Johnnie Walker Swing - named for the distinctive bottle, in which an irregular bottom allows it to rock back and forth. It was Alexander II last blend (gold & blue were based on his notes), and is very rare. Johnnie Walker Swing was originally created by Sir Alexander Walker, a master blender par excellence and grandson of John Walker, during the golden age of travel in 1932. On transatlantic voyages, barmen desperately stowed loose bottles onto racks to prevent breakages caused by the unrelenting pitch and roll of stormy weather on the high seas. But one bottle rode the ocean waves like the most experienced of sailors, swinging elegantly back and forth, and – in keeping with the Johnnie Walker philosophy – never losing its balance.
