A mahoosive thanks to all those who took part, the response was absolutely phenomenal. In return for your nominations, we added the names of everyone who entered into our virtual Santa hat for a chance to win a special sample set of the four latest expressions in Bruichladdich’s heavily peated Octomore range.
We’re delighted to announce that Mark Field from King's Lynn had his name drawn from the hat and is our winner. Congratulations, your Octomore 10’s will be on their way to you early next week, in time for Christmas!
