Old Ballantruan 10 Year Old Launch Tweet Tasting

As part of the launch for Old Ballantruan 10 Year Old, we’re absolutely thrilled to announce that on October 10th we’ll be holding yet another Tweet Tasting dramstravaganza, sampling not only Old Ballantruan but also their brand new 10 Year Old expression.
Old Ballantruan is distilled in the traditional manner
in the prestigious Speyside Glenlivet region, and unusually
for this district, it is made with heavily-peated malted
barley to impart a distinctive and unique flavour.
 It owes its name to an exceptional source of the purest of waters,
 the Ballantruan Spring, nestling in the Cromdale Hills close to
  Tomintoul, the highest village in the Scottish Highlands.
 After ‘sleeping’ for many years in hand-picked oak barrels, the
whisky is bottled at 50% volume and without any chill filtration
 in order to retain its layered and integrated peaty flavours
If you would like to take part in the Tweet Tasting action and sample a duo of heavily peated Speyside delights, register your interest by emailing your details via the contact tab, marking the subject line #OB10TT.
The closing date to register your interest is the 18th of September. Selected Tweet Tasters will then be notified by the 20th of September. Places are limited, and if you are registering to take part please make sure that you will actually be free on the night!
Even if you're not one of the selected Tweet Tasters, it'd be great to have you following all the dramanagins on the night as they pour and unfold with a dram in hand. So we look forward to seeing you over on Twitter at 7pm on October 10th via hashtag #OB10TT.
Until then Happy Dramlaxing!
