A PERFECT COMBINATION
John’s grandson, Alexander II, was a master of the art of blending. Learning his skills from his father and his grandfather, he was also an apprentice at Robertson & Baxter, an established distillers and wholesale wine and spirit merchants. While first class training is important, natural talent and a Master Blender’s perceptive nose are crucial when creating a complex blend – like Alexander Walker, today’s specialists possess both.
Like a gourmet dish, a Blended Malt Whisky’s success depends on its individual ingredients. Alexander and George, the grandsons of the founder, realised the necessity of using quality products, and after a long search for a distillery producing whiskies of the stature required for their blends, purchased the Cardhu distillery, along with interests in several other prime sites.
This tradition has continued and JOHNNIE WALKER now has the whiskies of 27 distilleries at its disposal, giving its blending team exactly the resources it requires to create the perfect balance of flavours for GREEN LABEL.
Today JOHNNIE WALKER uses this unique range of distilleries to handpick four single malts to create GREEN LABEL.
