With origins in the 1870’s Old Special Whisky from the Johnnie Walker family, Johnnie Walker Black Label was first crafted in the early 1900s as a masterful blend of the most premium whiskies. In 1909 it became simply ‘Black Label’. The range of flavour and heritage makes Johnnie Walker Black Label a classic in the world of whiskies, the benchmark by which all other whiskies are measured.
Each bottle of Johnnie Walker Black Label draws whisky from the finest distilleries across Scotland, aged in whisky casks for at least 12 years. Each whisky is matured in a slightly different way, due to the intricacies of wood, climate and location. The master blender’s skill lies in blending these whiskies together to create a whisky with an extraordinary range of flavour.
How to enjoy

It’s the iconic whisky, one that makes people sit up and take notice. Produce a bottle when you want to start the night in style. Or serve about 50ml neat to enjoy its rich smoothness, and have a carafe of water to adjust to taste.
