ads with a football theme are being used to support Scottish Leader whisky in the Scottish market.

The campaign ties in with

the brand becoming the official whisky for Celtic, Rangers and Hearts football clubs.

The 48 and 96-sheet posters depict

Deanston Distillery, where the brand is made, in

Marco Di Ciacca, brand manager at Burn Stewart Distillers, said: "The UK whisky trade is a tough environment and following the latest Budget it's certainly not going to get any easier."
