Jacob’s Creek, is working with two of Britain’s best-loved comedians to launch an online competition and deliver moments of laughter to lucky Brits this Father’s Day.

During lockdown, moments of laughter were few and far between and the nation has been craving a dose of pure joy. Australian wine brand, Jacob’s Creek, has partnered with two comedians to launch an online competition to deliver the UK’s most exclusive stand-up comedy performances by ex-Dancing on Ice contestant, Matt Richardson, and Britain’s Got Talent golden buzzer winner, Kojo Anim, inside a 3ft Scotch whisky barrel outside dads’ front doors. The barrels are chosen to celebrate Jacob’s Creek Double Barrel range.

Six lucky participants across the country will receive a complimentary case of wine with Jacob’s Creek Double Barrel Chardonnay, Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.

Brits will simply need to visit Barrel-of-laughs.com to be in with the chance to win the UK’s most intimate comedy performance.

Jacob’s Creek Double Barrel is finished in aged whisky barrels for a richer, deeper, and smoother taste. The Double Barrel range is crafted from superior quality grapes which are first matured in traditional wine barrels. Then, using a unique Double Barrel technique, the wines are finished in aged whisky barrels to build additional layers of complexity.

Lucy Bearman, Brand Director from Jacob’s Creek said: “Now, more than ever, it’s important to find moments of laughter. Humour is therapeutic and a coping mechanism during challenging times. We want to bring joy, excitement and a chuckle or two to fathers and father figures around the country by literally delivering barrels of laughter and our award-winning Jacob’s Creek Double Barrel wine”.
