The Speyburn Clan Cask pub quiz - Round One

A couple of weeks ago, we at Whisky For Everyone celebrated our fifth birthday (more to come on that shortly, by the way).  In the latest part of our celebrations, we are delighted to be teaming up with Inverhouse Distillers for a competition - we have a bottle of the very limited Speyburn Clan Cask to give to one lucky reader. The Clan Cask was distilled in 1975 and is one of the oldest expressions of Speyburn ever released.

The whisky is from a single specially selected ex-Pedro Ximinez sherry cask and is bottled at the natural cask strength of 55.8% ABV.  It is available exclusively to members of the Clan Speyburn - existing members can purchase it via a special link, which has already been sent out, while any new members will receive this link shortly after signing up. The 1975 Clan Cask is delicious and we have sampled it - click here to read our review.

A bottle costs £230, so you are going to have to do a bit of work to win it ...  To this end, we have designed a simple 'pub quiz' that will involve three rounds of questions.  The three rounds will appear over the next few days.  You will need to be a registered member of the Clan Speyburn (if you aren't, then you can sign up for free by clicking here) and living in the UK to enter. Terms & Conditions are below and please keep your answers until the final round - then email all of them to whiskyforeveryone@gmail.com.

Round One - Facts about Speyburn

  1. In which year did the first spirit flow from the stills of Speyburn?
  2. Which architect designed the distillery?
