Johnnie meets Porsche

Johnnie Walker Blue Label and Porsche Design Studio have teamed up to create some original design pieces to facilitate the perfect serve of the whisky. The collection consists of The Chiller and The Cube but the main piece is a made-to-order Johnnie Walker Blue Label Private Bar.

The design of the bar is inspired by the Johnnie Walker’s label which sits at a 24 degree angle on every bottle. The bar is made from brushed titanium and has a luxurious leather interior. The structure opens up to reveal the tools to create a perfect whisky experience:

  • Two bottle and one magnum of Johnnie Walker Blue Label
  • Four illuminated crystal glasses
  • Chilled water
  • Ice bowl

“We have remained committed to both modern and classical design principles through the design process, combining luxurious leather and metals,” explains Roland Heiler, Managing Director of Porsche Design Studio, Austria. “The resulting vision is a mix of traditional and high tech that combine to make the objects exceptional, setting them apart from any other gift packages.”

The Chiller and The Cube will be available at Harrods, Selfridges and Harvey Nichols, and Royal Mile Whiskies from October 2011. The Private Bar is available made to order exclusively from Harrods. The collection will also be displayed at London hotels including The Savoy and the Mandarin Oriental.
