Double Cross Vodka will be the official vodka sponsor at the 44th edition of the ANA Inspiration, the first major championship of the 2015 LPGA golf calendar. The tournament will be held at one of the LPGAs most iconic venues, Mission Hills Country Club, which has hosted the tournament since 1972.
Top players will include defending champion Lexi Thompson, top-ranked American Stacey Lewis, 2014 U.S. Womens Open Champion Michelle Wie, Rolex No. 1 Lydia Ko and 17-time LPGA tour winner Cristie Kerr, coming fresh off her win over the weekend at the Kia Classic.
Were thrilled to be the official vodka for this historic championship, says Double Cross CEO D. Ross Arthurs. Golf is a passion for many Double Cross drinkers and its an honor to serve our award-winning vodka to golf fans throughout the tournament. I look forward to an exciting week of golf.
Double Cross will be the signature martini at the Pro-Am Gala Dinner on Tuesday night and will also feature cocktails on the course during the Pro-Am on Wednesday. In addition, Double Cross will be featured at all hospitality and concession areas that serve liquor, including the 18th Green VIP Suites and clubhouse bars. The Pro-Am is always a good time at a golf tournament, says Arthurs. Our much-loved Double Cross Martini is incredibly smooth and will be a big hit among attendees.
When planning an event of this caliber, we like to work with world-class brands that match the tradition and excitement of this great championship, says Kevin Hopkins, Executive Director at IMG, the tournament organizer. Double Cross Vodka was a perfect fit. We know our discerning fans will appreciate the Double Cross activations throughout the week.
