Co Down wine merchant JN Wine has produced its own brand of champagne for this year's Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.

The Crossgar-based business, founded by James Nicholson, will supply all the champagne for the event which takes place this year at the Royal County Down golf course.

Hundreds of thousands of glasses of JN Champagne will be raised to cheer on players as the event returns to Royal County Down after a 76-year absence.

The champagne, described as delicate and elegant with aromas of brioche and honey and a lemony finish, has been sourced from family-run vineyards in the Epernay area of Champagne.

JN Wine will also be directly supporting the Rory Foundation, which is the official host of this year's event and was set up by Rory McIlroy to raise funds for children's charities.

James Nicholson said: "This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to be involved at this level with an event like the Irish Open.

"Sourcing quality wine producers is our area of expertise and we're thrilled that guests and the world-class players at this event will be drinking our champagne."
