Ryder Cup legend Colin Montgomerie toasted the perfect blend of whisky and golf at Gleneagles recently as he unveiled a rare Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ryder Cup Limited Edition Scotch Whisky.
Montgomerie, one of Scotland’s greatest players and a winning Ryder Cup Captain, helped launch the special edition of the luxury blend, which had a bottle run of just 2,350 with each being individually numbered, making it a rare and unique keepsake or gift. The distinctive packaging and bottle design depicts the unforgettable view of the iconic Gleneagles Hotel and celebrates the return to Scotland after 41 years of The Ryder Cup, the world’s leading match play competition. Nick Temperley, Head of Diageo Reserve Brands, GB said, “The return of the competition to Scotland is a rare experience, so we wanted to create an opportunity for others to mark it with a commemorative Scotch whisky. This striking new bottle will give progressive whisky and golf fans alike the chance to experience the pinnacle blend from Johnnie Walker while celebrating the prestigious sporting event.” The new blend has a RRP of £225.
