First crafted in a humble grocer's shop, Johnnie Walker has taken blended Scotch whisky from the four corners of Scotland to the four corners of the world. Today, this pioneering and innovative spirit has seen the brand become a stylish global icon.
The story of Johnnie Walker begins with the man who gave our whisky his name. In 1820, the young farmer’s son started his own grocer’s shop in the thriving town of Kilmarnock. His father had died the year before and the farm sold. Their trustees invested the proceeds, £417, in an Italian warehouse, grocery, and wine and spirits shop on the High Street in Kilmarnock, Ayrshire, Scotland. Walker managed the grocery, wine, and spirits segment as a teenager in 1820. It was a tough start in life.
