After a successful launch last year, Angels’ Nectar Whisky Caching returns for the 19th Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival
Similar to geo-caching, but with whisky, a trail of three Angels’ Nectar Whisky Caches will be hidden across Speyside during the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival. Guests will be able to find the whisky filled caches via a series of clues after registering for the event via the Spirit of Speyside website. The first to find each Angels’ Nectar Whisky Cache will be rewarded with a 200ml bottle of Angels’ Nectar Blended Malt Scotch Whisky, perfect for sharing.
Inspired by the Angels’ share, Angels’ Nectar Blended Malt Scotch Whisky from Grantown-on-Spey based Highfern Ltd, has been created from a selection of Speyside and Highland malts, and is bottled at natural colour, with a sweet nose of apple pie and a taste of heather honey and lemon.
Whilst there is no charge to take part, whisky cachers are asked to leave a whisky miniature (or better) in place of the dram they find. Thus everyone who finds an Angels’ Nectar Whisky Cache will be a winner.
Geo-caching is a worldwide treasure-hunting phenomenon, which started in 2000 and has grown to encompass more than three million caches across 190 countries. The Angels’ Nectar version does not require GPS, but as the search for the caches will involve some light walking, outdoor clothing and footwear are recommended. The caches will also contain a logbook for participants to record their visit, and guests are asked to share their experience and tasting notes of the dram they find on social media.
Introducing the event, Robert Ransom, Angels’ Nectar founder said, ‘We hope Angels’ Nectar Whisky Caching will encourage festival goers to explore Speyside’s beautiful landscape and discover new drams. Whilst there is no need to have been geo-caching before, for the whisky loving geo-cacher, what could be better than a trail of Angel inspired whisky filled caches.’
Angels’ Nectar Whisky Caching is one of more than 500 events due to take place across Speyside as part of the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival, which this year runs from the from the 3rd to the 7th of May. Angels’ Nectar will also be offering a chance to try their whiskies at Elephants in the Pantry, Grantown, on the 4th of May, Whisky Castle, Tomintoul, on the 5th of May, and Brodie Countryfare, Forres, on the 6th of May.
