Johnnie Walker’s McLaren Mercedes edition $48,500 whisky inspired by Formula One driver Jenson Button
Masterminded by the Johnnie Walker’ Master Blender Jim Beveridge using the formula based on 2009 F1 World Champion Jenson Button’s choice of whiskies to create a unique new variant of the famous spirit, here’s a unique collectable for enthusiasts, the Johnnie Walker Vodafone McLarem Mercedes Edition which is an exclusive and rare blend made from Johnnie Walker’s unrivaled stocks of maturing malt and grain whiskies. This special-edition blended whisky limited to just 25 bottles is actually an impressive tribute by Johnnie Walker, the sponsor of the McLaren-Mercedes F1 team from the last 8-years, to its world-class racing and drivers. Also a part of the ‘Step Inside the Circuit’ global campaign for the Johnnie Walker sponsorship of the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes F1 Team, this limited-edition winning formula from Johnnie Walker & Jenson Button priced at $48,500, will be sold by an exclusive invitation only at Shanghai’s Johnnie Walker House, the very 1st whisky embassy and Johnnie Walker boutique outside of Scotland. And, the owners of these exclusive bottles will be entitled to a bespoke Johnnie Walker Step Inside the Circuit experience with Vodafone McLaren Mercedes, enjoying hospitality and behind-the-scenes access to an exhilarating F1 experience at a race city of their choice.
To create this Johnnie Walker Vodafone McLarem Mercedes Edition that involves the most precious whiskies from the house of Johnnie Walker, Jenson Button actually visited Johnnie Walker House in Shanghai, and was guided by Nick Morgan, blending expert and Diageo’s Head of Whisky Outreach, through the unique blended flavor discover experience, using nosing technique used by the master blender.
Notably, the flavors and scents selected by Jenson Button served as a foundation for Johnnie Walker’s Master Blender Jim Beveridge.
