“A Journey Shared in Uganda”

Uganda Breweries Limited (UBL), in partnership with the Kampala Serena Hotel, gathered a select group of celebrities, Captains of industry and influencers for the second exclusive Black Tie dinner. It was an evening that showcased the luxury of fine dining at the Pearl of Africa restaurant and celebrated the official launch of the prestigious JOHNNIE WALKER® BLUE LABEL™ Limited Edition Collection designed by Alfred Dunhill in Uganda.

Being only the second of three countries to launch this esteemed pinnacle of craftsmanship in Africa, Uganda’s top business leaders were treated to an epic night of fine dining, sumptuous food infused with various JOHNNIE WALKER® whiskeys, bespoke interactive experiences and the coveted opportunity to be the first to see and purchase the JOHNNIE WALKER® BLUE LABEL™ Limited Edition Collection designed by Alfred Dunhill in Uganda.

The Limited Edition Collection features a 750ml bottle of the iconic JOHNNIE WALKER® BLUE LABEL™, its interior evoking the contours of a map, bringing the two iconic brands’ shared journey to life. The bottle’s exterior seamlessly marries the JOHNNIE WALKER® BLUE LABEL™ signature blue colour packaging with Dunhill’s distinctive ‘Chassis’ design and gunmetal finish made famous in Alfred Dunhill’s revered leather goods.

The evening saw the esteemed guests to The Kampala Serena Hotel given an opportunity to sample various JOHNNIE WALKER® whisky blends in neat and cocktail form, under the mentorship of renowned South African whisky mentor Bernard Gutman.

“John Walker and Alfred Dunhill are truly iconic pioneers, epitomising British craft traditions and the pursuit of unparalleled quality in their bespoke products. Their entrepreneurial leadership and superior offerings have elevated the celebration of epic achievements across the world. Given this provenance, the Limited Edition Collection presents perfect gifting options for toasting extraordinary accomplishments,” said Nyimpini Mabunda, Uganda Breweries Limited Managing Director.

The JOHNNIE WALKER® BLUE LABEL™ Limited Edition Collection designed by Alfred Dunhill will be available through exclusive retailers at UGX750,000. Customers will have the option of choosing to engrave and personalize this extraordinary gifting item at no extra cost.

JOHNNIE WALKER® BLUE LABEL™ is blended from rare casks of whiskies from the four corners of Scotland. Only sublime, rare whiskies are used in the blending of JOHNNIE WALKER® BLUE LABEL™, with only 1 in 10,000 casks containing whisky of sufficient character to deliver its remarkably smooth signature taste.  JOHNNIE WALKER® BLUE LABEL™ is a Scotch Whisky that stands as a testament to the art of JOHNNIE WALKER’s Master Distiller, Jim Beveridge.
