The Great Whisky Raffle (Closed)

Distillers and bottlers come together for World Whisky Day to raise money for Just a Drop – and provide one lucky person with a unique collection of at least 40 whisky bottles

Blair Bowman limbers up for the Great Distillery ChallengeWe’re giving one lucky person the opportunity to win at least 40 bottles of whisky, enough whisky to fill your bath tub! Last year we embarked on the Great Whisky Distillery Challenge and raised £11,000 for our charity partner, Just a Drop. This year we collaborated with a number of distillers and bottlers to provide one lucky person with a unique collection of at least 40 whisky bottles.

Online tickets cost just £1 and participants can buy as many as they want – or simply leave a donation if they prefer. The draw will take place on Monday 4 June, when we discover who this year’s lucky winner is. Chivas Brothers, Dewar’s, International Beverage, Edrington and Angus Dundee are among the many who have generously contributed. Last year, Mike Jackson from Wiltshire couldn’t believe his luck when pretty much a lifetime’s supply of whisky arrived at his door.

Whisky raffle collection

“Just a Drop has been our partner charity since I started World Whisky Day and it was brilliant to raise so much money and awareness for them last year.” said Blair Bowman. “The Scotch whisky industry has been very generous and helpful in supporting this initiative, which we would like to make an annual event, and broaden it out to include more whiskies from across the world. It’s a genuine win-win situation. You could win 40 bottles of whisky but, if you don’t, you will help transform the lives of people who currently don’t have access to clean, safe water. It’s so appropriate that the industry that creates ‘the water of life’ should embrace this cause.”

The raffle will run until Thursday 31 May.
