Big Peat Feis Ile 2018 Edition and stickers.

Yes it is that time of year once again, Feis Ile, The Islay Festival of Music and Malt and as has now become the norm, independent bottler Douglas Laing has released an Islay Festival bottling of their popular Islay blended malt, Big Peat Feis Ile 2018.

This years Big Peat Feis Ile peat packed offering from Douglas Laing is a limited edition release of 3,000 bottles, bottled at 48% ABV and as you now expect from DL, naturally coloured and non chill-filtered and has a RRP of £49.99.

This year, included in each gift tube are a number of illustrated decals, inviting the purchaser to decorate and personalise their own individual pack in a fun factor that I am pretty sure is a first for the industry. Of course I would guess the challenge will be getting the stickers straight when placing them on the tube after you have had a few drams of Big Peat. The decorative sticker designs include iconic Islay landmarks, Whisky symbols and Big Peat himself. Douglas Laing are offering buyers of Big Peat Feis Ile 2018 an incentive to share images of their creations via social media using #MyBigPeat, where you will have a chance to win a "Taste of Islay" hamper.

Cara Laing, Director of Whisky and third generation in her familyís business, said:

"We regard Big Peat a feisty gentleman of great character and depth, and whilst his particularly peated Islay Malt is revered and merits the utmost respect, he (and we) donít take ourselves too seriously. This latest Limited Edition demonstrates Douglas Laing and Big Peatís flair for innovation and fun as we encourage Whisky drinkers around the world to enjoy a taste of Islay and its legendary Feis Ile while they let their creative juices flow as they design their own bottle of Big Peat!"

So remember get those stickers on straight ladies & gents and you may have a chance of winning yourself a "Taste of Islay" hamper. The competition terms and conditions can be found at douglaslaing.com, the closing date for the competition will be 1st September 2018.

The good news is, you don't have to go to Islay to get your hands a bottle as Big Peat Feis Ile 2018 Limited Edition will be available from this month from specialist online whisky retailers such as The Whisky Exchange and Master of Malt
