And the winner is ...

birthday cakeA couple of weeks ago, Whisky For Everyone reached its second birthday. We decided to celebrate the fact that it was two years since our first ever blog post by setting a competition - we asked for ideas about articles or features that you would like to see us write about on our blog.

We received a number of very good and interesting suggestions but we decided to leave it to an independent panel of judges/friends to decide the winner. These included Chris Maclean, the manager of The Whisky Shop's London branch and Tom Driver, the man who designed our Whisky For Everyone logos.

So, here goes ... drum roll please. Our judges all went for the same idea, so therefore the unanimous winner is Stephen from Minneapolis in the USA. He wrote,
"I would love to see an article on ideas for hosting a whisky tasting party for friends and family. The more we share our passion with others the more the culture will grow and mature which is a win for all parties! Keep up the great work!"

Well done Stephen and the prizes - a 20cl bottle of Talisker 10 years old, a sample of a forthcoming mystery dram (this will be posted within the next week or so) and a few other goodies - will be winging their way across the Atlantic shortly. Please contact us at whiskyforeveryone@gmail.com and we can arrange this. Our article about hosting your own whisky tasting will appear shortly.

We would also like to thank everyone who has left us a birthday message either here on the blog, via email or on Twitter @whisky4everyone - these are much appreciated by us both.

Karen & Matt
