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
‘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.

To win, simply enter your email below. Slàinte mhath.

The Lowdown

and reinventing their Victorian distillery to focus the majority of
operations on their island home.
