Carnoustie-inspired cocktail set to stir up The Open

The Barry Burn Cocktail By Loch Lomond Whiskies

Loch Lomond Whiskies, the official spirit of The Open, will have golf fans shaken and stirred with its bespoke new cocktail, dedicated to the internationally renowned course at Carnoustie.

The Barry Burn, which will be available to sample onsite at The 147th Open, is named after the famous stream that flows through Carnoustie’s 18th fairway and is intended to be enjoyed as a celebration for completing the world’s hardest finishing hole on The Open circuit.

It also pays tribute to Loch Lomond Whiskies ambassador Paul Lawrie, the last Scot to win The Open, also at Carnoustie in 1999.

Made with Loch Lomond Whiskies beautifully balanced 12-year-old single malt Scotch whisky, which recently won a Double Gold Medal at the 2018 San Francisco World Spirits Competition, the Barry Burn is a twist on the classic whisky cocktail ‘The Old Fashioned’ to honour the world’s original golf championship.

Loch Lomond Whiskies has updated this classic to represent the beautiful east coast location using locally sourced Scottish honey and lavender. 

John Grieveson, chief marketing officer at Loch Lomond Whiskies, remarked: “This cocktail isn’t just for guests at The Open but can also be enjoyed by fans at home. Although the 18th at Carnoustie might be a challenging hole our Barry Burn is a very ‘makeable’ drink.”

To enjoy the official spirit of The Open at home…

- Add 1 teaspoon of Scottish honey into a tall mixing glass with 2 drops of Angostura bitters.

- Stir in 50ml Loch Lomond 12 Year Old Single Malt.

- Continue to stir with ice.

- Strain cocktail over ice into a rocks glass.

- Garnish with a sprig of lavender.

Always drink responsibly.
