The next time you enjoy a glass of Grant’s whisky, you might find yourself discovering a little bit more about your family – even if they aren’t around.

The promotion, developed by communications agency Bray Leino, is running across 528,000 70 centilitres and one litre Family Reserve bottles and offers a £10 (€12.63) voucher to use at genealogy website findmypast.co.uk.

Is there any better way to celebrate an anniversary than organising a week-long party and drinking a cold beer? Probably not, at least for Coopers Brewery, the Australian beer maker which is controlled by the eponymous family.
