Given the way 2020 has gone, it certainly would make sense if your upcoming holiday season was anything but ordinary. The folks behind Jameson Irish Whiskey seem to feel this way as well, offering up to fans the chance to win a Jameson Whiskey Tree to decorate their home with as an alternative to the traditional tree.
The Jameson Whiskey Tree, according to those behind it, stands nearly nine feet tall and features a lighting system sporting 130 empty Jameson bottles that light up when you plug the tree in. There’s a limited run of trees that have been produced for this contest – seven to be exact – and those that want to get one must enter a writing contest between now and November 20th, telling the brand why you deserve to bring home one of these.
“Place our Jameson Whiskey Tree in your window and your neighbors will be green with envy, guaranteed,” said Angelica Scibilio, Brand Director of Jameson, in a prepared statement. “We understand the holidays are different this year, and we hope our legendary trees will give a few lucky consumers some extraordinary holiday memories with friends and family.”
The Jameson Whiskey Trees will be delivered the first week of December for those that win one, with each being accompanied by a $45 gift card which can be used for a bottle of Jameson Black Barrel. The holiday theme of this contest is not the only such undertaking out there – Maker’s Mark, for example, is doing one in which the winner gets his or her small town decked out in a bourbon themed “celebration of lights and seasonal cheer.”
