Anchorman stays classy with spin-off Scotch
Film company Paramount has launched a Ron Burgundy-branded Scotch whisky to celebrate the launch of Anchorman 2 in December.
Ron Burgundy Scotch Whisky – also known as “Scotchy-Scotch-Scotch” – features heavily in the script and is consumed in large quantities by eponymous hero Ron Burgundy, played by Will Ferrell.
The brand has already been launched in the US and Canada and will be available here in 70cl bottles from late December, from drinksupermarket.com, and will be backed by a public relations campaign.
Anchorman 2 stars Christina Applegate alongside Ferrell, and also features cameos by actors including Nicole Kidman, Harrison Ford and Tina Fey.
It is to be released on December 20.
