Scotch whisky to enjoy. That’s what I call a win-win. Good luck, everyone!
