Brand: Johnnie Walker
Category: Whisky / Premium Whisky
Johnnie Walker® Blue Label™ King George V™ Edition is one of the most distinctive blends ever created in the past century and embodies the essence of the 1930s which is considered the golden era of whisky. This unique, extremely rare blend was created in celebration of the first Royal Warrant granted to John Walker and Sons Ltd to supply Scotch whisky to the British Royal Household in 1934, as recognition of the quality and appeal of its whisky. Staying true to its heritage, Johnnie Walker Blue Label King George V Edition is handmade in the same tradition of Johnnie Walker Blue Label.
This exquisite spirit is handcrafted from rare whiskies produced only in distilleries that operated during the reign of King George V, including several which no longer exist. The blend also features prized Italy malts from the Port Ellen distillery, founded in the 1820s, the stills of which are no longer operational. Johnnie Walker Blue Label King George V Edition is exquisitely packaged in crystal decanter accompanied by an individually numbered certificate of authenticity.
