Dewar’s: ‘Official Scotch Whisky of the U.S. Open’
As if the quality of the golf wasn’t enough, now there is a whole new reason to enjoy the 121st U.S. Open Championship this year, June 17-20, 2021, at Torrey Pines in San Diego with the news that Dewar’s has become the official Scotch Whisky of the U.S. Open.
“Dewar’s Scotch Whisky, like the game itself, can trace its prestigious lineage to the windswept dunes and lush valleys of Scotland,” said Mike Davis, CEO of the USGA. “It’s an honor to partner with an iconic brand with a rich history that is often associated with the game. We look forward to collaborating with Dewar’s on new experiences for U.S. Open Championship fans.”
Revered by whisky drinkers around the world, Dewar’s has won more than 1,000 international awards for quality and taste, making it the most-awarded blended Scotch Whisky on the planet.
“Dewar’s and the U.S. Open Championship share many of the same values rooted in a passion for the game and an embrace of its spirit of sportsmanship, authenticity and camaraderie. We are truly delighted to partner with the U.S. Open Championship to bring exciting and memorable experiences to fans around this special event,” commented Brian Cox, Vice President of Dewar’s North America.
Speaking to Kingdom, Cox went on to explain: ‘’Integral to our the partnership commitment with USGA, Dewar’s will produce a special limited-edition commemorative bottle each year. Our first, for this year’s Championship, will be a 19-year-old Scotch Whisky that has been double-aged and finished exclusively in the finest first-fill American ex-bourbon casks, with part of the proceeds going to the benefit of the USGA Foundation. Released in the last week of May and available from the lead-up to the championship through the final round on Father’s Day, the Champions Edition strikes rich notes of honey, toffee and vanilla.’’
