Call for entries for Famous Grouse Famous Pubs 2011

Published:  05 July, 2011

Maxxium UK is launching The Famous Grouse Famous Pubs 2011, to find UK pubs with quirky histories.

The whisky brand will call on landlords and pub goers from around the UK, to share with the nation what makes their pub famous, it could be a quirky history, a famous punter, a local legend or a fascinating fact.

Last year's finalists included: King Tut's Wah Wah Hut in Glasgow, the discovery place of some of the UK's biggest names in music including Oasis, The Neuadd Arms in Wales, famous for hosting yearly World Bog Snorkelling Championships and The Robin Hood in Brighton, a pub that gives all of its profits to charity.

Paul Waterson, president of the Scottish Licensed Trade Association (SLTA), will sit on the judging panel this year alongside Jim Grierson and Andy Gemmell.

Jim Grierson, on trade sales director at Maxxium UK, said: "The Famous Grouse is committed to leading the way in blended Scotch by bringing exciting and engaging initiatives to the on trade.

Publicans have long been supportive of our fame and we wanted to do something to celebrate theirs."

Each winning pub will receive a personalised limited edition plaque to honour this achievement, and will feature in a special supplement that will run in The Sunday Telegraph.

The closing date for nominations is September 18.  Click here to enter.
