We’ve teamed up with Takamaka to give you an opportunity to go on a rum-soaked trip to the Seychelles!

On the island of Mahé in the Seychelles lies a distillery. One that operates on an estate was founded by French settlers over 200 years ago. Since 2002, it has been the first and only commercial rum producer and exporter in the Seychelles, and today produces a range of delicious spirits using sugarcane grown across Mahé by independent farmers, which is crushed, distilled, aged and blended on-site. 

We’re talking, of course, about Takamaka rum. But why are we telling you all this? Because we’re inviting you to come and see the distillery for yourself. In the actual Seychelles. Nope, we’re not pulling your leg. This is a real competition.

What you win

This VIP trip means flights for 2 people from the United Kingdom to the Seychelles International Airport, airport transfers from and to said airport; and accommodation for 2 people at the self-catering Takamaka House, in Mahe, Seychelles. 

There’s also a complimentary tour of the Takamaka distillery, including rum tasting and an optional visit to the sugar cane fields, as well a complimentary welcome pack with essential food items and drinks at the accommodation, free use of kayak and snorkels provided with the accommodation, AND the possibility of a guided hike into the Seychelles mountain jungles or trek to explore hidden beaches.

Win a VIP trip to Highland Park Distillery

One of the world’s most famous whisky distilleries could be in your sights if victory is yours in our latest VIP trip competition.

It’s always been a belief of ours that if you really want to understand a whisky, you need to see inside the distillery where it’s made and meet the people who make it. This is particularly true of the legendary Highland Park Distillery, one of just two distilleries to call the Orkney Islands home and a brand that has a compelling sense-of-place story. 

For many whisky fans, seeing Highland Park in its Orkney home is a bucket-list destination and many of us would do frankly terrible things in order to drink its delicious whisky where it’s made. Good thing, then, that’s we’re giving you a chance to go there.

Win a VIP trip to Highland Park Distillery

You could be here soon! Image credits: Søren Solkær

If you win, what you’ll enjoy is standard or economy travel for you (and your chosen plus-one, pick wisely!) from an airport in the UK to Orkney and then standard accommodation there for two nights. A complimentary breakfast will also be provided by the hotel, as well as a lunch and a dinner for two people. There will also be an Orkney Islands tour as well as, and get ready to freak whisky geeks, a VIP private tour of the distillery.

To enter, you just need to pick yourself up a bottle (or more) of any of the following: Highland Park Cask Strength Cask Strength Release No.2, Highland Park 12 Year Old, Highland Park 15 Year Old Viking Heart, Highland Park 18 Year Old Viking Pride, and/or Highland Park 21 Year Old – 2020 Release. Do that and you’ll be in it to win it. Simple and you get to enjoy some delicious whisky.

You have until 12 December to enter, so don’t miss out. Best of luck!

Win a VIP trip to the Kilchoman Distillery on Islay!

Just when you thought we were done, we’re back again. Once more we’re sending two lucky people to Islay, this time in the company of Kilchoman.

In distillery terms, Kilchoman is still something of a new kid on the block. Just 15-and-a-bit years ago it became the first new distillery on Islay for 124 years. But in a short time, it has established a reputation as Islay’s fabulous farm distillery, ensuring the beautiful island on which resides shines through every dram through the use of locally-grown grain malted in their own floor maltings. This is a genuinely small-scale, craft operation that eschews volume and cost in favour of flavour. And if you’ve tasted Kilchoman’s whisky, you’ll know it was worth the effort. 

It’s a distillery that really should be on your bucket list. Luckily, the independent family business has partnered with us to give you a chance to visit and enjoy a number of whisky-based activities to boot. We’re back with another competition and for anyone who loves their Islay whisky, the prize is a dream trip. Let’s break down exactly what you stand to win.

Win a VIP trip to the Kilchoman Distillery on Islay!

Want to head here? Now’s your chance!

What you’ll win

  • Return standard or economy flight travel for 2 people from Glasgow airport to the distillery in Islay, Scotland;
  • Travel from Islay airport to the Kilchoman distillery;
  • Complimentary coffee, complimentary lunch at the visitor centre;
  • Complimentary VIP personal tour;
  • Complimentary warehouse tasting;
  • Complimentary coffee and cake picnic on Machir Bay;
  • Standard accommodation in Islay at the Machrie for 1 night for 2 people (subject to availability and to be arranged by prize provider), including dinner and breakfast;
  • Complimentary round of golf OR spa treatment OR time in the Still House distilling Kilchoman with the team.

