You will recall the challenge we issued back in May this year when we appealed to our readers and Facebook fans to try to find samples of the commemorative tins that were created to celebrate the new millennium; we are delighted to tell you that we have managed to find one of each tin. Even better, each of the tins is in superb condition and they will be on display in Huntly for everyone to enjoy.

You may also recall that one of these tins was at the centre of the remarkable story about how one of our shortbread tins led to the donation of over £250,00 to Gordon Schools in Huntly.

The original challenge offered a VIP Tour of the Factory, Bistro, Viewing Gallery and Shop for each of the people who’s tins were selected by Dean’s.  Last week the four winners visited the factory to be welcomed by Bill Dean, Managing Director of Dean’s who was delighted to show them how the factory runs and the products are manufactured.

In the picture below you will see the winners who were kind enough to donate their tins to our visitor centre, they are: (From Left to Right) Mrs Sheila Cobban (Huntly Castle Tin), Mrs Johnstone (The Elgin Bridge Tin), Raye Marcus (The Simpson Building Gordon Schools), Sheena Leslie (Glendronach Distillery), also pictured in the background is Bill Dean, Managing Director of Dean’s.

Thank you to each of them for taking part and to all of the other people who contacted us, we are delighted with the response.  Watch out for more interesting challenges, competitions, promotions and product launches in the future.
