John Walker & Sons Celebratory Blend is inspired by the historic moment in our journey – the release of Old Highland Whisky. Old Highland Whisky was the first commercial whisky brand from John Walker & Sons produced in the 1860s, which went on to feature the square bottle and slanted label taking the whisky from Scotland to the four corners of the world.
The rich and complex blend is inspired by the flavours found in the stock books from the Walker family’s grocery store in the 1860s and uses whiskies from distilleries which were operating at that time. The blend’s unique strength is similar to that of our Old Highland Whisky sold during that era. John Walker & Sons Celebratory Blend is a sensorial journey featuring notes of sweet dried raisins and subtle spice, which develop into hints of roasted nuts and gentle peat, with a soft pepper finish.
