Attention whisky cocktail lovers!! You listening?

Miss Whisky has a question for you…

Do you love trying new whisky cocktails?

Or…are you a newbie to whisky but keen to learn how to make some delicious drinks for you and your friends this summer?

Then you’re in the right place.

As the rain finally drifts out of our skies and the temperatures heat up, whisky highballs (an ever-more popular take on whisky and soda) will be the perfect way to quench dry throats.

One great way to make these delicious tipples is with Japanese single malt, like the Hakushu 12 year old, or blended whiskies, such as the Hibiki 17 and 21 year old, because of their smooth, floral honeyed flavours, which work brilliantly with a variety of cocktail mixers.

Last year, the 21 year old was named world’s best blended whisky for the second year in a row, while the Hibiki brand itself has held coveted titles for the past four years.

So, why is Miss Whisky telling you about this?

Because she’s going to be offering one lucky reader the chance to win a bottle of Hibiki 17 along with a one-hour personal cocktail class with top mixologist and brand ambassador Zoran Peric at the rather plush 5* Corinthia Hotel on the 29 June!

All you need to do to try and get your hands on this tasty prize is answer the following question:

In which year was Hibiki 21 year old named the world’s best blended whisky?

Send your answer (along with your age, name and address) on email to: by the 5 June.

The winner will be notified by e-mail.
