Founded in the first half of the 19th century, John Walker and Sons, makers of Johnnie Walker, are one of the oldest, continuously running whisky-making companies in the world. Starting from humble beginnings as a grocer, the company grew through the 1800s until it was selling some 100,000 gallons of blended whisky a year in the 1860s. The company’s modern era began in 1908, when the flagship blend became known as Johnnie Walker, named after its founder.

Now a subsidiary of Diageo, the world's largest drinks company, John Walker and Sons continues to produce a wide range of whiskies, from the entry-level Red Label all the way up to the £12,000 a bottle John Walker & Sons Diamond Jubilee, released in 2012.

This is a chance for people to hear about how Johnnie Walker’s blenders create the world’s number one Scotch whisky and the incredible distilleries whose whiskies are used to create the blends, and a chance for them to create their very own blended whisky to take away.

Attendees will discuss the balance of flavor needed for a successful blended whisky, the four corners of Scotland where the whiskies come from, Johnnie Walker today and Johnnie Walker’s incredible history in creating amazing whiskies, all followed by a tutored blending session with Johnnie Walker Scotch whisky ambassador Alistair Reynolds.

You will need a virtual pass to attended this session.
