Idaho-Natives First American Team to Win Drambuie Pursuit

"Team Current TV" Take Top Prize at Legendary Outdoor Adventure Race

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - May 7, 2008) - Drambuie today announced that Idaho-based Team Current TV, a group of smokejumping wildfire-fighting parachutists, is the first-ever American team to win the Drambuie Pursuit in Scotland. The Drambuie Pursuit is a once-in-a-lifetime outdoor adventure race that retraces the voyage of Bonnie Prince Charlie, for whom the Drambuie elixir was crafted in 1745.

The Drambuie Pursuit saw ten teams of four adults race through 100 miles of punishing terrain across the Scottish Highlands. Teams competed in grueling tests of spirit, including speedboat and dirt buggy races, hill climbing, kayaking, whitewater rafting, biking and other feats of endurance on their journey from the Isle of Skye to Inverness. The race celebrates the voyage of Scotland's famed Bonnie Prince Charlie as he escaped across the Scottish Highlands after a defeated attempt to regain the British throne. To thank his loyal followers, Prince Charlie gave them the only thing he had left: the secret recipe for Drambuie.

"We are ecstatic to be the first American team to win the Drambuie Pursuit," said Scott Logan, team captain of Team Current TV. "After months of training, preparing and toasting with Drambuie we knew that we had a winning team! It was truly the adventure of a lifetime and we wish that everyone could enjoy this amazing opportunity to see Scotland in the most exciting possible way."

"Drambuie liqueur's history of passion, rebellion and adventure could not be better illustrated than at the Drambuie Pursuit," said Valerie Fender, Marketing Manager for Drambuie. "We are delighted with the outcome of the Drambuie Pursuit, and we look forward to continuing this tradition for many years to come."
