On the day of the parade, Tennent’s will donate 5p to charity for every pint of
Tennent’s Lager, Caledonia Best and Tennent’s Original Export sold across the whole of
Scotland. The Tennent’s team has revealed it is donating all cash raised to Capability
Scotland. As well as campaigning with and providing employment, education and care
services to disabled adults and children, Capability Scotland also supports disabled
people to access sports and leisure activities.

Tennent’s will also celebrate our athletes’ achievements this summer by producing 1000
commemorative bottles of its award winning premium export lager, Tennent’s Original
Export, which will feature a gold version of the iconic Tennent’s ‘T’ bottle and pack,
designed especially for the occasion.

Managing Director of Tennent Caledonian John Gilligan comments: ‘Like the rest of
Scotland, we feel a great sense of pride in our athletes and the success they have had
during this tremendous summer of sport. Everyone at Tennent’s agreed that we wanted to do
something special to mark their victory parade on behalf of our business, our customers
and all Tennent’s drinkers. So for one day on the 14th of September, everyone across
Scotland can toast our athletes and be part of the celebrations, knowing that they’re
raising some funds for a truly worthwhile cause in the process. And the lucky ones may be
able to get their hands on one of our limited edition Tennent’s Original Export Beer
bottles as a keepsake from the day, which I’m sure will be like gold dust themselves once
they’re released!’

Details of how to win one of the limited edition bottles of Tennent’s Original Export
can be found on Tennent’s facebook page. Details of the full campaign are available at

        - Founded in 1885, Tennent's Lager is known as an industry pioneer, recognised
          as being the first commercial lager to be produced to scale in Scotland (and one of
          the first in the UK) and at the forefront of introducing canned and draught lager to
          the UK
        - The brand is renowned for its iconic 'Red T' logo and for its innovative
          marketing campaigns, including some of Scotland's most memorable and entertaining
          advertising
        - In November 2010 the business opened its Tennent's Training Academy on-site at
          Wellpark. This state-of-the-art facility provides high quality industry training that
          is accessible for the entire industry - not just for Tennent's customers
        - In October 2011, Tennent Caledonian launched a major new beer brand for
          Scotland - Caledonia Best - made with 100 per cent Scottish barley
        - In March 2012 Scotland's First Minister the Right Honourable Alex Salmond MSP
          opened a new GBP4 million bottling line at Wellpark Brewery

          Scottish market: Tennent's Original Export - brewed in Glasgow using the finest

          bronze medals at two of the toughest global beer quality challenges: the Monde
          Selection in Belgium and the International Beer Challenge. Three of the business's new
          brands fared well in the competitions, with five medals awarded for Tennent's Original
          Export (UK market), and Tennent's Scotch Ale / Tennent's Extra (Italian market).
