John Walker & Sons Voyager

John Walker & Sons, the world’s leading luxury whisky house announces that John Walker & Sons Voyager, a super glamorous 1920s-style yacht will arrive in Europe this May to launch the new triple malt, John Walker & Sons odyssey.

The stunning yacht will begin its European voyage from Genoa in early May. It will visit Cannes, Monaco, Athens, Barcelona, Amsterdam, London, Hamburg and Copenhagen before finally docking in Edinburgh in August – returning to the brand home of Scotland.

At each destination, the John Walker & Sons Voyager  will play host to a series of high-profile events and experiences that will celebrate each port’s own story of progress and innovation and recognise national influencers who embody the pioneering spirit and vision of the Walker family. These ‘game changers’ who have each broken new ground and carved new paths for those around them will come together with the region’s most progressive influencers to engage a new generation of whisky drinkers and luxury aficionados in a world of quality craftsmanship, heritage and modern innovation. 

The Voyager will dock in London on 15th, 16th, 17th July and Edinburgh on 12th, 13th, 14th August 2013. 

 John Walker & Sons Voyager was inspired by the launch of a new blend, JOHN WALKER & SONS ODYSSEY, which commemorates the 80th anniversary of one of Sir Alexander Walker’s greatest innovations – the creation of a decanter for use on luxury cruise liners which moved to match the motion of the sea.
