Diageo said: :"Our Keep Walking campaigns across the globe serve to spotlight relevant cultural conversations around progress, and Johnnie Walker Black Label The Jane Walker Edition and the Jane Walker icon is the next iteration of this work.

"Women have played a huge role in building our brand. We are proud to celebrate this and the many achievements of women in wider society and we hope to support people on the journey towards gender equality."

Set to launch in March, Jane will appear on special-edition bottles of the award-winning 12 year old Johnnie Walker Black Label to coincide with Women’s History Month celebrations and International Women’s Day.

For every bottle of Johnnie Walker Black Label The Jane Walker Edition, Johnnie Walker will donate $1 (72p) to various organisations supporting gender equality.
