Johnnie Walker Blue Label - Lunar New Year Edition - Year of the Rabbit

In Chinese culture, the rabbit is known to be the luckiest out of all the twelve animals - symbolising mercy, elegance, and beauty. Rabbits, especially ones with white hair, are also a symbol of longevity in traditional Chinese culture.​

​This limited-edition design by Angel Chen also features clouds, symbolising greater heights as the rabbit ascends to the heavens, and mountains, another symbol of longevity. This is the perfect gift for a loved one to signify wishes of a shared, long and well-lived life.

To mark this year, we have collaborated with Angel Chen. The ANGEL CHEN brand is part of a wave of new young Chinese brands making an impact globally.

Her work is often inspired by different generations, different genders and cultures coming together to create something fresh and new. These ideals echo the craft of Johnnie Walker Master Blender Emma Walker - taking different types of whisky from different distilleries, with differing ages of maturation and blending them together perfectly to create a masterpiece.

“There’s a defiant energy to my illustrations which bring to life the vibrant spirit of the rabbit as it leaps across the design, symbolising how we need to keep moving forward, spreading goodness throughout the year to come.”
