In Good Spirits: Win £300 Worth of Gin and Whisky from Bruichladdich Distillery


Keep your glass half full with our latest competition

Our plans for 2020 might have gone wayward, but we're trying our best to keep our glass half full, so to speak. Making that a task a little easier is Bruichladdich Distillery, who's giving SUITCASE readers the chance to win more than £300 worth of its artisan whiskies and gin crafted on Scotland's wild west coast.

At one with the Hebrides' island of Islay, the birthplace of the world's peatiest whiskies, Bruichladdich is a pioneer of progressive Scottish spirits, having given its Victorian distillery a sustainable, community-focused revamp while leading the way in the foraging movement for gin botanicals.

It's small surprise that these laddies are recognised as a people- and planet-friendly B Corp - Europe's only whisky and gin distillery to be certified as such. Bruichladdich is an outfit that uses its business as a force for good, so you can polish your halo as you raise a toast or three.

Winners will sample the distillery's bevy of bevvies, including three single-malt whiskies. Our favourite? The Port Charlotte, a smokey, oaky brew of Inverness-Shire barley, which has been watched over by a small team on the shores of Loch Indaal for the 10 years of its maturing life. It's best enjoyed from a curvaceous Classic Glencairn tasting glass.

Keen to give you a real taste of Islay, Bruichladdich is also throwing in a magnum of The Botanist dry gin, an achingly slow, complex distillation of 22 hand-foraged botanicals, berries, barks, seeds and peels. All you need to do is cobble together a bianco negroni and give it a stir with The Botanist stainless-steel straws - yes, you'll snag a set of those too and, yes, its canvas case will look very eco-chic in your late-summer picnic hamper.
