Dewar's Partners with U.S. Open, Unveils 'Champions Edition' 19 Year Old Whisky

Dewar's Blended Scotch Whisky, the world's most awarded blended Scotch whisky, has released Dewar's 19 Year Old - The Champions Edition. (SRP: $79.99). The limited-edition whisky is released in partnership with the 123rd U.S. Open Championship, to be held at The Los Angeles Country Club (LACC), June 15-18, of which Dewar's is the official Scotch whisky partner for the third year running.

Created by four-time Master Blender of the Year, Stephanie Macleod and her team, The Champions Edition is extra-matured in hand-selected red wine casks from nearby Napa Valley, a region known for its award-winning fine wines, to produce a Scotch whisky that is rich and complex.

The Champions Edition was inspired by the ethos of the U.S. Open's "From Many, One" campaign, bringing together up to 40 grain and single malt whiskies. It features notes of red berries and black cherries, which resolve into a rich and fruity finish with a hint of nutmeg. Part of the bottle proceeds go towards the USGA Foundation, which celebrates, serves, and advances the game of golf.

In addition to The Champions Edition, Dewar's will again serve as the official cocktail of the U.S. Open with the Dewar's Lemon Wedge cocktail which combines the smoothness of Dewar's 12 Year Old whisky with lemonade and club soda, and is topped with a golf tee pick and a lemon wedge for garnish.

"Connecting with friends or family after a round of golf is intrinsic to the game, with many golfers enjoying the established tradition of a round of drinks at the 19th hole. It is an important occasion for us, where golfers can both celebrate or commiserate, depending on their performance on the course, over a small dram or a refreshing highball.

"Whether golfers prefer sipping our Dewar's 19 Year Old - Champion's Edition neat or enjoying the award-winning Dewar's's 12 Year Old in a Dewar's Lemon Wedge cocktail, we toast to golf's enduring spirit of camaraderie, competition and celebration," noted Brian Cox, VP-Dewar's North America.
