Stirling Distillery launch spirit-themed Easter hunt

Stirling Distillery, situated in the shadow of Stirling Castle, is hosting a fun twist on the traditional Easter egg hunt this weekend with a spirit-themed hunt around the city.

Showing that Easter hunts aren’t just for children, the distillery team have hidden a series of clues (A4 posters) around iconic locations in Stirling which can all be redeemed for gin or whisky miniatures in the distillery when found. The distillery are encouraging visitors and locals to take a stroll around the beautiful, historic city over the Easter break and search for clues at the same time.

Once participants have found any or all of their hidden posters, they must take a selfie with them, then pop along to the distillery to claim their prize(s). They can choose a gin or whisky mini of their choice by showing one of the distillery’s tour guides their selfie. It’s as easy as that! Although dogs and under 18’s cannot participate, the distillery will have plenty of treats and chocolate on hand for them to enjoy for joining in the fun.

Visitors are encouraged to book into one of Stirling Distillery’s award-winning gin or whisky experiences at the end of the Easter hunt to try out their range of spirits before selecting their prizes.

*T&C’s: Prizes are until stock lasts, one mini per person, per location. A maximum of four mini’s per person, with the validation of prizes at the discretion of the distillery manager.
