Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare 1st Edition / Brora
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.
A limited release of Johnnie Walker's most premium brand. The Ghost and Rare blends focus on Scotland's lost and sorely missed distilleries, with this first release built around malt from the legendary Brora (which was still closed at the time). Other "Ghosts" rearing their welcome heads from the annals of whisky history is malt from lost Speyside distillery Pittyvaich, and Cambus grain, which closed in 2002 and 1993 respectively.
Brora re-opened in 2021.
