About Johnnie Walker Discover Gift Pack
Upon his father’s death in 1820, a young grocer named Johnnie Walker invested his £417 inheritance from his farmer father into a grocery and spirits shop on High Street in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire, Scotland. While Walker himself was a teetotaller, he sold a popular single malt whisky under the name Walker’s Kilmarnock Whisky. When Walker retired from the store in the 1850s, whisky sales represented just 8% of the store’s business.
In 1857, Alexander Walker — Johnnie Walker’s eldest son —took over and began improving the selection of single malt Scotch whiskies, finally establishing the Johnnie Walker brand as a favored whisky brand . In addition, Alexander had apprenticed with a tea merchant in Glasgow and there, had learned the art of blending tea. Under his stewardship, the House of Walker began blending whisky and bottling it in an iconic, square bottle adorned with a slanted label in 1860. By the time Alexander Walker retired in the 1880s, whisky sales represented over 95% of the store’s business. Today, Johnnie Walker is owned by Diageo and it's one of the most popular Scotch whiskies in the world.

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties and distinct tasting notes. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
