Johnnie Walker Explores the Flavours of Scotland with the Origin Series

Johnnie Walker has launched the Origin Series, a new collection of four, 12-year old blended Scotch whiskies, that include single malts from some of the world's most famous distilleries, celebrating each of the distinct flavour profiles of the four corners of Scotland.

Each Scotch in the collection is crafted using only whiskies from a particular region to capture the primary flavour characteristics of that area: the fruity flavours of Speyside, the rich characteristics of the Highlands, the sweet notes of the Lowland region and the smoky finish of Islay whiskies.

Three of these limited editions are blended exclusively from some of Johnnie Walker's finest single malts, and a further edition expertly brings together quality single malt and grain whiskies to best represent the that region's flavour profile.

The whiskies in the series are:

  • Johnnie Walker Black Label Speyside Origin is a light and fruity whisky with hints of cut green apples and orchard fruit. It is made exclusively from single malts from the Speyside region of Scotland, with whisky from the distilleries of Cardhu and Glendullan at its heart.

  • Johnnie Walker Black Label Highlands Origin has a rich and dark fruitiness, with red berry and stone fruit notes. It is crafted exclusively from single malts from the Highlands, with whisky from Clynelish and Teaninich at its core.

  • Johnnie Walker Black Label Islay Origin has a slight spice and is for people who want to explore whiskies with a warming maritime smokiness. It is made exclusively from Islay single malts, including the world-famous Lagavulin and Caol Ila.

  • Johnnie Walker Black Label Lowlands Origin has a sweet, creamy vanilla character and notes of toffee. It is made exclusively from a variety of single malt and grain whiskies from the Lowlands including Glenkinchie and Cameronbridge.

The series packaging doubles as an accompanying guide to the whisky, and the region it comes from. Every limited-edition pack is adorned with a map of Scotland. The region that the whisky within originates from (Speyside, Highlands, Islay, or Lowlands) is highlighted, along with interesting facts and trivia relating to that part of the country.

John Williams, Johnnie Walker Global Brand Director said, "The Johnnie Walker Black Label Origin Series has been crafted to help people to discover and explore the distinct flavours profiles of the four corners of Scotland. At Johnnie Walker, we have access to an unparalleled range of fantastic single malts and this collection will be of particular interest to anybody who wants a greater understanding of how our small team of expert whisky-makers craft and balance those distinct flavour profiles to make Johnnie Walker Black Label."

The Johnnie Walker Black Label Origin Series is available globally from this month in selected duty free shops with an RRP of £35 / $46 USD / Ä40 EUR / $63 AUD / JPY 5000 for a 1 litre bottle.
