  Lot 10


Bottle Number: 852 / 900

43% ABV / 75cl

When John Walker opened a grocery, wine and spirits shop in the Ayrshire town of Kilmarnock in 1820, he had no idea that it was the start of a journey that would end up with the biggest selling Whisky brand in the world bearing his name. The Johnnie Walker Striding Man, the square bottle and the label, placed at exactly 24° would become an iconic sight. Not just in the Whisky world, but in the mainstream as well.

Johnnie Walker is now owned by drinks giant Diageo and carefully watched over by Master Blender Dr Emma Walker (no relation) who took over after the legendary Jim Beveridge retired in 2022, after 40 years with the company.

This limited edition decanter was given to workers at Johnnie Walker's Hill Street plant in Kilmarnock when it closed in 2012.
