Johnnie Walker Display

New objects on loan from the Johnnie Walker Archive have been added to the Johnnie Walker display in the Dick Institute's South Museum.

Highlights include a price list from the early 1900s: This inventory is the earliest document from the shop and records what was on sale in the shop. As well as selling Scotch whisky of course and other spirits, John Walker & Sons also sold exotic products such as tea from China and pepper from Jamaica. You can also see Sir Alexander Walker’s blending notebook, 1913-1918: Recording his ideas and thoughts on how the Johnnie Walker blends should be made. Also on display an 'Around the World' book, c.1920s: By 1920 Walker’s whiskies had travelled from Scotland to over 120 markets around the world. To mark this achievement, the company produced this book, an early travelogue that celebrated and thanked all the agents throughout the world.
