Johnnie Walker, the famous scotch whiskey manufacturer, is a sponsor of the McLaren Mercedes Formula One team, and has now introduced a special limited-edition McLaren Mercedes Whiskey. This bottle of Johnnie Walker whisky has been created by Jim Beveridge (one of the company’s master blenders), based on a formula made by combining F1 driver Jenson Button’s choice of whiskies, to create a new blend.
