To celebrate becoming the Official Spirits & Champagne Tournament Provider to Rugby World Cup 2015, William Grant & Sons recently hosted ‘The Legends Ball at the Jumeirah Carlton Tower.

The Ball saw rugby legends such as Lewis Moody MBE (pictured), Andy Robinson OBE and Kyran Bracken MBE join William Grant & Sons to toast the Tournament while raising money for The Lewis Moody Foundation, which helps families affected by serious illness and funds scientific research through The Brain Tumour Charity.

Lewis Moody MBE, part of England’s Rugby World Cup 2003 winning side, said: “It was a great night of celebration as well as raising money for a worthy cause, and we’re thankful to William Grant & Sons UK for their support in hosting this successful event.”

The event kicked off a partnership that sees William Grant & Sons secure exclusive pouring rights for champagne and spirits at all Rugby World Cup 2015 venues, and offering fans the chance to win match tickets, including to the Final, through the #RaiseEmUp2015 campaign.

Gary Keogh, Marketing Director, William Grant & Sons, said: “For William Grant & Sons and our brands, this partnership is about uniting with the millions of rugby fans for the incredible tournament that will be Rugby World Cup 2015. We look forward to being a part of the celebrations, the memories, the moments that people will treasure for a lifetime. Our Legends Ball was the perfect kick-start and celebration of a very exciting time for us.”
