Bonus Scran - Exploring the world of Johnnie Walker's Four Corners

A bonus episode of our podcast, Scran, is now live.

On this special partner episode of Scran Rosalind investigates the famous Four Corners of Johnnie Walker.

Whilst most people, and not just whisky drinkers, are familiar with this instantly recognisable Scottish brand Rosalind takes a closer look at the malts that combine to create Johnnie Walker's iconic blends.

First stop on her journey was Glenkinchie Distillery, the lowland home of Johnnie Walker. On a tour of the distillery Rosalind found out about its history, processes, characteristics and so much more. You'll hear about the impact of an ongoing £185m investment into Scotch Whisky tourism in Scotland.

And how, as part of this project, each of the Four Corners visitor experiences have been completely transformed. At Glenkinchie Rosalind met with Ervin Trykowski, Global Ambassador for Diageo, who filled her in on all the exciting changes. 

Throughout this episode Rosalind pauses to speak to ambassadors from the three other distilleries that make up the four corners distilleries, namely, Cardhu, Caol Ila and Clynelish. Each of which bring their own unparalleled flavour to the table.

You'll hear from Hazel Urquart, Assistant Experience, Events and Retail Manager at Clynelish, Joanne Henderson, Assistant Experience and Events Manager for Cardhu and Kirsty Basnett, Assistant Manager Experience and Events for Cardhu.
