Pernod subsidiary Chivas Brothers has signed a three-year extension to the current Ballantine's sponsorship deal, to run until 2012.

The blended whisky has been official supplier to the golf tournament since it was first held in 2007. 

Players will also be awarded a Ballantine’s 21 Year Old for the lowest round of the day and the champion will be presented with a bottle of rare Ballantine’s 30 Year Old, said Chivas Brothers. There will also be on-course visibility, VIP hospitality, private whisky education seminars and the Ballantine’s 12 birdie hole at the tournament, which runs from 8 to 11 July.

Golf has played a large part in Chivas Brothers' growth strategy for Ballantine's.

The group is committed to running The Ballantine's Championship in Korea until at least 2013.
