It’s a time for giving...

It’s a time for giving...

..and a time for getting.


Good afternoon everybody and despite being at least a fortnight late, it’s time for our annual raffle in aid of the local food bank (Edinburgh NE)

It’s pretty basic stuff, give us a quid and we will give you a ticket.

The draw takes place on the evening of Hogmanay and one lucky winner (actually maybe two or more - last years prize haul was a bit silly) will claim a big pile of booze and booze related ephemera pulled from the back of our office.

At the moment the prize consists of..

1 X 75cl Brooklyn Hand & Seal Barley Wine (BQE2014)

1 X 75cl  Cantillon Fou Foune Apricot Lambic (bottled this August)

1 X Lost in Leith Glass (donated by Campervan)

1 X 75cl Lost in Leith Brett PIls (donated by Campervan)

1 X 75cl Lost in Leith Jasmine Berliner (donated by Campervan)

1 X 75cl bottle of 3 Fonteinen Zenne y Frontera Sherry Cask Lambic (donated by DaveyW)

4 X 33cl bottles of pre-aged Orval 16/10/19 (donated by Joe Dick)


Not bad for starters - but hopefully we can improve on that. We are going to openly solicit PRIZE DONATIONS.

Are you a rep who wants to get your product some positive buzz? Maybe you are regretting buying a full case of that hyped pastry stout and could bear with parting with a couple of tins. Do you have doublers of lambics that you don’t really need? - GIVE THEM TO US and we will convert them into hard cash for a local charity that could really do with it.

So we will update the above list regularly and hopefully (with your help) we can get it looking rather special.


Finally, although you have less time to buy tickets, perhaps we can pick up the slack by making blocks of ten tickets available HERE. - We will email you your numbers and add them to the pot and you don’t even have to get off your arse
