To celebrate Lunar New Year – the Year of the Ox- Johnnie Walker is releasing two limited-editions that make the perfect gift: the exclusive John Walker & Sons King George V Lunar New Year Limited-Edition and new Johnnie Walker Blue Label Lunar New Year Limited-Edition.
John Walker & Sons King George V Lunar New Year Limited-Edition
John Walker & Sons King George V Lunar New Year Limited-Edition is a rare combination of exquisite Scotch whiskies, drawn from rare, precious casks, including irreplaceable whiskies from the now silent distillery of Port Ellen. It is an elegantly rich and creamy whisky and the bottle’s bespoke artwork, inspired by Asian couture, is a modern take on traditional Chinese patterns and design.
Johnnie Walker Blue Label Lunar New Year Limited-Edition
The label for Johnnie Walker Blue Label Lunar New Year Limited-Edition liquid is designed and illustrated beautifully by award-winning Chinese artist Shirley Gong whose illustrations are heavily influenced by Chinese traditional painting.
In her exquisite illustrations, the ox is honoured for its majesty as a symbol of prosperity and growth, poised high above mountain clouds representing longevity. The visuals are completed with celebratory lanterns and cherry blossoms, signifying good fortune in the year to come.
Gong’s intricate designs are matched by the rare whiskies they adorn. Two centuries of whisky craft create the rich fruity flavours, perfectly balanced smoke and remarkable depth of character found in every bottle of the velvety smooth and vibrant Johnnie Walker Blue Label.
Both make a perfect gift to wish colleagues and close friends a prosperous start to the New Year, and to mark the beginning of the Year of the Ox on 12 February.
