The heritage of johnny Walker whiskies dates to 1820 when John Walker opened a small shop in Kilmarnock in Scotland and began selling Scotch Whiskey. John Walker made a name for himself by mastering the art of blending single malt whiskies from distilleries all across Scotland to create a very high quality whiskey, much better than each of the single malt whiskey. Much like wine, Scotch whisky is identified by the region in which it is made. There are four regions in all: Highland, Lowland, Islay and Campbeltown. These last two were sometimes combined and some simply refer to Eastern and Western Malts. In more recent times, the Highland Region has been sub-divided into northern, eastern, Island, and a further sub-division, Speyside, has become a region onto itself.
