Once celebrated by the people of China, Chinese New Year has become a worldwide event as cities across the globe are adorned in red and gold. 2019 marks the year of the Pig and to celebrate, Johnnie Walker has released its Blue Label Year of the Pig Limited Edition design – an award-winning scotch wrapped in a unique artwork, so good you won’t want to open the bottle.

Now in its sixth instalment, the individually illustrated and numbered bottles showcase the Johnnie Walker Blue Label scotch. Winning gold at the International Spirits Challenge and Scotch Whisky Masters in 2018, it is known for its velvety smooth and vibrant whisky, highlighting layers of rich fruit, spice and lingering of smokiness.

Creating a perfect gift this lunar season, only 1 in every 10,000 casks from the reserve obtain the richness and depth of character required to craft Blue Label – meaning every bottle is a rare handpicked single malt, sourced from all corners of Scotland.

In Chinese astrology, the Pig is a symbol of prosperity, generosity and abundance – we’ll drink to that!

Johnnie Walker Blue Label Year of the Pig Limited Edition Design is now available to purchase from all major liquor retailers, retailing for RRP $260.
