New Zealand Open announces partnership with local craft distillery

The New Zealand Open has announced a new partnership with New Zealand craft distillery Scapegrace, ahead of the 103rd edition of the tournament between Feb 29 and March 3, 2023.

Scapegrace is currently building New Zealand’s largest distillery on the banks of Lake Dunstan in Central Otago, due to open March 2024.

“We’re excited to welcome Scapegrace to the New Zealand Open as an ambitious Kiwi company taking on the world,” says New Zealand Open Partnership Manager, Michael Goldstein.

“Their strong provenance story really resonates with the New Zealand Open and our long-term commitment to the Otago region. We couldn’t think of a better spirits partner to align with.”

Known for its gin and dedication to craft distilling, Scapegrace co-founder and Marketing Manager, Mark Neal, says they couldn’t be more excited to align in spirit with New Zealand’s premier golf tournament.

“This collaboration reflects our commitment to supporting and promoting excellence, whether in the world of craft distilling or on the golf course.

“The New Zealand Open has such a rich history and we can’t wait to share our range of New Zealand distilled spirits with players and attendees at Millbrook Resort come February.”

Scapegrace is currently in 42 markets around the world.

The official beer partner for the tournament is Queenstown’s Canyon Brewing.
