Message In A Bottle.

This must be one of the strangest press releases ever issued by the Scottish Government, nay Executive, in the history of devolution. Since when was the FM signing a raffle prize news?

"FM leaves message in a bottle ... First Minister Alex Salmond today left a signed bottle of 25 year-old whisky to be collected by the 250th visitor to the Talisker distillery in 2009 - Scotland's Year of Homecoming ..."

"Leaving a message" also has a different connotation in some parts of Scotland.
