Johnnie Walker Black Label description

With its origins in the 1870s Old Special Whisky, JOHNNIE WALKER BLACK LABEL became simply 'BLACK LABEL' in 1909. Each bottle of BLACK LABEL will have been two decades in the planning and draws whisky from the finest distilleries across Scotland aged in the finest whisky casks.

Each whisky is matured in a slightly different way, due to the intricacies of wood, climate and location. The Master Blenders' skill is in blending these whiskies together to create a whisky with an extraordinary range of flavour. Today the blend remains as rich and smooth as it was when John Walker's son and grandson were Master Blenders.

Knowledge Bar

John "Johnnie" Walker was born in 1805 near Kilmarnock and ran a grocery, wine and spirits shop on the High Street in Kilmarnock from where he started to sell his own whisky brand, then known as Walker’s Kilmarnock Whisky.

John’s son, Alexander, had learned the art of tea blending whilst working for a tea merchant in Glasgow and, when he returned to take over the family business from his ailing father, he used those skills to create the family's first blend in 1865, Old Highland Whisky, which eventually became Johnnie Walker Black Label.

A few years later, in 1870, Alexander introduced the now iconic square bottle as it allowed more bottles to be packed in a case and reduced breakages.
