A dog’s life

In celebration of the Lunar New Year, Johnnie Walker announced the release of limited-edition Johnnie Walker Blue Label Year of the Dog packaging. The annual limited-edition series, now in its fifth installment, honors each Lunar New Year with a commemorative bottle inspired by the Chinese Zodiac, the company says. The 2018 bottle artwork, created in collaboration with multi-award-winning Taiwanese artist Page Tsou, follows the Johnnie Walker striding man as he celebrates the Lunar New Year alongside the design’s proudly displayed Shar Pei, it says. Originally bred for Chinese nobility, the Shar Pei is renowned for its rarity, a key characteristic of Johnnie Walker Blue Label, and each bottle exemplifies exclusivity and prestige, it adds.
