From over 200 years of history, the House of Johnnie Walker has successfully developed unique and exceptional skills and expertise. It was in 1820, in Scotland, that John Walker first had the idea of selecting malts with different characters and bringing them together to create a whisky with a single taste and increased richness and balance. The Art of Blending was born. While distillation results from a fixed set of procedures, blending comes solely down to human skills - those of the Master Blender. Recognised by his peers as one of the greatest whisky blenders ever, Jim Beveridge has access to the largest and rarest whisky reserves in the world in order to continue the tradition of the House of Walker.
