Strike Gold with Johnnie Walker

The story of Johnnie Walker begins – naturally enough – with the man who gave the whisky his name.

The year was 1819 and John Walker’s father had just died. A tough start for a humble farm lad, you might think, but there was always something special about John. A glint in his eye, a fire in his belly, a spring in step perhaps.

Read the whole story, here.

This month, you can strike gold when you purchase any Johnnie Walker expressions. All you need to do is scratch and win. Lucky winners will walk away with a 5 gram gold coin. Plus, you’ll save 15% on your purchase.
