Glengoyne Whisky to sponsor Scottish Open 2019

The Scottish whisky company has announced that it will sponsor the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open for a second time following the success of the one-year deal at the 2018 championship.

Glengoyne Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky’s largest sponsorship to date, the deal is set to include pouring rights at all bars and hospitality spaces on the course throughout the four-day golf tournament.

UK managing director at Ian Macleod Distillers, Neil Boyd, said: “Continuing our partnership as ‘Official Spirit’ of the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open made perfect sense. We enjoyed a very successful first year and we’re delighted to be returning again to the championship.”

Taking place at The Renaissance Club outside North Berwick from 11 to 14 July, spectators and golfers will have the opportunity to sample a variety of releases from the Glengoyne Distillery including 10, 12, and 18 Year Old.

The Championship’s Robert Gordon said: “It’s fantastic to have Glengoyne back as our spirit sponsor. Their first year with us set the foundations for a strong future relationship and they continue to bring together two great Scottish traditions – whisky and golf. I look forward to raising a dram or two to toast of another successful championship.”
