Johnnie Walker King George V Edition
Blended Scotch Whisky
The Rarest of the Rare
The Johnnie Walker Blue Label King George V Edition is handcrafted from rare whiskies produced only in distilleries that operated during the reign of King George V (1930-1936), including several which no longer exist, the blend also features prized Islay malts from the Port Ellen distillery, founded in the 1820s, the stills of which are no longer operational.
Johnnie Walker Blue Label King George Edition celebrates the first Royal Warrant granted to John Walker and Sons Ltd to supply Scotch whisky to the British Royal Household in 1934, recognition of the quality and appeal of its whisky.
Johnnie Walker Blue Label King George V Edition is exquisitely packaged in crystal decanter accompanied by an individually numbered certificate of authenticity.
The whiskies that make Blue Label are especially selected for their individuality from some of the rarest stocks. Maturing in oak means that there will always be the exceptional, the unusual and the rare, and these are the whiskies that are used for.
The Master Blenders at Johnnie Walker have always possessed legendary sensory skills. To produce Blue Label requires not only the skill to sense an aroma in parts per million, but to then weave these together, creating layer upon layer of taste and flavor.
Their role in creating Blue Label is to guide the unbroken line of maturing stock until it’s ready for selection.
“I think of blending as being like the process of writing. Is the final book just a series of words, a lot of facts and information, or has it been put together with care and attention so that the end result will relate to the person who reads it? If it does, then that, you could argue, is magic blending, like writing, like any creative process, is much more involved in the world of ideas, with trying to connect with the whisky drinker. I like to think that we have made that connection with our whiskies.” – Jim Beveridge, Johnnie Walker Master Blender
