International Scotch Day was celebrated across the globe last February 8th, and Diageo’s annual Love Scotch campaign is extending the celebration with a series of global red carpet parties and bar takeovers for the entire month of February.
This year’s Love Scotch is bigger than ever and will be celebrated in over 70 countries worldwide. In Manila, the grand kick-off party for the celebration was attended by Hollywood actor James Marsden (popularly known for his Cyclops character in the X-Men films) and Global Scotch Whisky Ambassador Ervin Trykowski.
