Glengoyne creates new puzzle and gift setsBy Nicola Carruthers
Scotch whisky brand Glengoyne has released a new 500-piece jigsaw puzzle and two time-inspired gift sets ahead of the festive period.
The new puzzle follows the success of the first 500-piece jigsaw released during the UK lockdown in April 2020.
A painting by Scottish artist John Lowrie Morrison features on the new puzzle, called ‘Heavy Snow at Glengoyne Distillery’.
The piece is said to take around four to six hours to complete, and comes free with a purchase of Glengoyne 18 Year Old in store or online from Glengoyne over the festive period. The 18-year-old whisky and puzzle are also available to buy online from John Lewis and in specialists whisky retailers for RRP £109.99 (US$145).
The jigsaw is also free with purchases of any 700ml bottle priced at more than £100 (US$131), or as a £10 (US$13) add on with any 700ml bottle with a value of less than £100, when purchased directly from Glengoyne.
In addition, Glengoyne has released two gift sets to mark the brand’s link to time as Scotland’s “slowest distilled malt”.
Katy Muggeridge, senior brand manager for Glengoyne, said: “Time plays a pivotal role in our whisky making, so it made sense to develop a festive gifting range that celebrates this connection and helps people enjoy a great dram this Christmas in their own time.”
The Time Capsule gift set offers three samples of Glengoyne’s 12-year-old and 18-year-old expressions, and the new Legacy Series: Chapter Two. It can be purchased in two sizes that come with three 50ml or 200ml bottles. The Time Capsule 50ml set is priced at £25 (US$33), while the 200ml set is priced at £65 (US$85).
Meanwhile, the Time Keeper gift set features a 700ml bottle of Glengoyne 12 Year Old, a tasting booklet and a branded glass. It has an RRP of £50 (US$66).
The Glengoyne Time Capsule and Time Keeper sets are available from Glengoyne’s website, in store and online from John Lewis, Moonpig, Selfridges and specialist whisky retailers.
