What’s your dream come true?

If you’re like me, a dream come true would be a full cask of fine single malt Scotch.

But Glenfiddich is looking for Canadians to divulge their ultimate dream, and to be part of the bottling of a rare single malt whisky.

As part of the “One Day You Will” campaign, 20 finishing casks will make their way to 10 cities in Canada this year to be inscribed by the public. People are being asked to complete the sentence “One day I will …” on the cask of Glenfiddich Limited Edition “Cask of Dreams” whisky.

After a cross-country tour, which hits Calgary April 19 and 20, the casks will head back to Scotland to be filled and finished for three months.

And, lucky us, the finished product will be shipped back to Canada in time for the holidays.

“When you write your dream on these casks, you’re not only sharing a piece of yourself with Canada, but you become a part of Glenfiddich’s long-running history,” says Beth-Anne Perry, Glenfiddich Brand Manager.

“The dreams of Scottish pioneers are what shaped Glenfiddich and we can’t wait to bring Canada’s dreams back to Dufftown.”

And for one lucky whisky lover, there is the chance to visit the distillery in Dufftown, Scotland to witness the bottling of the limited edition whisky.

Just head to the Glenfiddich site between March 1 and July 31 and complete the same sentence. “One day I will …”

The winning entrant will get to make the trip, along with his or her father or mentor.

The Cask of Dreams has already made it through Winnipeg, for Robbie Burns Day and the 200th anniversary of the Selkirk settlement, but: gets rolling across the country in March:

Toronto, Ontario – March 21, 22
St. John’s, Newfoundland – March 29, 30
Halifax, Nova Scotia – April 2, 3
Fredriction, New Brunswick – April 4, 5
Montreal, Quebec – April 10, 11
Ottawa, Ontario – April 12, 13
Regina, Saskatchewan – April 16, 17
Calgary, Alberta – April 19, 20
Vancouver, British Columbia – April 26, 27

Keep dreaming, scoundrels
