2017 Montrose Triathlon Prize Sponsors
14 May 2017: With 21 days to go until the 2017 Montrose Triathlon, we would like to introduce you to some of our event sponsors and, just to give those taking part a little more incentive to train that bit harder, we will start with this year’s prize sponsors! We are very grateful to all our sponsors – simply, the event would not be possible without them so please take time to read all about them and support our local businesses where you can.
Sponsoring the Montrose Triathlon for a 4th year The Park and The Links Hotels are again providing a voucher for dinner, bed and breakfast for two guests for four lucky winners of the Montrose Triathlon.
The hotels are both very centrally located and provide an excellent base to explore Angus further, whether it be a trip to the Angus Glens, some of our wonderful castles or a blast round some of the superb golf courses we have locally.
Recently voted “One of the World’s Best Vodkas” by GQ Magazine, we are very honoured to call Arbikie Highland Estates an event sponsor for the third consecutive year.
For those of you who are not aware of the brand, Arbikie grow, distil, mature and bottle a family of super-premium spirits at their unique single-estate distillery and farm which is situated about 6 miles south of Montrose. They now produce (potato) vodka, ‘Kirsty’s Gin’, ‘AK’s Gin’ and a Chilli Vodka. They are also quietly maturing their own whisky too.
The potatoes and barley used to distil the spirits are grown on the farm so there is true field to bottle traceability. To find out more visit www.arbikie.com.
