The three-year deal covers the national team as well as professional teams Edinburgh Rugby, Glasgow Warriors and the Emirates Airline Glasgow 7s, Tennent Caledonian said yesterday (12 December). The brand will also have pouring rights at national stadium Murrayfield and Scotstoun stadium.

Financial details of the tie-up were not disclosed.

Paul Condron, Tennent Caledonian's marketing director, said Scottish rugby is a perfect fit for Caledonia Best. “We want to be at the heart of the Scottish rugby match-day experience,” Condron said.

Tennent Caledonian’s other flagship brands Tennent’s Lager, Tennent’s Original Export and Magners Golden Draught, will also be poured at Murrayfield and Scotstoun.

In October, Diageo CEO Paul Walsh branded a proposal to ban sports sponsorship in Ireland “ridiculous”. Guinness has a long-standing association with Irish rugby.
