’tis the season for merriment, and anyone who thinks they’re unlikely to get their fill throughout the holiday period can look forward to a special New Year’s present come January. An exclusive Johnnie Walker pop-up is coming to the Ritz-Carlton’s bar, Ozone. The pop-up is coming to town to celebrate the release of the whisky giant’s intriguing new release – Blue Label Ghost And Rare Port Ellen. This is a blend of (the rather expensive) Johnnie Walker Blue and Islay ‘ghost distillery’ Port Ellen, which closed in 1983. Expect ‘rolling waves of waxy citrus, rich malt and tropical fruit flavours... perfectly balanced by the distinctive maritime smokiness of Port Ellen’. As well as trying this new product, whisky fans can also try a wide range of JW’s luxury tipples.
When Blue Label Ghost And Rare Port Ellen goes on sale here it is expected to cost $2,980 per bottle, so this is a good chance to get a wee dram for a lot less. No exact start date has been announced besides ‘January’ but we’ll let you know when we get confirmed details.
