Black Inspiration

Johnnie Walker unveiled the first ever crowd-sourced Limited Edition Johnnie Walker Black Label bottle at a unique launch party recently at the Zouk Mainroom.

SBTG.

The unique venture between 100,000 Johnnie Walker Facebook fans and Ong culminated in a bottle design that integrated military camo patterns into the label, giving it a snazzy look.

With only 8,000 of these limited edition bottles available (and only sold in Malaysia and Singapore), this is truly a one of a kind collectible. Oh, and don’t worry, they didn’t change the whisky.