It’s your chance to see what makes this distillery so special

How to enter

I’m sure most of you know the drill by now, but for anyone new (welcome, by the way, please stay and check out the many other delights of our blog) all you need to do is purchase a bottle of whisky from the Kilchoman range for a chance to win. There’s no limit on how many bottles you can buy and this method of entry comes with the bonus that you win regardless because, even if you don’t find yourself heading to Islay, you still have some delicious Kilchoman whisky to enjoy!

Best of luck to all of you who enter!

We’re giving you and a plus-one the chance to head to Islay and to enjoy some Fèis Ìle 2022 festivities with the wonderful folk at Bunnahabhain Distillery. You don’t want to miss out.

Spending the last two years not attending Fèis Ìle in person has been hard for us whisky lovers. We miss the sights, the sounds, the smells. Frankly, you’ll have to forgive some of us here at MoM Towers who have been experiencing some slight withdrawal symptoms. Jake has taken to standing underneath a sprinkler while blasting Celtic tunes. I’m making travel arrangements for ferries and flights and then cancelling all of them at the last minute. I think I even saw Sam scribbling his own label on a mock TBWC exclusive bottle. It was very clearly bourbon. The poor soul.

There’s only one cure for all of this. We simply must go next year. We have to experience the island, the food, the music, the wilderness and, of course, the whisky. We’re sure you’re of a similar mindset. This is why we came up with a brilliant idea. Why don’t we send a couple of you to the island while the festival is going on behalf of us and our friends over at Bunnahabhain Distillery

That’s right, it’s competition time. And this one is a doozy. We’re jetting you off to Scotland for three nights from 2-5 June 2022 to enjoy an array of activities and boozy delights. And it’s all happening while Fèis Ìle 2022 is taking place (27 May – 4 June). Want to know exactly what you could win? Of course you do. Here’s the list in full:

Win a trip to Fèis Ìle 2022 with Bunnahabhain!

Fancy heading here? Enter now!

The grand prize

-Flights from a UK airport to Scotland, and onward travel to Islay (flights and ferry)
-Accommodation at the cottage at Bowmore from the 2nd to the 5th June 2022 with breakfast included.
-Complimentary evening meal, with a tutored tasting from someone at the distillery
-A morning masterclass with master blender Julieann Fernandez and distillery manager Andrew Brown
-As well as a backstage pass to have a chat with them after the tasting
-Two tickets for the incredibly popular dramming sessions at Warehouse 9
-Two tickets for the Bunnahabhain at Sea boat trip
-Two tickets for one complimentary lunch at the Bunnahabhain Distillery
-A complimentary Fèis Ìle bottling of whisky
-£25 allowance per person per day

It’s worth saying at this point that, if the much-feared does happen and Fèis Ìle is postponed, the dates and details of the trip will be adjusted to match. For full details check the T&Cs, as always.

Win a trip to Fèis Ìle 2022 with Bunnahabhain!

Whisky-soaked adventure awaits!

“How do I enter?! Tell meeeeeee!!!”

Simple. Just purchase a bottle of whisky from this range of Bunnahabhain delights for a chance to win. You can buy as many bottles as you want from the following selection, which includes some great special offers, and even if you don’t win you’ll still have a terrific bottle of whisky to call your own. We do look after you.

You have until 30 June to enter, so don’t hang around. The chance to win a trip of a lifetime doesn’t come around often, so when it does you really want to take it. Best of luck everyone!

MoM Bunnahabhain Competition 2021 open to entrants 18 years and over. Entries accepted from 12:00:01pm 16 June to 23:59 30 June 2021. Date and important travel restrictions apply. Winners chosen at random after close of competition. Postal route available. See full T&Cs for details.

Win an incredible VIP Trip to Jura Distillery!

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. 

VIP Trip to Jura Distillery

Just picture yourself here…

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!

VIP Trip to Jura Distillery

The trip isn’t the only prize up for grabs, so are these amazing distillery exclusive bottlings!

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:

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!

VIP Trip to Jura Distillery

Want this to be you? Then enter now!
