As many of you will know, one of my current favorite whiskies is Jura Prophecy. I had no idea that the Jura distillery also owns a writer’s retreat. I should be paying more attention to what Ken MacLeod writes about. Still, thanks to SFX, I know now. And I also know that you (if you are a UK resident) can enter one of those ridiculously simple competitions that is really a prize draw, the prize for which is a free stay at that very place.
It occurs to me that if I win it I won’t be able to afford to get to Jura, but maybe they’d send me some free whisky instead.
