John Walker & Sons Voyager is a glamorous 1920s-style yacht which will be traversing the four corners of the world this year. The yacht’s journey will re-create
the epic ocean voyages that took Johnnie Walker from the four corners of Scotland to the four corners of the world. It will arrive in Europe this May to mark the launch of the new triple malt John Walker & Sons Odyssy.
After completing the Asian leg of its journey, which retraced the original spice route, the yacht will begin its European voyage from the historic port of 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.
Alison Forrestal, General Manager of Diageo Reserve Western Europe, comments “John Walker & Sons Voyager will create an unparalleled opportunity to celebrate the vision of the Walker family who grew a small grocery store, founded in 1820, into the world’s number one Blended Scotch Whisky brand. John Walker & Sons Voyager will dock in London on 15th, 16th, 17th July and Edinburgh on 12th, 13th, 14th August 2013. Some of the most progressive individuals in the UK will be invited aboard over the three days the yacht is in each port.
