Photo entry #2 - whisky lover Teboho Teboho: My name is Teboho. I’m 32 yrs come from Soweto, I’m trying to break into the business world – the liquor industry to be exact. The picture was taken at a friends picnic party. I’m a big whiskey fan and when I say big I mean that I’m really big on whiskey and the tastes it brings to food and the joy it brings to people and the way it livens up a good cigar. I love hosting parties and would love to be one of the few to have that sought after bottle of liquid gold Alpha, I would really be happy to win that bottle.
Photo Entry #3 - Zikhona having fun with friends Zikhona: The photo I sent represent the fun I like to have with my friends….imagine the suprise on the faces when I show them a bottle of The Glenlivet Alpha because we always wanted to taste it ever since we read Thembisa Kani’s tweets about the will make me the coolest among them
Photo Entry #4 - Conrad captures the beauty of the Cape coast Conrad: I am a Capetonian and love my city and the beauty and bounty of nature.
It was such a beautiful morning and enjoying the beautiful blue water and savouring the crisp salty sea air reminded me of relaxing with a fantastic whisky after a long day at work.
I hope you enjoy the photo as much as I do and have a great week!
Photo Entry #5 - @WhiskyGeekSA's spotlight on the Alpha in The Glenlivet range @WhiskyGeekSA: My entry for #TheGlenlivetAlpha competition! @fr1day @TheGlenlivetSA Silhouettes are of the existing Glenlivet range
Photo Entry #6 - Spot the Alpha in Mozambique Ywain: I am by no means an expert, but I am known to enjoy a whisky or two.

To drink good whisky cannot be done alone, and fortunately everyone’s pallet is different. As a result drinking a fine whisky like The Glenlivet is definitely noticed by all!

The good news is that since the price has come down a bit, I am now able to buy less scotch whisky blends like Chivas Regal, Johnnie Walker, J&B, Black Bottle, and The Famous Grouse, and treat myself with this fine scotch whisky single malt – The Glenlivet!

What a fine treat to introduce The Glenlivet Alpha to the paradise lagoon in Bilene, Mozambique. Under lock and key (of course), The Glenlivet Alpha will be joining by siblings The Glenlivet 12 year, The Glenlivet Nadurra 16 year and the older sister The Glenlivet 18 year old. To elevate a great day into a perfect memory, a dram of The Glenlivet Alpha will transform the moment to heaven on earth.

Photo Entry #7 - Adrian living and loving life Adrian: I’m a life loving individual who takes every opportunity to do something awesome, a good life is not measured in how much wealth you have but how much wealth you have had in experiences and memories.

Being from Cape Town allows me all these experiences right on my door step. Love a good whiskey with friends and family as there is nothing better than a good quality whiskey after a long day of living life!!!

Photo Entry #8 - Conrad's hang-bridge adventures Conrad: Every bottle of whisky I open is a journey of discovery and adventure, the Glenlivet Alpha will be especially so as I believe this is what the distillery wanted the drinker to experience. See attached a photo taken on my recent honeymoon trip to Stormsriver Mouth – crossing those hangbridges one can’t help to feel like an adventurer, like Indiana Jones, here’s to future whisky discoveries!
