In recognition of Delhi Duty Free’s growing stature as a premium retail destination, DIAGEO announced the exclusive launch of their new blend of Scotch Whisky, Johnnie Walker Platinum Label 18 YO at the Delhi Duty Free at T3, Indira Gandhi International Airport. Delhi Duty Free is the first retailer to launch this brand. As a poignant tribute to Sir Alexander Walker, grandson to founder John Walker, the blend has been sourced from single malt and grain whiskies matured for a minimum of 18 years to achieve an exceptional quality and flavour of Scotch whisky.
Said Steve O Connor, Chief Executive Officer, Delhi Duty Free Services “Delhi Duty Free is today viewed as a premium retail destination in India, catering to brand conscious customers both nationally and internationally. Delhi Duty Free takes pride in its comprehensive range of Scotch whiskies, besides having a dedicated specialty area with over 150 Single Malt whiskies available at Uisge Beatha (Water of Life), which is one of a kind in India and we are delighted DIAGEO chose to launch the first bottle in India with Delhi Duty Free Services”.
Johnnie Walker Platinum Label 18 YO is perfectly aged, with all whiskies a minimum of 18 years old, and has a preciously crafted rich taste, blended together with a detailed precision. Inspired by the Walker Family’s tradition of private blends, which were used as celebratory whiskies for the company’s directors, Johnnie Walker Platinum Label 18 YO is a modern whisky for the contemporary, stylish consumer, to enjoy at their own exclusive celebrations. This whisky is exceptionally rich and sophisticated.
The Johnnie Walker Platinum Label 75 CL 18 YO will be exclusively available at Delhi Duty Free for US$85.
