Launched in 2011 to replace the Johnnie Walker 18 year old Gold Label, Johnnie Walker Platinum Label is a blend of malt and grain whiskies matured for a minimum of 18 years. In the Johnnie Walker line-up it is positioned between Gold Label Reserve and Blue Label.
In 1820, John Walker, the son of an Ayrshire farmer, established the family grocer's business at the age of fifteen in Kilmarnock and began selling Scotch whisky. His son, Alexander, joined the business a year before his father died in 1857, and by the time his sons joined the business, it was no longer a grocers, but a firm of whisky merchants.
John Walker's grandsons patented the name Johnnie Walker in 1908 and launched a White Label, Special Red Label and Extra Special Black label whisky. The white was dropped, but the red and black in their easily recognisable square bottles with the 'striding dandy' became internationally successful blends.
