When Alexander Walker created the first commercial blend “Old Highland Whisky” in 1867, he set new standards and initiated a revolution in the industry of spirits. Johnnie Walker Blue Label was created in 1992 as a tribute to visionaries Alexander and his father John Walker, who brought a new dimension of enjoying whisky to the world.
