The football connection to whisky is continuing. Following Beckham’s launch of Haig, Michael Owen has unveiled the SPEY Limited Edition Single Malt Whisky, developed in partnership with Harvey’s of Edinburgh. Michael has launched two distinctive high quality single malt expressions – The Golden Choice and The Michael Owen Limited Edition which will be sold globally from this month. Both whiskies have been distilled using the finest Scottish ingredients and traditional, handcrafted methods at Harvey’s, Speyside Distillery, near Aviemore in the Cairngorm National Park.
John Harvey McDonough, CEO of Harvey’s of Edinburgh – the company behind the SPEY brand, said, “Michael is a fantastic ambassador for SPEY and we’re delighted to launch these two new whisky expressions in his name. The Golden Choice – developed in honour of the Sport of Kings, Royal Ascot and its Gold Cup event – is a perfect fit with SPEY’s rich Royal heritage and we are now planning exclusive VIP experiences around this release.”
