John Walker & Sons King George V Lunar New Year Limited Edition design is created by rising star of the fashion industry, Shanghai-based designer Angel Chen.
The stunningly vivid design for the Year of the Rabbit features a dynamic, modern interpretation of 2023’s Zodiac animal, the sprightly rabbit. Symbolising mercy, elegance and beauty, the rabbit signifies longevity in traditional Asian culture and as an echo of the Johnnie Walker motto, Keep Walking, prancing rabbits are captured bounding amongst mountainous peaks.
Designer Angel Chen says: “My work is often inspired by different generations, different genders and cultures coming together to create something fresh and new. These ideals echo the craft of Johnnie Walker, taking different types of whisky from different distilleries, with differing ages of maturation and blending them together perfectly to create a masterpiece – that is something I can relate to.”
John Walker & Sons King George V is a blended Scotch, created using only the finest whiskies from distilleries that were operating during George’s twenty-five-year reign (1910 – 1936). They are blended together to reflect the distinctive Johnnie Walker style of the era.
Sensuous, layered and intense, the John Walker & Sons King George V is a kaleidoscope of flavours and aromas. Hints of roasted nuts, dark chocolate and an imposing sweet smokiness combine elegantly with suggestions of honey, citrus orange and rose petals.
This is an extremely complex luxury whisky.
