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
Drink neat to enjoy Johnnie Walker Blue Label's rich smoothness, and have a carafe of water to adjust to taste. Pour about 50ml into a tumbler or rocks glass and try it with some dried fruits and nuts to highlight some of the flavour qualities of this super premium label. And why not sample the great range of Scotch whiskies that make up Johnnie Walker: the spicy, fresh Johnnie Walker Red Label Whisky, the iconic and smooth Black Label, the intense, smoky Johnnie Walker Double Black Label Whisky, the indulgent and creamy Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve Whisky, the exclusive Johnnie Walker Platinum Label and the unsurpassed Johnnie Walker Blue Label Whisky.
