Official Gin of RICOH British Open
Darnley’s Gin are delighted to announce a major new partnership with the Ricoh Women’s British Open as we become the ‘Official Gin’ of this year’s Championship, which will be making its first appearance in Fife at the iconic Kingsbarns Golf Links from 3-6th August.
To tee off the sponsorship in style, Darnley’s Gin was gifted to guests at the tournament’s official Media Day where attendees were given the unique opportunity to play the course ahead of the event.
The partnership marks a milestone year for Darnley’s Gin as we recently announced a bold new look, new expression and new distillery that looks on to the 14th hole at Kingsbarns Golf Links.
Commenting on the announcement, William Wemyss, Owner and Managing Director of Darnley’s Gin, said:
“The Ricoh Women’s British Open is a real highlight of the international golfing calendar, so we are delighted to be associated with such a prestigious tournament.
The Championship and Darnley’s Gin both pride themselves on their rich heritage and the fact that this year’s event will take place in Fife, the home town of the Wemyss family and location of our new distillery, makes the partnership even more of a natural fit.
The sponsorship heralds an exciting new chapter for our gin and we are looking forward to announcing further exciting news over the coming months.”
Now in its 41st year, the Ricoh Women’s British Open is one of only two women’s Majors played outside the US, last year’s line-up boasted players from 30 different nations, including 17 of the world’s top 20 on the Rolex Rankings.
