Whether you're a whisky lover, collector or simply looking for a special present, you're sure to fall head over heels in love with Johnnie Walker's latest special edition bottle. 

Featuring the landmarks of London and Edinburgh just 4,000 hand numbered bottles have been created.
To celebrate the launch of the limited edition bottles Johnnie Walker Blue Label has partnered with GŎNG at Shangri-La Hotel, The Shard, and The Balmoral Hotel in Edinburgh to create two exclusive cocktail serves.

Eagle Eye Cocktail

I visited GŎNG last month to attend the launch of their ‘Eagle Eye’ cocktail, which has been created to celebrate the launch of the limited edition bottles.
The cocktail contains 45ml Johnnie Walker Blue Label, 3 dashes Abbott’s Bitter, 15ml Barolo Chinato and homemade strawberry and peppercorn shrub. Garnished with blue ‘Johnnie Walker Striding Man walking stick’ meringue, the iconic cocktail leaves you with a blue tongue to amuse your friends. 

With the ingredients sourced from neighbouring Borough Market, the drink is sweet without being  sickly.

The “Eagle Eye” will be available at GONG throughout June and July, priced at £17.00.

An ‘on the rocks’ version will also be available upon request
