the Craigellachie Hotel

PRIZE 1 – The Ultimate Whisky Experience

Minimum Bid £6,000. Experience the region of Speyside in Scotland’s beautiful North East.

Spend two nights in the ultimate Highland getaway with dinner and breakfast included. The Craigellachie Hotel, in the beautiful village of Craigellachie near Elgin, was built in 1893 as a destination for the Victorians who visited to take in the clear clean air and the stunning surroundings. The hotel reopened in 2014 after a multi-million-pound investment and, following in tradition, provides ultimate luxury and relaxation, with beautiful views of the surrounding River Spey Valley.

Day one you will be met at the airport/train station in a luxury vehicle and welcomed with a whisky cocktail on check-in. Following this, relax, enjoy the views or explore.

Donald Colville

Day two is the whisky experience. You will be invited into one of our private rooms and led through some hand selected casks with whisky expert Donald Colville and team. Whisky will vary in style and flavour from different regions and ages. The whole experience is designed to find the perfect whisky for your palate. Your favourite will then be exclusively placed in 150 bottles, the labels for which will be of your choosing, personalised and unique. Your bottles can then be split amongst family, friends, business contacts or kept all to yourself! There is even the option to store them onsite and have them delivered as you need.

The lucky winner can also choose to own a cask and keep it for a longer time to maybe coincide with a special future date.

Day three enjoy a late checkout and luxury transport back to the airport.

With a value of over £16,000, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity not to be missed.

Open to UK residents only or those that have the ability to store within the UK.
