1st prize: The ultimate VIP experience for two at the Auchentoshan Distillery, plus a personally filled bottle

Normally, only the Auchentoshan master blender and distillery manager sample straight from the warehouse casks. However, it’s just one of the very special moments on this incredibly detailed, 135-minute tour of the distillery in Dalmuir, near Glasgow.

You will also receive a masterclass in three of their core range whiskies, and sample two of their archive whiskies, exclusive to Auchentoshan Distillery, in the Blender’s Room.

If that wasn’t enough, you will also be able to take away something utterly unique from your visit – a bottle of Single Malt Whisky filled by you from one of our casks.

2nd prize: The Auchentoshan experience for two

In this 90-minute tour you’ll sample three different Auchentoshan Single Malt Whiskies on your journey. You’ll also taste a Single Malt Whisky from one of our sister distilleries, Bowmore or Glen Garioch.


3rd prize: A bottle of Auchentoshan Single Malt whisky

We have three bottles to give away. of the Auchentoshan Single Malt whisky, which is triple distilled and matured solely in American bourbon casks. The result: a Lowland Single Malt Whisky with the sweet aromas of vanilla and coconut – along with the signature smooth, delicate, Auchentoshan taste.
