More about the New Collection

Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare Glenury Royal whiskey lie the exceptional Highland single malt Glenury Royal, from the “ghost” distillery. Its colorful history is as exceptional as its uniquely rich and fruity whiskeys.

Above all, Johnnie Walker Master Blender Jim Beveridge and his team hand-selected two exceptionally rare whiskeys from the “ghost” distilleries of Cambus and Pittyvaich. Additionally, with a perfect balance of the following notes of Glenury Royal:

  • Creamy Toffee
  • Butterscotch
  • Sumptuous orchard fruits
  • Sweet Apple
  • Delicate apricot

However, five other rare whiskeys from Glen Elgin, Inchgower, Glenlossie, Cameronbridge, and Glenkinchie bring waves of vanilla, heather honey, and dried fruits. It weaves through smooth dark chocolate and nutty layers to create an exploration of the inimitable Glenury Royal.

Above all, the Glenury Royal distillery founded in 1825 by Captain Robert Barclay. Just a few weeks after opening, the distillery was destroyed by a devastating fire. Under Barclay’s tenacious leadership, it flourished to become one of only three Scottish distilleries to enjoy a royal title. Today the rare spirit of Captain Barclay lives on in the dwindling stocks of this incredible “ghost” whiskey.

Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare Glenury Royal contains ABV of 43.8%. Additionally, with an RRP of £300 for 1L. Each bottle is individually numbered.
