Smokehead Islay Whisky is 'dreaming of a wild(ish) Christmas'

Islay whisky brand Smokehead has launched its 'Dreaming of a Wild(ish) Christmas' campaign to get fans into the festive spirit.

The single malt whisky brand will be bringing its own take on winter festivities to social media, with Smokehead brand ambassador Mikey Sam hitting Facebook and Instagram with some out-of-the-box Christmas cocktails to try at home.

Mikey will be mixing thing up using the Smokehead Skull Gift Tin, which includes the Smokehead core range in miniature 5cl bottles: Original, High Voltage and Rum Rebel.

Iain Weir, Smokehead brand director, said: "There's no better time of the year than Christmas to enjoy an unapologetically bold smoky whisky. Many other aspects of the festive period will be different this year, but that definitely doesn't change!

"We know our loyal Smokeheads will be looking forward to some seasonal drams, so we're excited to be able to offer our range of Smokehead whiskies to enjoy our variety of bold and smoky expressions.

"Whether buying for a personal gift, or eyeing up that faultless present for a peat-loving pal, we're encouraging everyone to take the leap this Christmas to see if you are, in fact, a Smokehead."

Smokehead whiskies are available to purchase from, specialist retailers and major multiples.
