About Johnnie Walker King George V Lunar New Year 2023 Blended Scotch Whisky

Johnnie Walker needs no introduction, as it is the biggest-selling Scotch whisky brand in the world. Now owned by a Scotch multinational colossus Diageo, its humble beginnings started in 1819, when a 14-year-old Johnnie opened a grocery in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire, and started blended whiskies from local spirits.

The business was passed from father to son for several generations, each chipping in their own way. The most notable contributions were the introduction of the square bottle design and the slanting label in the 1860s. The introduction of the ‘striding man’ figure—drawn in 1908 by cartoonist Tom Browne—played a vital part in making the brand visible.

Johnnie Walker King George V Lunar New Year 2023 Blended Scotch Whisky is as sophisticated and sound as the name suggests. Celebrating the arrival of the New Lunar Year and honoring the work of King George V, this creamy whisky combines rarity and exclusivity in every dram. It unapologetically shows off flavors of sweet and smoky aromas of roasted nuts and dark chocolate. The limited-edition design by fashion designer and artist Angel Chen adds a level of pizzazz. A whisky this fine is best enjoyed neat.

About Johnnie Walker

Johnnie Walker, one of the most widely distributed brands of blended Scotch whisky in the world, originated in the Scottish burgh of Kilmarnock in East Ayrshire. The story of the brand starts with John Walker, who started a profitable groceries business with the inheritance from his father. John Walker, himself a teetotaler, found his competitive edge in whiskies he blended himself, offering his customers a consistent product, unlike most other grocers, who usually sold a line of single malts that were never all that consistent. Whisky represented about eight percent of the sales when John’s son Alexander Walker took over the business after his father’s death in 1857, and when the company was passed on to the third generation, this share was already between 90 and 95 percent. The legalization of the blending of grain and malt whiskies by the Spirits Act of 1860 marked the beginning of the modern blended Scotch whisky. Johnnie Walker's first commercial blend, called Old Highland Whisky, was launched in 1867. Alexander Walker also introduced the brand's signature square bottle, and the distinctive slanted label. In 1893, the Walkers acquired the Cardhu distillery, and kept expanding through the early 20th century by buying interests in a number of distilleries. This ensured the company a steady supply of whiskies for its blends. By 1909, John's grandsons George and Alexander II had expanded the line, and sold three blended whiskies.

In 1909, the company rebranded its whiskies, introducing the famous striding man logo and renaming the blends after the colors of their labels. By 1920, Johnnie Walker could be bought in 120 countries. The company joined Distillers Company in 1925, and, after its acquisition by Guinness, and Guinness’s subsequent merger with Grand Metropolitan, the brand is now owned by Diageo.

About Scotch

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.
