Iona Stephen becomes Loch Lomond brand ambassador

Scotch whisky distiller Loch Lomond has appointed professional golfer Iona Stephen as a brand ambassador.

Iona Stephen has joined Loch Lomond Whiskies as its latest brand ambassador

Stephen will work alongside current brand ambassadors Colin Montgomerie, Cristie Kerr and Darren Clarke to promote Loch Lomond’s range of single malts worldwide.

“A Scotch single malt is my drink of choice, so naturally I am absolutely delighted to be working closely with the team at Loch Lomond Whiskies,” said Stephen.

“I am proud to be Scottish, a country renowned for both its unrivalled love of golf and fantastic whiskies, so this partnership is a natural fit for me. I look forward to telling the story behind the creation of such a unique range of single malt whiskies and their passion for the game of golf.”

Stephen sustained a wrist injury in 2018 and has since taken on a leading role in golf’s TV coverage, regularly appearing on Golfing World and Sky Sports Golf.

Loch Lomond Group CEO, Colin Matthews, said: “We’re extremely pleased to welcome Iona to our growing team of Loch Lomond Whiskies ambassadors.

“She has not only quickly made her mark as a knowledgeable presenter of everything golf over the last couple of years, but she has also been a pleasure to work with. With her knowledge of the game, her engaging style and her genuine interest in Scotch whisky, this new partnership will allow us to further develop our presence in the sport and spread the message of Loch Lomond Whiskies around the world.

“2020 promises to be another stellar year for Loch Lomond Whiskies, and our ambassadors will play a pivotal role in our strategy to increase the global visibility of our brands among golf and whisky fans alike.”

Within her new role as an ambassador for the brand, Stephen will host Q&As for Loch Lomond Whiskies at The 149th Open Championship at Royal St George’s in Kent, UK, in July 2020.
