So you might remember that roughly three months ago there was this competition involving some very tasty Punt Road Cider? Well, the good news is: we didn’t drink the cider! (Seriously big effort, people!)
The bad news? I’ve been totally preoccupied with selling my house, and have been hoarding the stuff at my office, staving off my co-workers from drinking it! So our poor entrants have been left in the lurch as to who will be getting their tasty smackers around the good golden liquid.
Yeah, sorry about that! :S
Anyway, poor excuses aside, it is with much pleasure that I can finally announce the winner of our first ever i8b competition, and the lucky punter who will be walking away with a mixed case of Punt Road’s Pear Cider and Apple Cider!
And the winner is… Karis of Kenmore!
Karis commented on Sarah’s post about the veggie patch, and we were impressed not only by the enthusiasm of the comment, but by the extra info Karis packed into the comment too! Karis is indeed one mad keen herb lover:
“When I started my garden, I was going out everyday to check it. Then my babies started shooting through! I felt like I had pets or children or both! … Apparently borage is really nice in salads if you can suck it up and eat the prickly bits according to my (and apparently Jamie Oliver’s) herb guru Jekka… She has a brilliant recipe for lavender cookies – yes, lavender! Sounds odd I know, but they are amazingly good. I’ve cooked them a few times and tried making different desserts with them. But lavender is my obsession when it comes to herbs…”
You can read Karis’ full comment here. Thanks so much to all who entered, we were so pleased with all of you who got involved, and there were some really entertaining comments – and some downright hilarious ones too (Indy, we’re looking at you!).
A MASSIVE thanks to the team at Punt Road Wines in Victoria. Make sure you give their ciders a go (and their wines, for that matter) — they really are fantastic!
We’ve gotten a lot of great feedback throughout the comp, and we will run future comps over a shorter time period so that we don’t leave you guys hanging so long! And uhhh yeah– we’ll be more prudent with announcing the winners too!
Thanks again guys, and as always, we welcome any feedback!
In cider love,
Julia & the girls at i8b!
