Introduced in 1909, Johnnie Walker Black contains some 40 single malts including Talisker, Cardhu, Lagavulin and a high proportion of Islay malts. Originally called ‘Extra Special Old Highland Whisky’, the name was changed to ‘Black Label’ in 1909 due to customers ordering by the colour of the 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.

Johnnie Walker was Sir Winston Churchill’s favourite Scotch and his 1932 oil painting ‘Bottlescape’ features a bottle of Johnnie Walker Black Label.
