Johnnie Walker Blue Label unveils the ultimate City Edition bottles

When we ticked over into June last week not only did it mark the starter-gun going off for the sun to actually come out but also for Johnnie Walker Blue Label, the leading luxury Blended Scotch Whisky, to launch two stunning City Edition bottles… Both bottles are exquisitely designed to capture the essence of two of the UK’s most iconic cities: London and Edinburgh.

Only 4,000 of these exclusive bottles have been created, with each individually hand numbered – a must-have for whisky enthusiasts and collectors alike. WE. WANT. BOTH.

Its a special bottle…

These intricate, gold-rendered limited edition prints take the viewer on a journey through the streets of London and Edinburgh, incorporating the distinctive architecture and attractions of the two iconic cities.

More contemporary additions from London’s skyline include The Shard and The Gherkin which house two of the world’s best bars and in which you can enjoy a Blue Label Perfect Serve.

Screen Shot 2015-06-07 at 17.37.01The Johnnie Walker Blue Label Edinburgh Edition celebrates the history and beauty of the homeland of both the brand and Scotch whisky. Featuring some of the greatest treasures of Scotland, the Edinburgh edition reveals a sweeping spiral of the city’s iconic monuments in luxurious gold. The bottle features instantly recognisable sites including Edinburgh Castle, the Scott Monument and the Duke of Edinburgh statue alongside the historic cobbled streets and walls.

Whether a whisky lover, collector or self-confessed British or Scottish patriot, the artistry and individuality of these Limited Edition bottles creates a unique and extra special gift (FATHER DAYS ALERT!)
Housed in a beautifully designed gift box laced with golden text and icons such as The Shard and The Balmoral Hotel Edinburgh, this exclusive case further highlights the ultra-premium credentials of the bottle nestled inside. Only 1 in 10,000 casks contain whiskies deemed of a high enough standard to create the remarkably smooth signature taste of Johnnie Walker Blue Label – the ultimate expression of whisky making today.

The launch of both limited edition bottles will be celebrated with bespoke JOHNNIE WALKER BLUE LABEL serves created by GŎNG at Shangri-La Hotel at The Shard, London and The Balmoral Hotel, Edinburgh. More on The Shard soon…
