The John Walker

Posted by: Ruben Luyten In: * News

The John Walker - Johnnie Walker blue labelTo mark the start of a new decade, the House of Walker celebrates the life of its founder with the launch of The John Walker, a special version of the Blue label blend.

It contains malt and grain whiskies from 9 casks, with the intention to recreate the authentic flavours of a 19th Century blend in John Walker’s original style. The whisky has been taken from a range of distilleries, some of which are now closed.

A Baccarat crystal decanter and a 24 carat Gold plated neck underscore the exclusivity. Retail price: £ 2000. Sold by Harrods.

    Assumed that the price mainly is the design of the bottle.

    2000 euro for a big perfume look-a-like bottle?? No thanks…
