First created in 1908, the Striding Man has become one of the world's most recognised brand icons and is symbolic of progress for all those who enjoy Johnnie Walker.
Led by Master Blender Jim Beveridge, our team of Johnnie Walker blenders uphold our reputation for quality and consistency and are driven by a desire to constantly innovate.
The brand became popular, but after Walker's death it was his son Alexander ‘Alec’ Walker and grandson Alexander Walker II who were largely responsible for establishing the whisky as a favoured brand. The Spirits Act of 1860 legalised the blending of grain whiskies with malt whiskies and ushered in the modern era of blended Scotch whisky. Blended Scotch whisky, lighter and sweeter in character, was more accessible, and much more marketable to a wider audience. Andrew Usher of Edinburgh, was the first to produce a blended whisky, but the Walkers followed in due course.
