Glenmorangie is proud to announce Justin Rose as the brand’s new Golf Ambassador.
Ranked #7 in the official world golf at the end of 2015, Rose embodies Glenmorangie’s spirit of going the great lengths to create its whisky, borne out of his dedication to performing on golf’s biggest stages. As such, he is considered the perfect golfer to join the Single Malt Scotch Whisky’s partnership with The Open Championship.
Glenmorangie, The Spirit of The Open, will feature Rose as the face of its campaign; he will appear in a series of brand films toasting a shared belief in the uncompromising pursuit of excellence, meticulous preparation and attention to detail. As the Glenmorangie Golf Ambassador, Rose will celebrate Glenmorangie’s ethos around the world, including scheduled appearances in the U.S. and U.K. in 2016.
“We are delighted to introduce Justin as an ambassador for Glenmorangie, The Spirit of The Open. Justin has inextricable links with The Open Championship, an event we have proudly partnered with for a number of years. A proven winner, Justin leaves no stone unturned in his quest to be the best. At Glenmorangie, it is a belief in being unnecessarily well made that drives the creation of our award winning whisky. There are a great deal of similarities in both our approaches and what we are trying to do in our respective fields.”
– Marc Hoellinger, President and CEO of The Glenmorangie Company
Rose has firmly cemented himself among golf’s elite with 19 worldwide titles, including 7 wins on the PGA Tour and 8 victories on the European Tour. He first came to prominence as a 17-year-old amateur with a fourth-place showing at the 1998 British Open, and has since won the 2013 U.S. Open, becoming the first Brit in 40 years to emerge victorious at one of golf’s toughest challenges. In addition, his remarkable finish at Royal Birkdale, holing his 50-yard approach from the rough on the 72nd hole, made him part of Open Championship folklore.
“It is an honor to forge a partnership with such an iconic malt whisky. I am excited to be part of Glenmorangie’s plans to celebrate The Open Championship and what it stands for. Glenmorangie is a whisky I enjoy, and I appreciate the history, tradition and years of experience that go into crafting its unique flavor and finish.”
