About Johnnie Walker King George V Lunar New Year 2022 Blended Scotch Whisky
Johnnie Walker King George v Costco. Is one of the most widely distributed brands of blended Scotch whisky in the world. Originated in the Scottish burgh of Kilmarnock in East Ayrshire.
The Scotch Whisky brand was founded by John Walker,]. A teetotaler who found his competitive edge in whiskies he blended himself. He offered his customers a consistent product, unlike most other grocers, who sold a line of single malts. When the company was passed on to the third generation, this share was already between 90 and 95 percent.
The legalization of the blending of grain and malt whiskies by the Spirits Act of 1860 marked the beginning of the modern blended Scotch whisky. Johnnie Walker’s first commercial blend, called Old Highland Whisky, was launched in 1867. Alexander Walker also introduced the brand’s signature square bottle and the distinctive slanted label.
In 1909, the company rebranded its whiskies, introducing the famous striding man logo and renaming the blends after the colors of their labels. The company joined Distillers Company in 1925, and was bought by Guinness & Grand Metropolitan in 1933.
This expression pays tribute to the Royal Warrant awarded by King George V in 1934. Making Johnnie Walker an official supplier of whisky to the royal household. The whiskies that go into the blend come from distilleries that were operational during the king’s reign and include Port Ellen, Cardhu, and Lochnagar. The luxuriously rich whisky is bottled at 86 proof.

Scotch is the most popular whisky in the world and is considered the king of them all! There are five whisky regions in Scotland (six if you count the not officially recognized Islands), and each of them produces spirits with unique properties. (The type of grain used determents the type of the scotch.)
Malt whisky is made of malted barley, and grain whisky uses other grains like corn or wheat. Most of the time, a whisky is blended from different distilleries hence the name blended scotch, but if a malt whisky is produced in a single distillery, we get something extraordinary called a single malt.
