Win a Highland Park Rebus20

Postby Matt2 » Fri Apr 20, 2007 4:07 pm

Whisky Magazine Highland Park Rebus20 competition

After reading our exclusive story in Issue 62, you will know all about the unique partnership between Highland Park and Ian Rankin, the best selling crime writer.

Together they have produced a limited edition whisky to celebrate the 20th anniversary of Ian Rankin’s first Inspector Rebus novel Knots & Crosses.

Ian chose this whisky as the ultimate drink for his whisky-loving Inspector from a selection of 20-year-old casks, when he visited the Highland Park distillery in Orkney last November. With its white crossed matches and distinctive red Rebus lettering it is one of the world’s most unusual bottles of whisky.

Only 160 bottles of Rebus20 have been produced and they will only be available through exclusive activities surrounding the Rebus20 anniversary year of 2007.

Thanks to Highland Park and publishers Orion we are offering one lucky reader the chance to win a bottle of Rebus20 and a signed copy of the limited Collectors’ Edition of Knots & Crosses. Plus two runners up will receive a bottle of Highland Park 12-year-old and a signed paperback.

To enter this competition, answer the following question and complete the form below. All correct answers will be entered into the prize draw and one lucky winner and two runners up will be chosen at random.

Enter here >

Like Johnathan, I hope it's open to everyone and a UK address is available if needed.

I’ve tried to enter this a few times. At first, when I submit it says, “You must enter a couny or state”. So I change it from NY to New York hoping this will take care of it. Then when I submit, it just says, “There was a problem with your entry, please check the form below and make the changes required.” But there is no further indication of just what the problem might be. Any idea what I might be doing wrong?

A bit strange this UK only thingie.

Is WM not an international magazine - or is it only the forums that have an international following?

I think it has to do with actually delivery the bottle to a winner outside of the UK. But I agree with you especially since I live in Canada.

i think to that it will be a delivery thing with al these stupid rules that exsist

but if its open to uk only then we should be in with a better chance than winning than if it was open to all.

It probably has something to do with that. But I quite sure something could be worked out, if WM really wanted to. Why not use the distillerys delivery network and have the winner pick it up at his og hers local HP stockist?

I entered from outside the forums and it accepted my entry without problem. Maybe I've just reduced my chances of winning but it's fair to let those outside UK know how to enter.

Certainly you silver tongued deveel. I didn't log in, just opened this forum, clicked on enter here> and after answering the "skill testing question" filled in my name, address, etc and hit Submit. And it was gone to the electronic ether. And...yes it is a new shirt, my wife dresses me well, don't you think? :mrgreen:

I tried to enter a few minutes ago, but it says that the competition is closed.

Was it cancelled, or did someone win it.

Cheers.
