There's no more romantic travel than by train -- passing by mountains at sunset, meeting of beautiful strangers in close quarters, bringing more than 3oz of liquid on board... Now, Hendrick's offers you the chance to experience such railway romance in its homeland with the Royal Scotsman Sweepstakes.
Hendrick's -- which you might know as the premium gin distilled with a unique mix of botanicals before being infused with rose and cucumber -- is giving one lucky winner and a friend a three-day adventure across the Scottish heath aboard the Royal Scotsman, not a kilt-wearing prince with a stronger-than-average back, but rather a luxury locomotive with private cabins, gourmet dining, and an open-deck observation carriage. Throughout your trek, you'll disembark for intrepid day excursions (salmon fishing, hooch tastings...) before heading back to the train for formal dinners, followed by drinks with a local clansman who'll recount stories that bring Scottish history alive, hopefully including the timeless tale of that time one sheep became two. The winning duo will also score a night of luxe lodging in Edinburgh, where, thanks to the 70's greatest boy band, every night is S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y.
For a shot at this all-expenses-paid railway adventure, enter your deets at HendricksGin.com -- it might be the interwebs' most romantic offering since the launch of Chatroulette.
