Diamonds are a girl’s best friend at duty free retailer

Diamonds are a girl’s best friend at duty free retailer

It’s said that diamonds are a girl’s best friend and that is definitely the case for a very lucky grandmother of eight from South Auckland.

Earlier this week Malia Jahnke, 58, was presented with a stunning 1ct diamond valued at $7,500 NZD by Triple Rock Vodka Director, Stuart Williamson.

Jahnke was the winner of a Diamond Promotion which was exclusive to The Loop Duty Free at Auckland Airport. To qualify for the draw, shoppers had to purchase a bottle of any of the unique Triple Rock vodka between December and February.

When Malia made her ‘lucky’ purchase she was travelling to Samoa with her daughter, son in law and seven grand children.

Malia says; “I’ve spent my life raising my children and have never won anything before. I am grateful to Triple Rock and The Loop Duty Free for giving me this opportunity. I will most likely have the diamond made into a ring at some stage but in the meantime, I have someone storing it securely for me.”

Triple Rock, Director, Stuart Williamson says of the win; “We were absolutely delighted that the diamond went to a New Zealand winner and it couldn’t have gone to a more deserving person than Malia. Triple Rock is a young brand and we felt this promotion was a fantastic way to cause a little bit of a stir and pique peoples interest in our unique range of vodka. I even had people messaging me on Facebook about it and how keen they were to win!”

Tom Byrne, General Manager, The Loop Duty Free New Zealand said; “Our brand philosophy is underpinned by creativity and we strongly believe that experience is everything that’s why we jumped at the chance to partner with Triple Rock for this unique promotion. A 1ct diamond was an amazing prize! Congratulations to Malia who is a very worthy winner.”

Gordon Campbell: On What We Could Do For Hong Kong, If Only We Dared

There has been something repulsive about PM Jacinda Ardern’s assurances that our joint 5 Eyes criticism of China’s actions over Hong Kong – and China’s harsh reaction – are all well understood on both sides. According to Ardern, it has been a case of us saying the sort of things we’ve said before, them acknowledging our need to do so, and then them responding much as we would expect them to do. All neat and tidy. Frankly, if all of this is merely virtue signalling on our part, and huffy declarations of independence on their part, then what’s the point of this diplomatic dance..? More>>
