Johnnie Walker celebrates Year of the Pig with limited edition Blue Label design
Johnnie Walker®, the world’s number one blended Scotch Whisky, is releasing Johnnie Walker Blue Label Year of the Pig Limited Edition Design in celebration of Chinese New Year and 2019 as the Year of the Pig.
This award-winning Scotch (Gold at the International Spirits Challenge 2018 and Scotch Whisky Masters 2018) is a velvety smooth and vibrant whisky with layers of rich fruit, spice, and a long, lingering smokiness.
The annual commemorative Lunar New Year Limited Edition Blue Label Design series is now in its sixth instalment, inspired by the enduring legacy of the Chinese Zodiac. It is a perfect gift to give the people who walk with you; those that you wish will enjoy a year of unbridled happiness and prosperity.
Only 1 in 10,000 casks in Johnnie Walker’s unparalleled reserves of over 10 million maturing Scotch Whiskies has the richness and depth of character required to intricately craft Johnnie Walker Blue Label. Inside every bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue Label are remarkably rare handpicked single malt and grain whiskies from the four corners of Scotland, including Caol Isla, Benrinnes, Cardhu, Clynelish and the ‘ghost’ whisky Port Dundas, crafted to create this velvety smooth and vibrant Scotch Whisky.
In Chinese astrology, the Pig is a symbol of prosperity, generosity and abundance, and the limited-edition Johnnie Walker bottle’s unique and intricate design brings to life the animal bringing good fortune to all as it rejoices in the arrival of the New Year.
Johnnie Walker Blue Label Year of the Pig Limited Edition Design will be available to purchase nationally from all major liquor retailers from early December, RRP $260 for a 750ml bottle (40% ABV).
The perfect Scotch Whisky for those seeking a drink with a depth of character to match their own.
