Diageo's GTME Americas unit has begun shipping two premium variants for the group's Johnnie Walker blended Scotch whisky brand.

The division will back the launches of Johnnie Walker Platinum Label and Johnnie Walker Gold Reserve both in- and out-of-store. The launches in the Americas pre-empt a global roll-out in Travel Retail in the first half of this year.

The Platinum variant is an 18-year-old blended Scotch and is available in 50cl, 70cl, 75cl and 1-litre formats. The Gold Label reserve is targeted at up-and-coming affluent male and female consumers in emerging markets.

The company will be showcasing the new releases at the IAADFS show in Orlando this week.
