The Four Corners Distillery Brand Homes of Johnnie Walker
The Four Corners distilleries represent four distinct Scottish locations, communities and flavours: Glenkinchie’s lowland gardens, Clynelish’s highland mystery, Cardhu’s Speyside orchards, and Caol Ila’s Islay coasts. Guests enjoy the opportunity to awaken their senses and explore each Corner’s natural environment and flavor influences through story-driven and emotionally engaging experiences, including Flavor Journeys and other specialized tours, tastings, and activities.
Creating experiences that entice and connect with a new generation of whisky lovers requires taking on some common myths about Scotch whisky: that it is an old-fashioned drink for only certain people, that it should be drunk neat and only after dinner, that single malts are better than blends.
Guests embark on a full-sensory exploration where they discover, sense, and smell every ingredient used in the whisky-making process. They also explore how flavor is created through hands-on “Story Props.” This helps them truly savor the whiskies – which they taste in different ways – and appreciate the craft and quality which lie behind them. Their interactions with brand home hosts, bartenders, and other special guides result in guests feeling connected to the people of the distillery and to Johnnie Walker.
Today’s consumers expect more than dry facts such as production numbers and alcohol percentages. Incredible storytelling, artifact exhibits, and captivating immersive effects, were all required to bring the stories and rich heritage inherent to each distillery to life. Every new brand home and guest experience reflects this deep commitment to seek out the stories that are true to their community and place.
