Win 4 days in Scotland on the ultimate malt

whisky knowledge course courtesy of


If you’ve ever wondered how a malt whisky value compares to for example some of the finest wines, this is the knowledge site for you. This is also your chance to win a place on probably the most exclusive single malt whisky ‘training’ course there is. All your travel and accommodation arrangements are included and you’ll be based in the heart of Speyside and your ‘school room’ will be Royal Lochnagar distillery by Balmoral Castle. Here you’ll meet and be tutored by the people who make the malt and the independent writers who make a living from the subject.

The 4 days of exploration will take you through the intricacies and mysteries of malt making as well as some of the most inspirational locations. The course does include a short flight from Glasgow airport to Islay (weather conditions allowing) so your increased passion for malt whisky might be matched with an enthusiasm for small (and sometimes bumpy) aeroplanes!

The objective of the course is to increase your understanding and knowledge of malt whisky – and give an insight into the differences between well made and badly made whisky.

To win this unique prize, simply visit the site www.malts.com and register.

malts.com is the official website for direct sales for over 20 separate distilleries throughout the Highlands and Islands. Each has a virtual tour showing where they are, how their malt is made, their history and latest bottlings – all delivered directly to your door. So whisky, like information is better coming directly from the horse’s mouth!

You can then post your views of the malts on the site, side by side with the ‘experts’. The specially developed on-line evaluation tools help express the sometimes (necessarily) complex descriptions of a malt whisky’s appearance, aroma, taste and finish.

The regular articles and the members’ forum are good places to fill any gaps in your malt whisky knowledge. You can register to receive the regular malts.com email newsletter to keep you up to date with special offers, Limited Editions and tastings in your area.

All who register are regularly entered into free prize draws to win unique prizes that only the distilleries themselves can offer. How would you like a few days in the Highlands being trained by the most respected whisky experts in the world? Or being allowed to stock your whisky cupboard with a £1000 worth of Rare and Limited Edition malts?

On behalf of all the distillery managers, we’d like to extend an invitation to visit us. We’d also value your views on your favourite malts and of the site – as like malt whiskies, they only improve if the right stuff goes in, in the first place!
