Glengoyne whisky is selling a limited edition jigsaw, which is ideal for those looking to switch off during the UK lockdown.

With many people looking for ways to spend their new-found spare time, Glengoyne Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky has created a limited-edition jigsaw puzzle to be enjoyed as the perfect companion while savouring a good dram.

The 500-piece puzzle features a special painting by celebrated Scottish artist John Lowrie Morrison (Jolomo), entitled “Spring Blossoms at Glengoyne Distillery.”

Offering a chance to unplug from technology, Glengoyne’s jigsaw will take approximately 4-6 hours to complete, and it was created to celebrate the brand’s own unique connection to time as Scotland’s slowest distilled malt – unhurried since 1833 – which helps create the flavour of the spirit.

Where to buy the jigsaw

Priced at £10, the puzzle will be available through the brand’s online shop, with a donation of £1 from each purchase going to drinks charities The Drinks Trust and The Ben – which both provide care and support for those who work in the drinks industry.

The bespoke game announcement comes as jigsaw manufacturers around the world report huge spikes in sales, with the demand for puzzles higher than during the festive season and many retailers completely selling out.

Katy Muggeridge, senior brand manager for Glengoyne said: “Many of us are obviously finding ourselves with more time on our hands right now, and time has always played such a big role in our whisky making at Glengoyne.

“We hope this limited-edition jigsaw will provide fans of our whisky with some special at-home entertainment during a difficult time, as well as offering a special keepsake from one of the nation’s leading artists.”

Prizes to be won

Jolomo spent weekends painting at Glengoyne Distillery during his student years attending the Glasgow School of Art.

The “Spring Blossoms at Glengoyne Distillery” puzzle will be available, while stocks last, with any 70cl bottle of whisky purchased on Glengoyne.com for £10.

Those lucky enough to also find one of 10 golden jigsaw pieces up for grabs in their order will also win a pair of tickets to a Glengoyne Wee Tasting Tour, redeemable once the distillery re-opens to visitors.
