Some individuals are truly dedicated to their jobs and a stellar example of this is Master Blender-Jim Beveridge. He recently completed forty years of service with exceptional craft and dedication to whiskey, a feat that Johnnie Walker decides to celebrate with a limited-edition spirit called the Master’s Ruby Reserve. – Yes, that’s right!
Made from some of the finest Scotch in the Johnnie Walker reserve, the exclusive spirit is an amalgamation of ghost whiskeys from Cambus, Carsebridge and Pittyvaich and aged expressions of Royal Lochnagar, Glendullan, and Cragganmore which are further enriched with notes of Talisker and Port Ellen. Commenting on it, Jim in a statement said – “Every whiskey that has gone into the creation of this new expression holds a special place in my heart. I worked at each of these distilleries during various points of my career and the flavors and smells of those whiskeys transport me back to very happy times throughout my career at Johnnie Walker.
The spirits used in the making of the Ruby reserve are at least 40 years old and the resultant whiskey is packed and presented in a handcrafted gold and red Baccarat crystal decanter. Boasting 43% alcohol by volume (ABV), the exclusive edition is limited to only 398 bottles, each priced at £15,000 or US$19,500. Well, if you’re a true connoisseur of whiskeys, you wouldn’t want to miss out on this one!
