I give you $25,000, you give me a barrel... Answered

I am, by dint of geography, unable to enter the Jack Daniel's Contest.

I do, though, have a rather good idea, which I think would have a decent chance of winning, if presented properly.

Here's the deal - you can have the idea, for free.  But, if you win the $25,000 grand prize, you must make a serious attempt to get the barrel to me in the UK.  If you "only" win first or second, then all I want from you is a polite "thank you".

There's a catch, though - I will not give this idea to any one person.  I will give it to everybody who asks for it by PM.

Nobody will know how many people have been given my idea, and it is down to everybody who asks to present the idea in their own video, in their own style.

You can comment if you want, maybe add your own ideas if you are also from an ineligible location, but I will only give the idea by return of PM.

I think he has plans for it, maybe related to his Whiskey Still Ible?

Haha, no - it's just a cool thing, but mainly a hook into getting folk to read this topic.

Dang, moonshine has so many uses too. Well, let's hope it works well. Any plans for something to do with the barrel if you get it?

If you don't, you can always get a wine barrel from the Wine Country when you visit San Francisco.

Step 1 - persuade Kitewife that we need it.

Step 2 - think of something cool to do with it.

We can't get one from SF, the excess baggage costs would kill us.

I guess not. I suppose you can always settle for a barrel from a famous UK brewery though.

Sorry Kiteman,
but sadly I can't enter the contest either,
but that's cause I'm 20...
Oh, well there's next year!

Why not find a friend who is 21, and put their name on the paperwork!

Hey, you'd have to share the $25k with them as well!

I can live without the barrel, I just wanted my idea made real somewhere (I'd do it myself in the UK, but I have commitments that make that a silly idea in this financial climate (the UK hasn't been in a worse financial state for the last sixty years, apparently).

You should hear the feathers being spat at HQ, where nobody is eligible to even enter, let alone win.
