Calling All Wild Spirits For The Talisker Whisky Coastal Challenge By IGO Adventures
Talisker Whiskey, the single malt Scotch Whisky from the shores of the Isle of Skye, is proud to partner with IGO Adventures, the ultimate adventure company founded by Bobby Melville who completed the mighty Talisker Whisky Atlantic Challenge in 2013. Together, they have created a unique whisky tasting weekend like no other along one of the UK’s most dramatic backdrops.
The experience will lead adventure and whisky lovers to the undiscovered rugged coastline in Exmoor National Park providing them with a taste of the Isle of Skye in an equally breath-taking yet more accessible coastal spot, enjoying Talisker Whisky after action-packed days embracing the elements. The three-day excursion draws inspiration from Talisker’s rugged environment on the Isle of Skye and IGO founder, Melville’s life-long passion for endurance and adventure.
Taking place from Friday 19th until Sunday 21st July, the Talisker Whisky Coastal Challenge will feature high-octane activities including a 25km coastal hike or run with an optional 1km swim plus trekking and fitness sessions with the UK’s best loved outdoor fitness company, Be Military Fit. This will be balanced with sun-rise yoga, survival and bush craft skills, photography workshops and open-fire cooking using locally sourced ingredients and freshly caught fish for those simply looking to disconnect and enjoy the outdoors.
At night, challengers will be invited to reunite around the campfire to enjoy Talisker drams, Talisker cocktails using ingredients foraged along the coast and warming Talisker Campfire Hot Chocolates, perfect for unwinding and sharing stories amongst fellow participants under the star-lit sky.
“After the exhilarating physical elements of the challenge, what better way to compliment the weekend than with the distinctive notes of Talisker Whisky. We wanted to create a moment where people can gather, reflect and share stories and we believe that it’s around a warming campfire, with a dram of whisky after a day of adventure where this these things happen best.” – Jason Clark, Brand Ambassador, Talisker
“This trip is a fantastic insight into the worlds of both Talisker and IGO Adventures, providing plenty of opportunities to escape busy city lives, connect with the rugged surroundings of Exmoor as well as enjoying an ultimate whisky tasting experience beside the sea.” – Bobby Melville, Founder, IGO Adventures.
