Win with Vinspire's Birthday Charity Raffle!


Happy birthday to us! 

Well, nearly - Vinspire turns one on 25th March, and we're pretty darn excited about it. We realise how lucky we've been - spending a whole year discovering loads of delicious drinks -  and so we've decided to celebrate our birthday by doing something for people who haven't been as fortunate, by raising money for communities that don't even have the luxury of running water.

To that end, we're doing an online charity raffle for the incredible One Difference water project run by the amazing One Foundation charity.

Take a look at our JustGiving page: we have an incredible NINE prizes up for grabs - from wine to gin, from rum to whiskey - and all you have to do to enter is donate a minimum of £1. Just a quid! You can, of course, donate more if you'd like to (we'd like that very much indeed.)*

We're keeping the raffle open for a week - until 3pm on Friday 28th March - and we'll be picking winners at random shortly after then. And we'd love for you to tell all your friends they could win some stonkingly good booze at the same time as helping a wonderful cause - just share the JustGiving page or this blog post on your social media of choice.

Just one thing - please don't GiftAid your donation if you want to enter the raffle. GiftAid can only be used when you're not entering a competition/getting something out of your donation - so if you do add GiftAid then we aren't able to enter you into the raffle. Sorry, guys!

So, let's have a look at the prizes!

1. A Case of British beers from Best of British Beer. These guys have been high on our list of faves for a while, and they've just gone up yet another notch in our estimation by agreeing to give one lucky winner a case of beer - that's right, a whole case! All of their beers are premium-quality, crafted with love, and delicious to drink.

2. A bottle of Bulldog Gin. We reviewed Bulldog last year and thoroughly enjoyed the refreshing, no-nonsense taste of their gin, and now one of you lucky donors gets a bottle of it to try too!

3. A bottle of El Dorado 5yo rum. We are big fans of this deliciously tropical rum, and we're not surprised by its array of awards. You can try it for yourself if you win!



4. Two bottles of wine from Hattie's Wine. We have both the sensuous Honoro Garnacha (which was served at last year's Oscars!) and the Miraval rose - yep, that's the one owned by Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie that sold out in about five seconds when it was first released.



5. A bottle of Bulleit Rye Whiskey - the award-winning (a gold medal at San Francisco, no less), small-batch, straight rye whiskey that is rich, smooth and spicy. Yes please.



6. Two bottles of the infamous Birthday Cake vodka from Revolution Bars -  these lovely guys couldn't let us celebrate our birthday without some birthday cake vodka! This stuff is the best.



7. A bottle of Appleton Estate rum - Our Lucienne fell head over heels with this stuff when she used it to make rum butter pancakes a couple of weeks back. You really don't want to miss a chance of winning this.



8. A wine box utility pot made by the amazing Sarah at Baxter and Snow - oh yes! These utter beauts sell out so fast when they become available, and we are absolutely thrilled Sarah has donated one to the cause. Have a look at her Facebook page to see her other incredible creations, and obviously donate to be in with a chance to win this!



9. A signed copy of Richard Bray's brand new book Salt and Old Vines - tales of winemaking in southern France. It's not even out yet (it's released on 17th April) but the lovely Richard has donated a copy for one of you lucky guys to win.

So that's all we've got to tell you - now all that remains is for you to get your quids at the ready and donate to help One Difference and celebrate our birthday!

* Terms and conditions: UK entrants only, must be over 18 to enter, and we may need to verify your age before we send your prize. If you do not come forward to claim your prize within one week then we will give it to someone else, sorry! No one in the Vinspire team is allowed to win, and late entrants will not be counted. Sorry again. We'll pick winners at random and leave a message on the Just Giving page announcing who has won, and what your lucky prize is!
