Tennent's is offering fans the chance to win a staycation in a lighthouse in Scotland, as it launches Tennent's Light beer in shops and supermarkets across the country.

The prize

The lucky winner can take a group of friends on a trip to a lighthouse keeper's cottage, as this prize marks the launch of Tennent’s Light, Scotland’s lowest calorie beer, in shops and supermarket shelves.

The break will give six friends the chance to escape to remote surroundings and get back to basics on the rugged coast.

With stunning scenery, coastal activities, delicious food and of course Tennent’s Light, the trip will be anything but basic from start to finish.

Commenting on the launch and prize, Iain Telford, marketing services manager at Tennent’s, said: “2020 has been a challenging year and with so much time spent at home, we wanted to reward someone with an all-expenses paid trip for them to enjoy with friends or family in Scotland.

"It’s not very often that the opportunity to stay at a lighthouse comes up and we’re looking forward to bringing a bit of light to someone’s year.”

Tennent’s Light is now available in Asda, Sainsbury’s and Morrisons as well as convenience stores across Scotland.

At just 60 calories per 300ml bottle or 114 per pint, Tennent’s Light is based on the brewer’s multi award-winning gluten free recipe. Like all other beers from Wellpark, Tennent’s Light is also vegan.

Like Tennent’s Lager, Tennent’s Light is also brewed using 100 per cent Scottish grown cereals and fresh highland water from Loch Katrine, celebrating Scotland’s larder.

Iain, added: “The planned launch of Tennent’s Light was paused earlier this year as a result of the closure of pubs, bars and restaurants.

"During lockdown we received an increasing number of enquiries from people asking where they could pick up Tennent’s Light in supermarkets and shops after briefly getting a taste for it in bars, particularly with increased demand for lighter options from consumers.

“They asked and we listened, and we’re delighted it’s now available in stores across Scotland, meaning people can now enjoy Tennent’s Light at home or as a pint when returning to the pub.”

How to enter

To land a lighthouse trip, Tennent’s is asking people to head to their social channels to tell them about something that’s brought a bit of light to their year.

As well as one lucky winner, 12 runners-up will receive a four-pack of Tennent’s Light bottles.
