A huge thanks to all those who took part in our September competition. I'm pleased to announce that the winner is:

New to the world of bourbon and rye? Then this competition has your name written all over it!

Regardless if you’re a liquid Americana virgin or a newbie keen to dip your toes further, we’re giving you the chance to win a set of four 5cl samples; Sazerac 6yr Rye, Four Roses Single Barrel, Elijah Craig 12 and Pikesville Rye. If that wasn’t enough we’ll also be throwing in a full size 70cl bottle of the cherry kicked bourbon infusion Red Stag.

Each and every Thursday throughout September we’ll be posing a different liquid American based question on the website. All you need to do is answer all five questions correctly, then email the answers to me via the contact section on the website with the subject line ‘Sept Comp’. Though do make sure you have all five answers to all five questions before you email!
