Competition. Win 2 1st class tickets for the Murtensee Whisky Train (16th April 2011)



On Saturday 16th April the Whisky steam train will depart from Murten BH and take a 5 hour tour around Murtensee. On board will be almost 400 lovers of all things Celtic who will enjoy a leisurely 4 course lunch, including a selection of Scottish cheeses of course, with wine and whisky.

In between stops at small towns around the lake you can wander around the train coaches and visit the whisky tasting carriage, the cigar carriage and the British Cheese Centre carriage.

There will be a stop of almost one hour at Neuchatel where you will be piped off the train to enjoy a stroll around the town before being piped back on to continue the journey.

The party will continue back at Murten with more whisky tasting, bag pipes and dancing (weather permitting).

The British Cheese Centre has two First Class tickets worth CHf 245.00 each to give away to the winners of this competition. There will also be three runners up prizes of CHf 35.00 vouchers for tasting packs to be posted or collected from our market.

All you have to do is send us a true story involving our cheese. It can be a story about you serving our cheese to your friends or work colleagues, memories of the cheese from years gone by or a story about meeting us at one of our events. Use your imagination but please keep it based on a true story and name at least 2 different cheeses within the story. It can be one short paragraph up to a maximum 300 words.

The competition will be judged independently (2 Swiss customers have volunteered) We will publish the winning stories here and on our newsletter and reserve the right to use the stories in any forthcoming books or other publications. Send us your story via the email address on this link.

There are just a few standard tickets for the train available at a cost of CHf 195.00 each. Please email Christoph Dennler to book yours at cde@fass-murten.ch

The Whisky Train home page is here (French and German only - ignore the "fully booked" message, a few extra tickets have since become available)

On a personal note, this was just about the nicest day out I have had so far here (even though I was working). The organisors and passengers, apart from a German group and one Australian guy, were all Swiss and were the nicest people who all had a great time.

Here's a few photos from last year.

That looks like a fantastic trip. Shame I am not back over until the 18th or I may have been tempted to enter.

Just in case anyone was thinking of asking, the closing date is 31st March (It is on the link)

I once ate some cheese. It was nice.
Is about as good as my journalistic skills get. And I'm guessing that's not winning any prizes?

Are these tickets buyable? And where from?

I googled, but got this thread and a load of rubbish about obscure bands and Procul Harem....

The home page is here (I guess I hid it too well up above), it does say they are sold out but an extra carriage has been added so there are a few standard places available at 195.00 each. In terms of having a great day out with pretty decent food in a real party atmosphere it is good value. Email Christof to enquire (he speaks English) and mention me.

And no, I have a few entries already which I am guessing will not be beat by yours. Thanks anyway

It looks interesting. I love Scotland, even if I just drink beer not whisky. A wagon with butter shortbreads would be Heaven on Earth

Are you the same Aussie I met last year? I doubt many EFers are going, last year you were the only native English speaker I met and all tickets are now sold out.

Hi Mike. This will be my first trip on the Whisky Train. So maybe we met at the Highland games. Or are we yet to meet? See you there!
Kev.
