JohnnieWalker Blue Label is a commemoration of Alexander Walker’s remarkable 1867 Old Highland Whisky. Its epic story is one that has seen it travel it from the four corners of Scotland, to the four corners of the earth. Using blending skills learnt from his father, carefully honed through the blending of teas and spices from the New World, Alexander Walker harnessed whisky flavours from across Scotland to craft a blend of truly rare quality and sent it 'wherever ships could sail'. Crafted in a time of remarkable achievements, in an age that would change the world forever, Old Highland Whisky was seen as a defining statement in whisky excellence and quickly became a dominant force in the global Scotch Whisky market. Alexander's entrepreneurial vision knew no bounds, and as a result, JohnnieWalker whiskies were being sold in more than 120 countries by 1920 winning worldwide acclaim. The rare casks used in the blending of JohnnieWalker Blue Label are drawn from the largest reserves of whisky in the world. The casks are hand-selected and set aside for their exceptional quality, character and flavour. They are truly special, with only 1 in 10,000 containing whisky of sufficient character to deliver its remarkably smooth signature taste. JohnnieWalker Blue Label is the pinnacle of Blended Scotch Whisky making from JohnnieWalker. The rare craft that lies behind it sees today's Master Blender, Jim Beveridge, hand-picking and skillfully blending rare whiskies, with elusive flavours, from the four corners of Scotland to produce a true work of art. Jim, part of an unbroken blending heritage stretching back over 190 years, nurtures supremely rare casks from our unparalleled reserves for as long as they take to mature to perfection, and then blends them in small batches to create this most intense and complex of whiskies. JohnnieWalker Blue Label is a big flavoured whisky that reflects the Walker family's belief that neither whisky age alone, nor whisky from a single location, is enough to achieve the creation of an unrivalled masterpiece today. Layers of big flavour, deep richness and smoke, layers of honey and fruit and an incredibly smooth finish deliver the truly rare character of JohnnieWalker Blue Label . Is an intense, rich, deep and multi-layered experience. Best savoured with the palate cleansed and cooled by iced water. JohnnieWalker Blue Label has a mellow, rounded nose, with a dry smokiness (a JohnnieWalker signature flavour) mixed with raisin sweetness. The first sip reveals a velvety mouth-feel, then an explosion of flavour - hazelnuts, honey, rose petals, sherry and oranges. Subsequent sips reward you with more hidden secrets like kumquats, wispy aromatic smoke, sandalwood, tobacco, and dark chocolate. Then there’s a rich and uniquely long and satisfying finish of smoke and pepper, ending with a glorious touch of spice.

Johnnie Walker

Product by: Johnnie Walker

Originally known as Walker's Kilmarnock Whisky, the Johnnie Walker brand is a legacy left by John "Johnnie" Walker after he started to sell whisky in his grocer's shop in Ayrshire, Scotland. The brand became popular, but after Walker's death in 1857 it was his son Alexander Walker and grandson Alexander Walker II who were largely responsible for establishing the whisky as a popular brand. Under John Walker, whisky sales represented eight percent of the firm's income; by the time Alexander was ready to pass on the company to his own sons, that figure had increased to between 90 and 95 percent. In Britain prior to 1860, it was illegal to sell blended whisky.During that time John Walker sold a number of whiskies notably his own Walker's Kilmarnock. In 1865, John's son Alexander produced their first blend, Walker's Old Highland. Alexander Walker introduced the iconic square bottle in 1860. This meant more bottles fitting the same space and resulted in fewer broken bottles. The other identifying characteristic of the Johnnie Walker bottle is the label, which is applied at an angle of 24 degrees and allows text to be made larger and more visible. From 1906 to 1909, John's grandsons George and Alexander II expanded the line and introduced the colour names. In 1908, when James Stevenson was the Managing Director, there was a re-branding of sorts. The whisky was renamed from Walker's Kilmarnock Whiskies to Johnnie Walker Whisky. In addition, the slogan, "Born 1820—Still going Strong!" was created, along with the Striding Man logo, a figure used in their advertisements to this day, created by illustrator Tom Browne, in honour of the founder, and given the same name. Johnnie Walker White was dropped during World War I. In 1932, Alexander II added Johnnie Walker Swing to the line, the name originating from the unusual shape of the bottle, which allowed it to rock back and forth. The company joined Distillers Company in 1925. Distillers was acquired by Guinness in 1986, and Guinness merged with Grand Metropolitan to form Diageo in 1997.
