Speyburn Single Malt Scotch Whisky announces the Best Catch Photo Contest for fishing enthusiasts, beginning this April 17 and running through August 31, 2012. Speyburn, distilled in the famous Speyside region of the Scottish Highlands, has had a long standing connection to conservation, fishing and the great outdoors since it was first distilled near the banks of the River Spey in 1897. Because of this, the brand will donate one dollar for every photo submitted to American Rivers, the leading organization to protect and restore our nation’s rivers and streams.
Beginning April 15, America’s fisherman can upload their “Best Catch” photo along with a 100-word description of what makes it their “best” to the Speyburn Facebook Page where the public will be able to vote for their favorite. The winner will receive a professionally-framed artist’s rendering of their picture and an Orvis gift card for $500. The runner-up will receive a Speyburn merchandise package, an American Rivers gift and an Orvis gift card for $50. In addition, one submission per month will be chosen randomly to receive a $50 Orvis gift card.
Speyburn Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky was first distilled on the December 15, 1897, the diamond jubilee year of Queen Victoria. To ensure that whisky was made in the jubilee year, men worked through the night in a heavy snowstorm, managing to bond one single barrel of 1897 Speyburn. Today, Speyburn continues to use the time-honored traditional distillation methods that created the single barrel of the 1897 vintage. Many of the original distillery fittings remain, and are still used, in this very traditional Malt Whisky distillery. Speyburn’s award-winning portfolio has recently won a Double Gold Medal at the 2012 San Francisco World Spirits Competition and Best Highland Single Malt at the World Whiskies Awards, among others.
