Blue Label, the ultra-premium expression of Johnnie Walker, was created by the brand master blender Jim Beveridge in 1992 with its main components being Caol Ila, Royal Lochnagar and Mortlach.
We’ve heard that even a dash of 1923 Auchtertool malt from long gone Lowland distillery was added to the original formula. A quarter of the Century later Blue Label remains benchmark of its category and keeps growing strong. Alfred Dunhill limited edition was released with cooperation of Alfred Dunhill Ltd, a London-based company founded in 1893 and specializing in men’s luxury goods. Signature elements from both brands have been incorporated into the design, including Johnnie Walker Blue packaging and Dunhill’s famous chassis design.
