In Honor of Olympic Gold, Glenmorangie Toasts Global Golf Ambassador, Justin Rose, with a Cocktail Made in His Name.
To celebrate professional golfer Justin Rose’s historic win at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Glenmorangie Single Malt Scotch Whisky has created a cocktail in his name. Rose, recently named Glenmorangie’s Global Golf Ambassador, made the first hole in one in Olympics golf history on Thursday, August 11th, 2016, and went on to win the first gold medal in the men’s tournament in 112 years. The Justin Rose-Gold cocktail is a playful twist of the classic Jack Rose, made with Glenmorangie Nectar D’Òr. Mix one up for yourself!

The face of the Glenmorangie, The Spirit of The Open campaign, Justin Rose appears 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 celebrates Glenmorangie’s ethos around the world, including scheduled appearances in the U.S. and U.K. in 2016.
With his historic win at the Olympics, Rose has firmly cemented himself among golf’s elite, adding the Gold medal to his 19 worldwide titles, including seven wins on the PGA Tour and eight 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.
