JOSH DUHAMEL/2010 DRAMBUIE PURSUIT COMPETITION

With numerous movie and television roles under his belt, Josh Duhamel will bring his intensity and charisma to the Scottish Highlands next May by participating in an endurance challenge that is not for the faint of heart.  Josh will compete in the 2010 Drambuie Pursuit, an epic outdoor adventure race across the wild terrain of the Scottish Highlands – and he’s looking for adventurous Americans to join Team Josh! 

Fans can sign up for a chance to join Josh’s team at www.PursuitOf1745.com.  From speedboat racing and whitewater rafting, to archery and mountain climbing, Team Josh will enjoy the experience of a lifetime as they race in the footsteps of the legendary Bonnie Prince Charlie, for whom Drambuie was originally crafted.
After a failed attempt at taking over the British throne in 1745, the Prince left to his loyal subjects the secret recipe for Drambuie. Each year, teams from around the globe celebrate the Prince’s ambitious journey by trekking through a rugged 100-mile race course retracing his voyage. In May 2010, fifteen international teams of four will compete head-to-head in the challenging race across Scotland.  As the captain of one of the U.S. teams, Josh is currently seeking applicants to join his team of modern rebels.
As part of Josh’s participation in the Drambuie Pursuit, a charitable donation will be made to The Pat Tillman Foundation, which was founded in honor of former Arizona Cardinals player Pat Tillman, who put his NFL career on hold in 2002 in order to join the U.S. Army alongside his brother, Kevin, in the wake of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks.  Pat died during a three-year term of service in Afghanistan, but his legacy of leadership and civic action lives on. More information: www.pattillmanfoundation.org.

About DRAMBUIE
DRAMBUIE was created more than 260 years ago exclusively for Prince Charles Edward Stuart of Scotland.  It is a unique combination of aged Scotch whiskies, heather honey and a blend of herbs and spices; a recipe kept secret since 1745.  From the Gaelic “an dram buidheach” – the drink that satisfies – DRAMBUIE is enjoyed by those who appreciate its timeless, yet distinctive taste.  DRAMBUIE can be served on the rocks, in classic cocktails such as the Rusty Nail®, or more contemporary long drinks such as the DRAMBUIE and Sod.
