Loch Lomond Whiskies, the official spirit partner of The Open, has unveiled two limited-edition single malt whiskies to mark the 150th year of the tournament.
The independent distiller crafted Loch Lomond The Open Special Edition 2022 in partnership with golfer Colin Montgomerie, who worked closely with Master Blender Michael Hendry to create a whisky worthy of The Open’s historic anniversary.
Completing the duo is Loch Lomond The Open Course Edition 2022, which pays homage to all the golf courses where The Open has taken place, from the first ever championship in Prestwick in 1860 to St Andrews where the 2022 event will be held.
Andrew Jack, Head of Whisky Marketing at Loch Lomond Whiskies, said “The Open is a such a prestigious event, bringing together some of the world’s best golfers. At Loch Lomond Whiskies we are very proud to show our support as the official spirit partner of this momentous anniversary.
“The ties between golf and whisky in Scotland date back generations. Our two new, limited edition single malts are highly valuable additions to our whisky portfolio, demonstrating the breadth of distillation techniques Loch Lomond Whiskies is capable of. We’re confident both expressions will appeal to a variety of tastes, budgets, and interests, particularly in the lead up to Father’s Day in June.”
The 150th Open will be played on the historic links of The Old Course, St Andrews, this July.
