The Famous Grouse honours the queen with a new bottle and a sponsored kilt run
The Famous Grouse is celebrating the Queen’s Jubilee with a specially renamed packaging, replacing the all-important ‘Grouse’ with ‘Jubilee’, for The Famous Jubilee edition.
Not satisfied with simply launching a limited edition bottle, the blended Scotch brand is attempting to break the Perth Kilt run record, aiming to get 2,000 runners to don a kilt and run 8km through Perth on the day of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee celebrations. The current record is held by twin city Perth, Ontario, where 1,089 runners took part.
Glen Gribbon, director of The Famous Grouse, said: “As the home nation of the kilt we really feel it is a matter of national pride that we take this record from our friends in Canada and what better time to attempt it than the Diamond Jubilee weekend. We are thrilled to be involved in the celebration and hope we can all break a world record at the same time.”
Participation is free, and all runners must be over 15 years old.
