A limited-edition bottling of one of the most beloved blends in the world.

Johnnie Walker is one of the most recognized Whisky names in the World. The brand was established in 1860 by John "Johnnie" Walker, when he started blending Whiskies from his grocery shop in Ayrshire, Scotland. During the Victorian Era, success came when his son Alexander exported around the British Empire, establishing the Whisky early as one of the first truly global brands. Today, Johnnie Walker’s famous square-shaped bottle — with the label set at a jaunty 24 degrees — is THE most popular blended Whisky in the world, selling more than 130 million bottles per year in nearly every country on the planet across a wide range of ages, special editions, and finishes.

According to the Chinese zodiac, 2021 is the Year of the Ox, prompting a limited-edition release of the most famous premium blend in the world. Back in 1867, John Walker’s son Alexander created a special premium blend of the finest Scotch Whiskies available at the time. They called it the "Old Highland Whisky," and it was a big hit. Premium Scotches became hard to acquire during World War I, and then Prohibition prevented them from restarting the line. Johnnie Walker Blue Label is formulated to recreate the character of the original and is regarded as one of the best blends available. The special-edition features a design by award-winning artist Shirley Gong.

90% of all Scotch Whisky released in the market is a blend. That’s a hell of a lot.
Single malt stands for around 10% of the Scotch market. This is a malt containing only one grain, legally required to be barley in Scotland, and made at a single distillery.

A blended Scotch is a combination of different malts from different distilleries. It is typically made from grain Whisky but does include malt Whisky to give it a more complex body.
Whisky distilling goes way back to 1494 when the first recorded batch was made by a posse of monks who acquired about 60 gallons of barley and decided to turn it into "aqua vitae". They created the first 1,500 bottles of Scotch in History.
Can Scotch go bad? Technically, an unopened bottle of Scotch can last forever. Air is the only true evil to Whisky; once the liquid is oxidized it is no longer immortal. After opening, as long as you store your Whisky in a cool, dry place, it will last another 5 years.
Beer and malt Whisky seem to have quite a bit in common. Both drinks begin with malted barley, which deliver the enzymes and sugars needed for fermentation when steeped in hot water. The two go their separate ways at the wash stage, where they're fermented or aged to become the adult beverages you know and love.
Blended Whiskies are the result of years of craftsmanship and dedication. A master blender does not simply wake up one day with a profound ability to create a cohesive and enjoyable liquid. From nosing the liquid to working out quantities of each different grain and malt to go into the blend, a master blender can take years, if not decades, to train.
