Similar to geo-caching, but with whisky, a trail of Angels’ Nectar Whisky Caches will be hidden across Speyside during the Spirit of Speyside Whisky Festival.

The first to find each Angels’ Nectar Whisky Cache will be rewarded with a 200ml bottles of Angels’ Nectar Blended Malt Scotch Whisky, perfect for sharing.
