Jenson Button, the former Formula One champion who won the title in 2009, has inspired one of the largest beverage manufacturers Daigeo brand, which makes the famous Johnnie Walker, to produce a whiskey worth £30,000 ($48,500).
This extraordinary whisky is the result of the John Walker & Sons Signature Blend program at the brand’s House in Shanghai. Jensen Button, gave the recipe by his own taste for the liquor in Shanghai. His “notes” were later taken to Scotland, where the final product was created by Johnnie Walker’s Master Blender, Jim Beveridge who made a custom blend cask of Johnnie Walker whiskies.
Limited edition of the John Walker & Sons Signature Blend, Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Edition, has been designed at just 25 units. They will retail exclusively at the brand’s House in Shanghai and purchasable via invitation only. A whopping sum paid per bottle will provide access to the exclusive Formula 1 events under the tutorial of Johnnie Walker’s Step Inside the Circuit campaign.
All those who have a taste for good quality drink and enjoy watching Formula One races as to feel the fragrance of asphalt with Jenson Button, will appreciate this drink. If you have £30,000 of course.
