Inbox - June 14, 2013

Welcome to this week's Inbox.  For those that have recently discovered us, Inbox is our weekly round up of whisky news and PR material that has found its way in to our email inbox. It was created as we cannot write full articles or do justice to every piece received. It features items from around the world of whisky and is published by us each Friday.

Within Inbox we aim to write a few lines detailing each press release/piece of news/PR event that we have received and provide links, where possible, for you to find out further information.  Here is the news that has attracted our attention this week ...

The #youranCnoc competition will take place on June 17 when fans will be asked to tweet a photo of their 'perfect anCnoc moment' on that day. Ten entries will be selected by Peter Arkle - these will then be hand-drawn, transferred onto individual bottles of anCnoc and sent to the winners. Additionally, one lucky winner will be taken to New York to meet Peter and see his Manhattan studio.

Entries can be posted between 00:00 GMT on Monday 17 June and 09:00 on Tuesday 18 June, and should be posted to @ancnoc_whisky on Twitter using the hashtag #youranCnoc.  Good luck with your snapping ...
