Like its Striding Man logo, Johnnie Walker scotch whisky moves ahead amid uncertain times as it celebrates its 200th year.
In the true spirit of exploration and celebrating its varied flavor profiles, the global whisky company introduces its Johnnie Walker Black Label Origin Series partnership with OTO in Poblacion, Makati.
The Johnnie Walker Black Label Origin Series features two blends: Johnnie Walker Black Label Speyside Origin and the Johnnie Walker Black Label Lowlands Origin. Both blends are made exclusively using whiskies from the Speyside and Lowland regions of Scotland to bring out the primary flavor characteristics of those areas.
Johnnie Walker Black Label Speyside Origin is a light and fruity whisky with hints of cut green apple and orchard fruit. Made exclusively from quality single malts from the Speyside region, it features whisky from the distilleries of Cardhu and Glendullan.
Johnnie Walker Black Label Lowlands Origin has a luxuriously sweet and creamy mouthfeel, with vanilla character and subtle notes of toffee. It is made exclusively from a variety of single malt and grain whiskies from the Lowlands, including distilleries of Glenkinchie and Cameronbridge.
“The Johnnie Walker Black Label Origin Series focuses on the most distinct flavors that Johnnie Walker Black Label drinkers love, and creates other expressions out of those,” said Rian Asiddao, Diageo Reserve brand ambassador. “It’s perfect if you’re feeling adventurous and want to dabble in different tastes.”
The Johnnie Walker Black Label Origin Series is available exclusively at The Booze Shop (www.boozeshop.ph).
The OTO Origin Cocktails
If you’re the type who can drink your Johnnie Walker mixed rather than neat, or with a splash of water, then you’ll enjoy these two Johnnie Walker Black Label Origin Series cocktails available at OTO this September.
The Take Over, The Breaks Over is made with Johnnie Walker Black Label Speyside Origin as the base, plus sherry port, pandan syrup, and citric adjusted tepache, creating a mix that’s rich in citrus flavors, with hints of pineapple, vanilla and berry fruits.
Meanwhile, Good Times, Bad Times features Johnnie Walker Black Label Lowlands Origin, corn tea, ripe mango and palm sugar syrup. It has a smoky taste with flavors of toasted nuts, popcorn and caramel.
These special cocktails are part of OTO’s monthly collaboration concoctions, with proceeds to help the Poblacion bar community. Each order will come with a 120ml cocktail and a free 60ml bottle of the base whisky used. Follow OTO on Instagram @oto.ph.
