Johnnie Walker recently launched a new Scotch whisky honouring Johnnie Walker Master Blender Jim Beveridge’s forty years of exceptional craft and dedication to whisky with a limited-edition spirit called the Master’s Ruby Reserve.
Johnnie Walker Master’s Ruby Reserve is a blend of whiskies from the ‘ghost’ distilleries of Cambus, Carsebridge, Pittyvaich and Port Ellen, all perfectly balanced with highly-aged expressions from Talisker, Royal Lochnagar, Glendullan and Cragganmore. All the whiskies used to create Johnnie Walker Master’s Ruby Reserve are at least forty years old and only 398 bottles are being released – an extremely limited run of an incredibly rare liquid.
This exceptional whisky is presented in a beautiful, hand-crafted golden-red Baccarat crystal decanter. This emblematic colour – a tribute to Jim’s ruby anniversary and a hallmark of Baccarat’s most exceptional pieces – is the embodiment of unique craftsmanship handed down from generation to generation since the mid-19th Century. Clear crystal is gradually fused with 24-carat gold powder at exactly 540°C to achieve the iconic golden red finish.
In addition to marking Jim’s ruby anniversary, in 2020 Johnnie Walker will be celebrating 200 years of pushing boundaries with a number of new releases and the opening of Johnnie Walker Princes Street – a landmark visitor experience in the heart of Edinburgh, Scotland.
Johnnie Walker Master’s Ruby Reserve has an ABV of 43% and a RRSP of £15,000 (including duties and taxes), on sale now.
