Johnnie Walker unveils Masters of Flavour Scotch whisky

For the packaging of its rare Scotch whisky, Masters of Flavour, Diageo’s Johnnie Walker opted for a Baccarat crystal decanter and bespoke oak cabinetry. UK-based Butterfly Cannon is behind the pack design.

Johnnie Walker Masters of Flavour is the third and final installment in the Johnnie Walker Masters series, joining the previously released Johnnie Walker Master's Ruby Reserve and John Walker Masters' Edition.

Scotland’s lush landscape inspired the rich emerald-green color of the crystal decanter (Baccarat), which boasts 20° angled facets that echo Johnnie Walker’s iconic diagonal label. It is decorated in matte champagne gold foil (Kurz) and topped with a clear crystal stopper (Segede).

The decanter comes in a bespoke presentation case (Ch. Dahlinger) with FSC-certified oak veneer, a nod to the oak barrels used to age the whisky. Inside, a drawer houses the crystal stopper, and the coffret also includes a leatherette card pouch containing six cards printed with tasting information. The inner lining uses Winter & Company’s Wintan Lhasa Antique White, which combines PU and recycled leather fibers. The back of the cabinet is stained green. 

The whiskies used to create the blend are aged for at least 48 years. Just 288 bottles are available.
