The Johnnie Walker House has collaborated with Philip Lawson Johnston, the world renowned glass engraver, to create a series of limited hand-engraved bottles. Bringing together the best of two crafts and inspired by its Scottish roots and classical Scottish tradition, this release boasts two iconic designs – the scene of the “Classic MacNab” Challenge from Scottish novel “John MacNab” and the “Distillery Heritage”, which pays homage to the art of whisky making.
“It is truly a privilege to witness Philip, one of the finest hand engravers of glass and Jim, one of world’s most respected whisky blenders, two extraordinary craftsmen, come together in this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to create beautiful, bespoke pieces of The John Walker, skillfully engraved as art pieces that will appeal to and be coveted by like-minded luxury consumers,” said Lawrence Law, global general manager of Johnnie Walker House.
“Where the craft of glass engraving meets the craft of whisky blending, this unique collaboration fittingly encapsulates our vision in taking the art, craftsmanship, heritage and creativity of Scotch whisky to the four corners of the world.”
The John Walker Philip Lawson Johnston Edition bottles will be exclusively available through Diageo’s growing network of luxury Scotch whisky embassies, called Johnnie Walker House.
