Whisky News Flash: Bowmore Announces Its “Ultimate Islay Adventure” Contest!

Earlier this week, I received an email from a PR firm in Glasgow asking if we would help them promote a contest for the Bowmore Distillery. Here was my initial response to their request:

Thanks for reaching out to us! This sounds like a fantastic contest, but truth be told, I’m greedy and I want it all to myself! I MUST GET TO ISLAY! NOW!

After giving it a bit of thought, I realized that selfishness has never gotten me anywhere, so I decided that I would share this information with you, our loyal readers. There’s just one catch, if any of you happen to win this fabulous prize, I’m going too! Is that too much to ask? I think not.

Without further ado, here is more information from our friends in Glasgow about this fantastic contest! May the best man or woman win. Slainte!

  1. I don’t know G, if I won, you’d have to fight the Wife for the other spot, and she could be pretty vicious if it came down to a trip to Scotland 🙂
