Johnnie Walker '1805' Celebration Blend 75cl / US Import

Johnnie Walker is arguably the most popular and recognisable blended Scotch on the market. Its core range includes the standard Red Label and Black Label, introduced in 1909 and named, quite simply, after their packaging. The iconic “striding man” motif was first drawn by Tom Browne the year prior. The premium Blue Label brand was introduced in 1992, and is composed using malt whisky from some of the most sought after distilleries in Diageo’s extensive portfolio. Today, many of these distilleries are only still with us due to their importance to the Johnnie Walker blends during the difficult 1980s period for the industry. A true champion of the whisky world. 

The 1805 is a near mythical bottle of Johnnie Walker, created by Jim Beveridge as one of the rarest and exclusive whiskies to mark the 200th anniversary of John Walker's birthday.

This was never intended for public sale as all of the bottles were gifted to people who (in the company's opinion) ‘made a significant contribution to modern life,’ the company has never divulged this list.

This very limited whisky was produced from only 9 casks, all aged between 45 and 70 years old and limited to only 200 bottles.
