Whiskey Taste Tester Needed – And, Yes, You Can Apply

When you're growing up, you're led to believe that you should aspire to be an astronaut, zookeeper, pilot or footballer. As you get older you realise that you won't be going to space anytime soon and you certainly won't ever get paid as much as footballers do - and that, actually, you're pretty happy with much simpler career aspirations.

Like being a whiskey taster? Yes. Absolutely, yes.

You'll be happy to hear that a company is in need of people to taste their new flavoured whiskeys for free. New flavours include Tennessee Honey - 'smooth and sweet. A little bit of honey. A whole lot of Jack' - and Tennessee Fire, which promises the 'smoothness of Old No. 7 with fiery hot cinnamon liqueur'.

If you're chosen you won't just get to try a mouthful (as many taste tests disappointingly do), but actually a whole bottle - y'know, just to 'make sure'.

The only catch to the free bottle of Jack is that you'll have to send in a review to say what you thought afterwards, but that's easy. Considering how many of us can rant on about something on Twitter or TripAdvisor these days, it should be a total walk in the park.

The opportunity, which comes from product testing company TestersKeepers, won't be available forever. You have until 31 January to show you're game. All you have to do is head to this website and fill in your details to register your interest.

Not long ago Scottish whisky company Grant's served up a similar opportunity of a lifetime, recruiting a new global drinks ambassador.

The brand asked people to send in their applications by posting a drink they've created (including Grant's among the ingredients, of course) on social media, before they would whittle a shortlist of 20 down.

Those people would then be taken to the original distillery in Dufftown to compete in challenges, before the final three were chosen and sent off to: Poland, Israel, and India; South Africa, the Nordics, and Colombia; or Russia, Taiwan, and France.

But this Jack Daniel's opportunity is much, much simpler, and you don't need to be a drinks expert to be in with a chance. You just need patience. Simply head on over to the website, fill in your details, then wait to see if you get chosen.

Then you can get back to training to be a pilot or saving the world or whatever.
