European Tour sponsor, doctor Mouton Cadet, pill the world’s leading Bordeaux AOC wine, is now also the Official Supplier to the KLM Open and the Deloitte Ladies Open.

Since June 2012, Mouton Cadet has been the Official Supplier to the European Tour and serves the needs of individual events, including the Tour’s Flagship Event, the BMW PGA Championship, the Irish Open, the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open, the Senior Open Championship presented by Rolex and the DP World Tour Championship, Dubai.

For the next three years, the world’s leading Bordeaux AOC wine will also be the exclusive wine available at the Deloitte Ladies Open in May and in September at the KLM Open, won last year by Ryder Cup player Peter Hanson of Sweden.

Hugues Lechanoine, Managing Director of Baron Philippe de Rothschild SA, said: “We are delighted to extend our involvement in golf with these two great events, and we raise a glass of Mouton Cadet to the on-going success of both the Deloitte Ladies Open and the KLM Open.”

Both Liz Weima, Tournament Director of the Deloitte Ladies Open, and Daan Slooter, Tournament Director of the KLM Open were thrilled to welcome the brand to the family.

“Hospitality is an important pillar of the success of the Opens in the Netherlands,” said Slooter.

“Next to a world-class sporting experience, our guests also expect to be well taken care of. I’m sure they will appreciate the wines of this outstanding wine house.”
