Scotch whisky producer Burn Stewart Distillers has announced that its Scottish Leader Blended Scotch Whisky brand is to become the Official Whisky for three major Scottish football clubs.

As the Official Whisky of Celtic, Heart of Midlothian and Glasgow Rangers, Scottish Leader will be available in all bars at the clubs' stadiums. The brand will also have advertising space on pitch-side hoardings and Burn Stewart will be able to enjoy hospitality at each of the three grounds.

To complement these tie-ups, Burn Stewart today (27 November) also announced a sponsorship agreement with both Celtic and Rangers TV. Five bottles of Scottish Leader are to be given away each week on two programmes, The Daily Huddle and Ibrox Uncovered live, as part of the 'man of the match' competition.

"The global appeal of Scottish Leader and Celtic, Hearts and Rangers mean that this sponsorship will work for us on many levels," said Burn Stewart's Marco Di Ciacca. "We are delighted to forge links with the clubs and will look to build on this relationship in future seasons."
