If you’ve got a hip flask, the chances are you’ve got a favourite drink with which to fill it.
Some may go for whisky or a bit of gin to keep them warm on those cold days, but the search is currently on to find Edinburgh & South East Scotland’s best home-made hip flask fillers.
The Game and Wildlife Conservation Trust is holding the event, as a charity evening, where attendees will have the chance to to taste and judge for themselves.
Regional organiser for Scotland Rory Donaldson said: ‘Sloe gin? Raspberry vodka? Cherry brandy? If you have your own concoction, why not submit it for consideration?
‘If not, why not come along with your friends for a fun-filled night as we sample, savour and announce the winning tipples.’
Those who wish to enter should let the GWCT know by Monday, 22 October.
Rory continued: ‘You will then be required to submit a one litre bottle of your alcohol-based hip flask tipple, along with its recipe, by Sunday 4 November.
‘Tasting and judging will take place at the event on Thursday 8 November 2018, with the winner(s) being announced and prizes awarded on the night.’
The event is taking place at Hampden & Co, at 9 Charlotte Square, Edinburgh, starting at 6pm. Tickets are priced £20 each. There will also be further raffles and competitions on the evening.
The winning recipe(s) will be featured in Scottish Field.
