The R&A extends its gratitude to our Official Suppliers for their support of The Open Championship.
Champagne Bollinger has a history of achieving perfection and has been excelling in the Champagne region for more than 180 years. Founded in 1829 in the village of Aÿ, Bollinger is one of the last remaining independent Champagne houses. The Bollinger family dedicated their lives to their passion and specialist knowledge. The highly respected Madame Bollinger, who presided over the house from 1941, implemented strict regulations to guarantee the quality of the wines, which are still adhered to today by her successors. To this day, the House remains resolutely independent.
As the Official Champagne of The Open Championship, the Bollinger Tent in the Tented Village at Muirfield will be open to the public and welcoming guests at this year’s Championship. The Bollinger Tent is the perfect place to join friends and fellow golf enthusiasts to share a bottle of Bollinger Special Cuvée and discuss the day’s play.

Glenmorangie, Distiller of the Year 2012, is proud to be the ‘Spirit of The Open Championship’.
Both Glenmorangie and The Open have a proud heritage dating back over 150 years. Whilst The Open is golf’s oldest Major Championship dating back to 1860, Glenmorangie was first produced in 1843 and is now a leading global player in premium single malts, enjoyed in over 130 countries worldwide, as well as being Scotland’s favourite single malt whisky.
Carefully crafted by the famous Men of Tain, we believe in going the extra mile in the pursuit of perfection, making us a perfect partner for The Open. We like to describe Glenmorangie as ‘unnecessarily well made’ — taking great pride in the lengths to which we go to create some of the world’s most sought-after Scotch whiskies.
Just as Glenmorangie goes to unnecessary lengths to craft its award winning single malt whisky — using the tallest stills in Scotland and only the finest quality oak casks — so The Open is renowned every year for its meticulous preparation of the greens, fairways and bunkers of each Championship course as well as the exceptional displays of golfing finesse from the world’s leading players, making Glenmorangie and The Open a natural fit. www.glenmorangie.com
