In 2012, former Vodafone McLaren Mercedes (VMM) Driver and World Champion Jenson Button visited the Johnnie Walker House in Shanghai to embark on a special journey to create the John Walker & Sons Signature Blend Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Edition through Johnnie Walker’s finest whiskies.
This extraordinary whisky is the result of the John Walker & Sons Signature Blend program at the brand’s House in Shanghai. Jensen Button, gave the recipe by his own taste for the liquor in Shanghai. His “notes” were later taken to Scotland, where the final product was created by Johnnie Walker’s Master Blender, Jim Beveridge. Beveridge hand-picked malt and grain whiskies of exquisite quality from the four main distilling regions of Scotland and aged in a combination of bourbon, port and sherry casks. Some have been aged for more than two decades, and two of the malts for more than thirty years. Some are exceptionally rare, coming from distilleries that have since closed.
This limited edition of the John Walker & Sons Signature Blend, Vodafone McLaren Mercedes Edition, has been designed at just 25 units. They retailed exclusively at the brand’s House in Shanghai and were purchasable via invitation only.
This limited edition is presented in a carbon fibre display case containing a crystal John Walker and Sons decanter stopper and an actual wheel nut used on the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes cars during the 2011 Hungarian Grand Prix, which was won by Jenson Button on his 200th start – giving you ownership of a unique piece of motor-racing history. Only 20 units were made available for private sale which makes this supremely rare edition.
