Johnnie Walker Blue Label has partnered with glassmaker Riedel and urban artist Taxa to create a limited-edition gift box which creates unity between the trio’s pursuit of fine craft.
The beautifully designed gift box houses two of Riedel’s finest glasses carefully selected to pair with Johnnie Walker Blue Label, allowing the extraordinary whisky to be experienced in two very different ways - one bold, and one harmonious.
The first vessel in the gift box is The Spirits glass designed to bring out an elegant harmony of floral aromas and elegant sweetness of Johnnie Walker Blue Label. The elegant slim, flute-shaped bowl allows its contents a very small evaporation surface, tempering the alcohol and the stringency of the palate and emphasizing the bouquet.
The flavours of Johnnie Walker Blue Label are a finely balanced blend of contrasts and an exquisite paradox. The second vessel in the gift box is The Neat glass specially crafted to enhance the bold sensory journey of Johnnie Walker Blue Label’s rich, fiery spice and dark chocolate aromas followed by a dry, powerful finish.
A highlight of gift box is the custom artwork by award-winning Japanese artist Taxa. Known for his urban murals taking over walls and buses across Hong Kong. Taxa created this magnificent art piece inspired by Johnnie Walker Blue Label’s unrivalled depth and what gift-giving means to him. He based the artwork around the two concepts of the heart, and the ocean. The artist explains:
“When I think of gifting, it’s important that I do it with thoughts from my heart. The human heart is deep and when I think about that special person, my thoughts reach down to the deepest part. The ocean is also like the human heart, it is deep and ever-changing with different emotions. Just like people, no two waves are alike”
