On this week's episode of Scran, we have partnered with Johnnie Walker to celebrate 200 years of the brand.
On this episode, I am joined by Head of Whisky Outreach at Diageo and the author of ‘A Long Stride’, Nicholas Morgan.
Published this year to coincide with the bicentenary, the book takes a look at the history of Johnnie Walker, exploring how it grew from a humble grocery store in Kilmarnock to the global brand it is today.
I am also joined by author and whisky consultant Blair Bowman. He is widely known for founding World Whisky Day and listeners of Scran will know that Blair has featured on the podcast before.
Blair chats about what blended Scotch is (and the difference between blended malt), his favourite Johnnie Walker drinks and, of course, his desert island drams.
We’d love to hear from you in next week’s episode.
