The Spanish capital was selected as the location for the first Johnnie Walker experiential retail flagship due to its status as a leading tourism and retail destination and the popularity of Scotch in the country.

“We’re incredibly excited to bring this Johnnie Walker flagship to Europe. Madrid is a world class tourist destination and a cultural hub of cutting-edge design, gastronomy, nightlife and business innovation. Whether you’re from the city or just visiting, the flagship will be a great way to spend some time, learn more about Scotch, or design the perfect one-of-a-kind gift.” John Kennedy President of Diageo Europe

The launch of the new retail experience follows the announcement of a £150 million investment in Scotch whisky tourism by Diageo throughout Scotland – including plans for the opening of a new state-of-the-art Johnnie Walker visitor experience in Edinburgh, as part of the biggest concerted programme ever seen in Scotland’s whisky tourism sector and is the latest announcement from Johnnie Walker as the brand prepares to celebrate its 200th anniversary year in 2020.
