DEWAR’s Releases U.S. Open ‘Champions Edition’ Whisky
DEWAR’S Scotch Whisky announced the release of its 2022 commemorative super premium U.S. Open bottle, dubbed “The Champions Edition.”
The 2022 edition, crafted by three-time award-winning Master Blender Stephanie Macleod, is a 19-year-old Scotch Whisky double-aged with an extra-matured finish exclusively in ex-Bourbon, new American Oak casks and ex-Rye Whiskey casks.
Comprised of up to 40 different single malt and grain whiskies and inspired by the rich legacy and ethos of the U.S. Open, “From Many, One”, this celebratory bottle highlights that from many casks, one champion blend emerges.
As part of the multi-year agreement with the United States Golf Association (USGA), DEWAR’S will produce a special limited-edition commemorative bottle for each year’s U.S. Open, to be sold online and at all fine wines and spirits retailers, as the official Scotch whisky and proud supporter of the US Open Championship. This year’s tournament is scheduled for June 16-19 at The Country Club in Brookline, Mass.
A special addition to the 122nd U.S. Open Championship this year is the “DEWAR’S Lemon Wedge”, a twist on the classic Highball, which will serve as the official cocktail of the U.S. Open. The recipe features DEWAR’S 12-year-old whisky, club soda, fresh lemonade and is topped with a golf tee pick and lemon wedge for garnish. The DEWAR’S Lemon Wedge will be offered to patrons on-site and will be served in a special edition US Open memorabilia cup in hospitality venues and ticketed facilities across the grounds.
For those who cannot make it to the course but want to raise a toast to the game with the signature DEWAR’S Lemon Wedge cocktail at home, DEWAR’S has created a cocktail kit via Cocktail Courier available nationwide, see HERE.
In addition to this partnership, a portion of the proceeds from the custom silver bottle, that serves as a nod to the U.S. Open® trophy, will benefit the USGA Foundation, which celebrates and serves the game of golf and all who love and play it.
To accompany the new bottle and signature cocktail, the brand has created a suite of DEWAR’S accoutrements to celebrate the season. From a signature DEWAR’S golf cooler created by Vessel to a custom DEWAR’S golf cart, which will be serving cocktails at events through the final round on Father’s Day, the brand is putting its mark on the game of golf in full swing.
DEWAR’S “The Champions Edition” can be found in all fine wine and spirit retailers or online HERE from now through the end of the tournament.
