Johnnie Walker & Sons Celebratory Blend Limited
Edition 200th Anniversary Scotch Whisky
THE STORY BEHIND THE JOHN WALKER & SONS CELEBRATORY
BLEND LIMITED EDITION
2020 marks 200 years since John Walker first opened the
doors to a small grocery store in rural Scotland, setting in motion a chain of
events that would change the world of Scotch whisky forever. This is a limited
edition release inspired by our first commercial blend ‘Old Highland
Whisky’ the first of our whiskies to be exported from Scotland to the
four corners of the world.
As John Walker opened the doors to his grocery store two
hundred years ago, we invite you to do the same when you open this celebratory
Scotch whisky blend to unveil the historic image of where our journey began.
A lot has changed since those early days, but our
entrepreneurial spirit remains the same.
The John Walker & Sons Celebratory Blend is inspired
by a breakthrough moment, the release of ‘Old Highland Whisky’ in the 1860s,
which was created primarily for export and became the first of our whiskies to
travel from Scotland to the four corners of the world. With more whisky being
sold overseas, the iconic design of the square bottle and uniquely slanted
label were distinct and helped the name stand out against other whiskies.

peat, with a soft pepper finish. It celebrates an historic moment in the
