Scottish Blended Whisky brand Dewar’s has launched a 19-year-old whisky to celebrate the start of the 2021 US Open golf tournament.
To mark the start of the US Open Championship, held from 14-20 June 2021 at Torrey Pines Golf Course in San Diego, California, the brand has released The Champions Edition, a 19-year-old bottling finished in American ex-Bourbon casks.
Brian Cox, vice-president of Dewar’s North America, said: “Designed for golf and whisky aficionados alike, this first-of-its-kind blend is inspired by our exciting partnership with the US Open, as well as our sporting legacy and commitment to supporting ‘champions’ in all endeavours.”
Created by Dewar’s master blender Stephanie Macleod, the expression blends double-aged grain and single malt whiskies. The resulting liquid offers notes of honey, toffee, vanilla and ripe cherries.
It comes in a silver bottle design to reflect the US Open trophy. Part of the proceeds from the sale of the bottle will be given to the USGA Foundation.
As the official blended Scotch whisky of the US Open Championship golf tournament, the brand will release annual limited edition products to mark the US Open until 2023.
