Competition Time (Vol.1)

Competition Time Vol.1

The only thing better than whisky, is free whisky! And it is with that in mind, that we're giving you a chance to win some free whiskies for your drinking pleasure.


To stand a chance to win, you need to post a review. Post any review as listed below, and you will be entered into a ballot. For every review you complete, you will receive entries and increase your chances to win. At the end of the competition period (6pm 25th April), we will randomly draw names from all the entries and distribute prizes! 

The product reviews can be short and sweet, no need to write up professional tasting notes or anything poncy like that! They are there to help your fellow whisky-lovers make a more informed decision with differing views, so keep that in mind when writing your reviews.


    The following prizes are available to win:

    • A whisky hamper to the value of over R7,000
    • R2,000 gift voucher
    • R1,000 gift voucher
    • R500 gift voucher
    We may also be inspired by your reviews and award some spot prizes for a job well done!


      • Only South Africa residents, 18+ years old are eligible to win
      • Competition runs from 1AM 12 April until 6PM 25 April
      • Reviews must be at least 70 characters, including spaces, to qualify (unfortunately a thumbs-up and fire emoji won't cut it)
      • The whisky hamper consists of a bottle of each of the following: Kilchoman Sanaig, Loch Lomond 12yo, Glenmorangie 10yo, Wolfburn Morven, Highland Park 12yo WhiskyBrother Cask, Arran 12yo WhiskyBrother Cask, Big Peat Christmas Edition 2018, Bain's, anCnoc 12yo. (And possibly even another whisky or two for good measure.)
      • If you review the specific brands that allow you a chance to win a bottle of whisky, you will still receive entries to win the overall prizes as well
      • The whisky hamper will be couriered to the winner, at our expense, if unable to be collected in person
      • Gift vouchers will be sent via email
      • Winners will have 1 week to contact us once we have notified them, to claim their prize. Thereafter we will select new winners, and so on and so forth until we will just drink the whisky ourselves

      If you have any questions, or you think we left something out, please contact us here. Now go forth and review!

          The @whiskeybroshop always brings us closer to the whiskeys that otherwise I wouldn’t have noticed. It’s like traveling the world in a glass…..

          Hi Marc & Co.
          Awesome that you guys are promoting the whiskies, bar and shop by means of a competition. Kudos to you.
          However, good luck trying to tally up all the posts, tweets, reviews etc. unless they are done individually and not combined – tracking down who is who in the zoo will be a challenge with all the aliases out there ;-)
          Many thanks indeed, will do my bit for a some points for sure. :-)
