The Golden Can
We’re proud to announce the Tennent’s Golden Can award. A brand new acknowledgement of outstanding contributions to Scottish life and culture.
In addition to a handcrafted golden gong for the mantelpiece, recipients will be able to tap into a reliable and abundant supply of Tennent’s Lager and can also look forward to being immortalised in our Golden Can Hall of Fame – A replica of the award will be put on show in the Visitor’s Centre of our historic Brewery in Glasgow, where members of the general public will be able to see the trophy close up as part of the brewery tour.
From now on in, the award will be a permanent fixture in the Scottish calendar. We’ll be offering future Golden Cans to deserving individuals across the world of film, TV, comedy, music, sport and to everyday punters doing hilarious, brilliant and inspiring things in Scotland too.
The inaugural recipient of our Golden Can is none other than Scottish cultural giant Irvine Welsh on the day before the premiere of Trainspotting 2 in Edinburgh. Two words: Total. Legend.
