Johnnie Walker's McLaren Mercedes Whiskey For $48,500 A Bottle

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.

This bottle of Formula One blended whisky is made from Johnnie Walker’s first-class stock of rare malt and grain whiskies, and is designed as a tribute to McLaren’s leading Formula One team and drivers.
