Slingsby, an award-winning premium gin, will become an Official Sponsor of the BMW PGA Championship after a three-year agreement which will see the Harrogate-based company sponsor the popular Championship Show Live music and entertainment stage.
The UK spirits brand will bring a number of exciting off-course activations to the Rolex Series event when it returns to Wentworth Club from September 19-22, including interactive gin masterclasses and tasting sessions.
The Slingsby Show Stage, meanwhile, will host a number of world-class music acts, with London electronic superstars Rudimental already announced to return to rock Wentworth Club
on the Saturday following a successful headline set last year.
Teaming up with Fevertree - the premium provider of mixers and tonics, already an Official Partner of the BMW PGA Championship – Slingsby will serve the Official Championship G&T to fans attending the September showpiece.
Marcus Black, Co-Founder of Spirit of Harrogate, said: “We are delighted to be part of such a world class sporting event which brings together the world of sport and entertainment.
“Adding a touch of Yorkshire to such a high-profile event in the sporting calendar is brilliant and we wish good luck to all those competing in the event. We hope all the spectators get chance to relax and indulge in a refreshing G&T whilst watching the golf, and also enjoy a few more when listening to the fabulous line up on this year’s Slingsby Show Stage.”
Jamie Birkmyre, Championship Director of the BMW PGA Championship, said: “The BMW PGA Championship is a premium event on the British sporting calendar so to have Slingsby come on board as an Official Partner is a perfect fit.
“The Slingsby Show Stage will host a number of superb musical acts to add to the festival atmosphere which this event enjoys year on year, while the gin masterclasses and tasting sessions will only add to the experience for our fans.”
