O’Grady Toasts 40 Years with Ballantine’s 40 Year Old

It’s the 40th anniversary of The European Tour and what could make a better introduction to the Ballantine’s Championship than a bottle of a 40 year old Ballantine’s blended whisky? Well, not much really.

That’s why the Chivas Brothers and CEO Christian Porta decided to give a very delectable gift to the Chief Executive of the European Tour, George O’Grady. The gift was a bottle of their Ballantine’s 40 Year Old, which originally launched in Seoul, Korea in early 2012 and is known as a very rare blend.  Only 100 bottles are to be released every year.

At the anniversary celebration O’Grady said,

“As we mark an important anniversary in The European Tour’s history this month it is important that we recognize that contribution made by all of our sponsors over the years and we are delighted to be able to toast this occasion with Ballantine’s, who have put on a superb event this week.”

He continued on to say,

“The Ballantine’s Championship, now in its fifth year, in many ways represents the growth of The European Tour, which visits many different countries around the world, and we are thankful to sponsors such as Ballantine’s for supporting us in doing this.”

And with a gift like that we’ll add a, “Cheers!”
