A SCOTTISH whisky company has announced it will sponsor the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open for a second year, following the success of an initial one-year deal at the 2018 championship.

The sponsorship is the biggest for Glengoyne Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky to date and includes pouring rights at all bars and hospitality spaces on course.

The deal this year will once again see Glengoyne as the event’s “official spirit”. Glengoyne will provide the house pour at all house and hospitality bars across the course throughout the four-day tournament, which takes place from July 11 to 14 at The Renaissance Club in North Berwick.

Glengoyne, which is situated close to Loch Lomond, runs its spirit through the slowest whisky stills in Scotland. Over the four days at The Open, spectators and golfers alike will be able to enjoy a variety of award-winning releases from the Glengoyne Distillery, including 10, 12, and 18 Year Old.

Neil Boyd, UK managing director at Ian Macleod Distillers, said: “We enjoyed a very successful first year and we’re delighted to be returning again to the championship, providing superb quality drams for whisky fans and novices alike to enjoy around the course.”

Robert Gordon from the Championship 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.”
