Johnnie Walker is celebrating the 2021 Chinese New Year with their release of the Blue Label Year of the Ox. This colorful limited edition design bottle and packaging was created by artist Shirley Gong. If you are familiar with the Chinese Zodiac releases from Johnnie Walker, she was also the artist selected for last year’s “Year of the Rat” release. The Year of the Ox illustration on the packaging signifies prosperity, growth, and good fortune. Inside the packaging is the classic Blue Label Scotch whisky blend made from rare and exclusive malt and grain whiskies.
Just like a strong Ox, Johnnie Walker Blue Label Year of the Ox is bottled at a stronger 92 Proof (46% ABV). That is higher than its standard bottling, which is 80 Proof (40% ABV). The 750-ml size bottle has an MSRP of $229.99. This year’s Year of the Ox limited edition is available in January 2021.
