Customers of JD Wetherspoon pubs could be in with a chance to win £5,000 if they get served a particular item with a certain cocktail pitcher this summer.

People should be looking out for a golden-coloured straw served with the Au Vodka Candy Rosá pitcher to win the cash prize.

It comes as Au Vodka, who makes premium spirits, has teamed up with the British pub chain to give three lucky winners some money.

How to win the Wetherspoons 'golden straw' prize

Charlie Sloth, one of the partial owners of the vodka company, shared some information on an Instagram story to tell people what they needed to look out for, the Daily Star reported.

He said: "For your chance to win £5,000 this summer, just go to Wetherspoons and buy a Au Vodka Candy Rosá and if you find the golden straw, you win £5,000 and me, personally deliver it to you.

"How about that? Now check out that cash!"

The post added: "Three purchase dates/times/pubs will be selected randomly.

"The lucky winners buying the Au Vodka Candy Rosá pitcher who are served with the unique Au Vodka golden-coloured straw at the winning time and location will win a £5,000 prize - Good Luck!"

The promotion excludes pubs in airports, as well as in certain locations such as Beaconsfield, Leicester Square in London, Windsor and the Republic of Ireland.

Only three straws will be available to be served out and the giveaway will run until Saturday, September 30.

Au Vodka was started back in 2016 by friends Charlie Morgan and Jackson Quinn and was recently named the fifth fastest-growing company in the UK according to the Sunday Times.

The friends from Swansea had spotted a gap in the market and now produce tens of thousands of bottles a day.
