A little about Johnnie Walker’s Label:
Initially John the first founder of this brand started blending a line of single malts for consistent quality which made it famous in a line of single malts that tasted different in every product. After he died, the legacy was continued by his son Alexander who launched Johnnie Walker’s first commercial blend – ‘Old Highland Whisky’. The advertising and transporting tactic used by Alexander was engaging with the captains of ships to carry his whisky wherever they would sail. Soon after Johnnie Walker became a global phenomenon.
A huge profit that he brought to the business was changing the shape of these bottles to square, this resulted in less damage and the design was iconic then and it is now as well. In the year 1909, Alexander II & George renamed their successful new range of whiskies after the colours of their distinctive labels. Johnnie Walker Red Label and Johnnie Walker Black Label were born. The famous ‘Striding Man’ logo was built by Tom Browne – a young illustrator in those days. By the end of the 20th century, The Red & Black label was joined by the pinnacle of blender’s art – Johnnie Walker Blue Label. Johnnie Walker has been bestowed with a number of awards, medals and titles for their extraordinary growing range which now includes Johnnie Walker Gold Label Reserve and Johnnie Walker Platinum Label.
‘Today, Johnnie Walker is the biggest whisky brand in the world and its slogan is has been adopted and embraced everywhere, as a rallying cry for progress, as encouragement in adversity, as a joyful expression of optimism and as the best piece of advice you’re ever likely to hear.’Johnnie Walker
