Glenrothes to launch whisky making competition

Published:  25 August, 2010

Glenrothes is launching a global cometition giving four consumers a chance to become Glenrothes whisky makers for a week.

The successful candidates will be recruited to work as 'The Glenrothes Whisky Makers' in the heart of single malt production, Speyside, Scotland.

As part of this opportunity, they will learn the time-honoured art of making The Glenrothes and the time-honoured skills that have been passed down from generation to generation.

The winners will spend time working at each stage of the whisky-making process, be involved in making casks at the cooperage and have the opportunity to create their own selection of The Glenrothes.

The whisky makers will stay in Rothes House, a private home belonging to the family that owns The Glenrothes will enjoy some of the simple pleasures that Speyside has to offer.

The competition will run from October 2010 to the end of January 2011.
