Get nostalgic and win a unique bottle of Bruichladdich




Over on their blog, Islay malt Bruichladdich are offering fans the chance to win a bottle of their ultra-limited edition 2012 Islay Festival bottling.

The XX Nostalgia malt was distilled in 1992 and has been aged for two decades in oak before being finished in Gaja Barolo casks.

To win the bottle on offer all you have to do is to send them something nostalgic. As they say on the blog, it can be a photograph, or a story or a poem, a memory or even a cuddly toy.

It doesn’t even need to be anything to do with Bruichladdich – although they make a point of saying the judges will be very biased towards “entries featuring the world’s greatest distillery”. They also say that bribing the judges might work and that cheating is perfectly acceptable!

Check out their blog at or send your entries to “The World’s Greatest Distillery, Bruichladdich, Islay” by Friday 15 June.

Event Details

Organised by 2 local whisky enthusiasts, Chris Knight and Neil Rowley; we wanted a way to give fellow enthusiasts, and new comers alike, the chance to taste new whiskies from a wide range of distillers from around the world, along with some fantastic offerings from independent bottlers.

There are 2 types of ticket, an Admission ticket and a Masterclass ticket. A Masterclass ticket MUST be accompanied by an Admission ticket.

With the increased popularity of gins over recent years, we also wanted to raise people’s awareness of the fantastic products now available. There will be a number of gins available at the festival, giving you a chance to try new gins from some of the many artisan distillers.
