Among the best and most well-known in scotch blends come from Johnnie Walker. For almost two centuries of progress with astounding vision and creativity, the scotch has evolved into flavors just waiting to taste and endure. Its purity is unlike any other scotch.
John Walker made a name for himself as businessman early in 1825 by selling just about anything, but especially whiskey at his grocery store in Kilmarnock, Ayershire, Scotland. His son, Alexander, born in 1837 was the man to carry the Walker legend that registered the Johnnie Walker name and won the world over as early as 1877. The next generation of Walkers took the empire in 1889 after Alexander Walker passed away. Alexander II and George were perfect to take the legacy into what it is today starting with the whiskey trios of three main brands; Old Highland Whiskey, Special Old Highland and Extra Special Old Highland. Each was renamed in 1909, however by how their customers differentiated the types. The color-coded labels identified the brand and representation of the aging process. Johnnie Walker Red, and Johnnie Walker Black were born to stay.
