Ardbeg rolls out monster delivery service this Halloween

Posted: 20th October 2020

Distillery’s monster of a dram – Ardbeg Wee Beastie – is taking over movie night this spooky season  

Ardbeg is offering whisky lovers the chance to win a ‘monster night in’ this Halloween, as they dispatch a crew of mummies, mutants, and sea creatures to deliver complimentary cocktails and mixology sessions to doorsteps across Edinburgh.

The Distillery’s monster delivery service will give fans in London, Manchester, Edinburgh and Islay the chance to receive a Monster Night In pack, with all the ingredients for a tongue-tingling Halloween movie night, including a delicious Ardbeg Wee Beastie smoky cocktail. Competition winners can expect a bang on the door sometime between 29 and 31 October, as bike-riding, box-wielding monsters take to the streets to personally present them with their prize.

A handful of winners will also be selected to win a “Knocktail Experience”: not only will they receive a special stash of Halloween treats including a bottle of Ardbeg Wee Beastie and Amazon Fire Stick, but they’ll also get a visit from their own personal monster mixologist – who’ll concoct a cocktail, right on their doorstep.

Colin Gordon, Ardbeg’s recently appointed Distillery Manager, said: “Our trusty team of creature couriers will ensure winning fans enjoy a Monster Night In this Halloween. Ardbeg Wee Beastie is a dram untamed by age, with a formidable bite, so it’s the perfect mouth-watering main ingredient in a creepy cocktail – ideal for ‘fright night’. To those who are lucky enough to nab one of these deliveries, I say lock your doors, delve inside and prepare to come face to face with the Wee Beastie!”

Visit ardbeg.com to enter. Entries open on 19th October and will close on 26th October. Monster deliveries will be made on 29 October (London), 30 October (Manchester), and 31 October (Edinburgh and Islay). Social distancing will, of course, be maintained at all times.
