A master amongst masters

The world of whisky knows few master blenders the likes of Jim Beveridge. Belied by his steadfast modesty, Jim’s illustrious career has seen him create some of the world’s most acclaimed whiskies. Renowned for his unwavering dedication to his craft, Jim’s forty years of whisky-making have seen him serve as both true guardian and restless pioneer for Johnnie Walker. His legacy expression - landing at the one-year anniversary of his retirement - distils forty years of understanding, knowledge and experience into a legacy blend of just two whiskies.

The Johnnie Walker Master´s Cut blend is a culmination of my time as a master blender – a blend that captures the essence of mastery. Bold, confident, effortless and elegant.

The perfection of blending just two whiskies

Jim blended just two whiskies - the lighter Single Grain Whisky from one of the oldest distilleries used to blend Johnnie Walker, Camronbridge, married to the full flavoured Single Malt Whisky from one of the youngest distilleries in Scotland, Roseisle, to create a spectacularly rich, smooth Scotch Whisky that embodies the craft of blending. This blend pays homage to the Johnnie Walker past and celebrates the brand’s journey into the future.
