Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost & Rare


The Johnnie Walker Blue Label Ghost and Rare series explores very rare whiskies within the Johnnie Walker Blue Label reserves. Each release offers a fleeting opportunity to savour the depth of flavour of whiskies from “ghost” distilleries that have long-since closed, but whose spirit still lives on in the dwindling stocks of their maturing Scotch.

Handcrafted using just eight of the rarest whiskies from the unparalleled Johnnie Walker reserves, at the heart of this new release are exceptional whiskies from the “ghost” distillery of Port Dundas.

Explore the history

Built in 1811, Port Dundas became a whisky blending powerhouse, growing to become the largest distillery in Scotland until it closed its doors in 2010. Once a famous Grain Whisky distillery, Port Dundas shipped its distinct Scotch from Glasgow to ports worldwide for nearly 200 years.


“Port Dundas was one of the finest Grain Whisky distilleries in the world and the rare expressions that we have chosen from our reserves are some of the most distinctive it has ever produced - their slow maturation allowing their delicate Grain character to blossom.”

Dr Emma Walker, Johnnie Walker Master Blender
