Your Islay dream home awaits you
This is all good stuff: donate about $50 to a good cause, and have a chance to win your own dream home on Islay, in addition to other cool prizes.
The contest is called “Spot the whisky barrel.” Basically, here’s how it works. A whisky barrel (empty, sorry) is going to be dropped by plane off of Islay with a parachute. The person who guesses the closest to where the barrel will land wins the first prize of about $500,000 or three acres of land on Islay and cash to build a house on it! The other prizes aren’t too shabby either: vacations on Islay, barrels of whisky, bottles of whisky, etc.
