With its distinctive square bottle, its label angled precisely at 24° and the iconic Striding Man, Johnnie Walker is the world's best selling Scotch whisky. It was created in Kilmarnock in 1865 and is now available in almost every country in the world. Between 1906 & 1909 John Walker's grandsons introduced the colour names which the bottles still bear to this day.

John Walker & Sons Old Highland Whisky has affectionately become known to collectors as the "White Label"; and this spectacular example has to have been bottled sometime between the brand receiving the 1907 Christchurch exhibition award, and the expression's demise in 1909 when it was replaced by the "colour" label series.

That means this bottle predates the first World War, and is as old as the Striding Man himself!

As you would expect with a bottle of this vintage, there is no stated ABV or bottle size, but this is approximately the same size a modern day 70cl bottle.

Please examine all images of the lot, any packaging and labels carefully and satisfy yourself as to their condition before making a bid.
